Yeah did you already check which big capital S processor the
raspberry Pi has?
Single core ARM and low clocked.
If you cluster ARMs, why not get for a few dollar more a quadcore
1.7Ghz ARM A9.
If you buy a lot i bet you can get it for a big reduction.
If you produce a board yourself, buying in quadcore ARMs is relative
With quadcores at least the ARM cluster can have a throughput then
that's higher than a single i7 CPU,
which shows the advantages of a cluster.
With raspberry pi's no one cares of course.
