British chip designer Imagination has produced a barebones computer to compete with the Raspberry Pi.
Called the Creator CI20, the board has a more powerful processor than the Pi, more memory and more onboard storage.
For its graphics, it uses a version of the Imagination chip that is also found inside Apple's iPad tablet.


The small computer enters a growing and competitive market, with the Raspberry Pi already having sold almost four millions units.
The CI20 will cost £50 ($65) and can be ordered now, though the first units will not be dispatched to customers until January 2015.
As a chip designer, Hertfordshire-based Imagination is better known for drawing up the plans and specifications for processors that are used to handle graphics in Apple gadgets as well as phones from many other manufacturers.
With the CI20, Imagination is entering a market that is crowded with small form-factor, barebones computers that are being used by hobbyists and others for small embedded computing projects.
