    I've been seeing some pretty great benchmarks for Apple's A8x and it got me thinking, what would be a comparable in terms of processing/graphics abilities in a "single-board computer" setup? Something similar to a Raspberry Pi/ Beagleboard, etc... (could be ARM, Atom, etc...) just wondering what would be a similar equivalent.

    I'm probably thinking about this because I've been considering setting up a small computer for (Retro) Gaming, and XBMC/Plex/etc... functionality.
    I was really bummed about the Apple TV not getting a proper update, but think it would be fun to put something together.

    XU3 has faster SoC and eMMC 5 storage I/O so it's closer to a desktop experience especially if you're running Linux. Definitely go with the XU3 unless you're on a tight budget then get the U3.
