$25 Raspberry Pi plays Quake 3

The team behind the upcoming $25 Raspberry Pi computer demonstrated Quake 3 running on the diminutive PC.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK registered charity which hopes to promote the study of computer science within schools and to that end is planning to offer an ultra-low cost ARM-based computer.

The device is expected to go on sale around November and will offer a 700Mhz ARM11 CPU, at least 128MB of RAM, USB 2 and 1080p capable video output.

In a post on the Raspberry Pi blog, the Foundation revealed that the device will be based on the Broad com BCM2835 application processor and showed off a video of a prototype playing the Quake 3 demo.

The team pointed out he device is not intended for gaming but was a good demonstration of the power available in the device. The main processor was said to be "under body temperature" even after running the demo several times.
