It should be here by the start of next week, on holiday I have time to build it all together. It’s quite a fundamental change- 64bit cpu and dual core which runs at a clock speed not that much more than the current one does. The performance tests suggest about four times the speed though. Such is the absurdity of measuring by clock speed, I sppose it’s like reading output power for a Hifi.
