BeagleBone Black for gesture recognition with Kinect?

Hi there,

I’m thinking about using the BeagleBone Black for image processing (gesture recognition) in combination with the Kinect. I want the gesture recognition to work in real time. Is the BeagleBone Black right for this or should i choose the Raspberry PI (because it has a better GPU) I’m not sure if the GPU or the Processor will be the main point in getting the system to be able to work in real time. Thanks for your help.
