$199 Gizmo Board is High-Powered Raspberry Pi Alternative

GO, GIZMO, GO! Gizmosphere, a joint venture between AMD and Sage Electronic Engineering, has just announced its entry into the embeddable computer market with the Gizmo Board. At $199, it's a steep price to pay, especially considering that the most expensive version of the Raspberry Pi is only $35. However, the Gizmo boasts more raw horsepower, SATA connectivity, uses the OpenCL API for GPU processing--all while retaining the kind of micro controller functionality that makes the Arduino popular. It does have one important thing in common with the Raspberry Pi though: both are sold out for the time being.
