    Turned out to be a BCM43438 instead of a ESP8266 - maybe they assessed both.
    The video decoder is now a lot faster, and the GPU is 20% faster, which I guess is better than a slap in the face.

    Lack of WiFi was the biggest complaint about the RPi, so it is good they fixed this, and also got to 1.2GHz too, so they're competitive there as well.

    For the price and for the support ecosystem, the RPi is hard to beat.
