Cool find. Dual core is good. One core can act as CPU accelerator second one as GPU for example. Or second as support CPU... And very good prices. I think ARM will be best choose.

"A number of them support USB OTG as well. Not useful for a pure graphics accelerator, but you could use it to support a hard drive/thumb stick or USB gamepad."
