RViz Performance on a Raspberry Pi 2

I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in a VirtualBox. When I start RViz, the overall performance of the system becomes super crappy (and when using the 3D Acceleration Feature in the VirtualBox settings, RViz always crashes, see here). Since I have a spare Raspberry Pi 2, I thought about setting up ROS on it and use its RViz remotely for visualization by publishing the relevant topics over the network.

So my question is:

Is anyone using RViz on a Raspberry Pi 2 and if so, how does it perform (running smoothly or lagging)?

Since I have a spare Raspberry Pi 2, I thought about setting up ROS on it and use its RViz remotely for visualization by publishing the relevant topics over the network.network, but I have some concerns regarding whether the pi has enough processing power to run Rviz nicely.
