KiCAD design of the schematic is available along with

Reading the datasheet, the device is capable of addressing 3GB RAM,
though I am not sure any performance improvements are gained because
the L1 cache is only 32k :(

With 64 bit words to chew, the cache is only about 4K words.
Down from the 8K words in a 32 bit ARM  :( :( :(

Still, the graphics ought to be quicker with the hardware present
in the chip and ability to move data in larger chunks.
