Promising

Upcoming devices looking promising, but not yet available for general sale.

Unsuitable

Devices too expensive not listed here (that'd be a looong list).

See libreplanet processor review for list of processors, pricing (where found), features including Treacherous-capability, FSF Hardware Endorsement Criteria capability etc.

Some benchmark comparison between different processor famillies, which might help in deciding which platform would best fit the requirements can be found here

Hardware list from the PlugApps project here. Good overview of differences in SheevaPlug-class devices.
