But from embedded development point of view, just boot straight to Linux from Coreboot ;-). Linux drivers will take care of the rest of system initialization. The interesting thing is, the kit also provides an "explansion" board to tap into the I/O of the x64 system (the AMD G-Series APU), well, I exagerrated a bit, I meant you could hook directly to the I/O which very probably connects to the "southbridge" of the entire system.
Anyway, from pure raw performance point-of-view, this is a real raw power monster to play with. But, I'm not sure how it compares to BeagleBoard when playing with signal processing. But surely for computer vision stuff, it's certainly very powerful given that OpenCV is tuned for x86 (x64?) architecture by default.
I think it's also an interesting platform to play with Coreboot and to understand the inner working of modern day x86/x64 processor.
