No mention of CHiP? Is it not considered a single board computer?

Anyone /hyped/ for the new APU's?

DESU for that I'd just go with a Pi 2. Plenty powerful enough and tons of support/guides. For anyone even vaguely technically-minded, it just werks.
>>
>>51582750
They care more about making a product at a viable price point than free software. Nobody has done it because it would probably be prohibitively expensive to do so. Normies can just about be persuaded to give the RPi foundation money to get kids to code, they aren't going to pay to subsidise some purists desire for a board that runs on 100% free software.

I am a new fag here, I would like some pi projects suggestions, I would like to make a touch screen car cpu with fm tuner. Only thing is I have no clue where to start.

First time I've ever seen it suggested that hardware capable of running free software is somehow more expensive.
Keep em coming /g/.

ODROID are great.
>>
>>51582640
ODROID XU-3 is the only one. It's $179 and end-of-life.
If you dn't need Display Port, there's the new XU4 for $74 that's better than the XU3 all around.
>>
>>51583375
>hardware capable of running free software
Hardware capable of running without proprietary firmware, and yes, it is frequently more expensive if you want the same level of performance. Almost everything requires some amount of proprietary code, frequently in the form of binary blobs that you have no control over, just to initialize.

The stuff that's actually free as in freedom that costs the same performs far, far worse. It's why you don't see more MIPS laptops and why Longsoon is a name completely unknown outside of China and /g/.
>>
>>51582798
I have a good amount of technical knowledge, I'm looking for the best one for the price.
Also interested in banana pro for openbsd support
>>
I just want something that has GPIO, multiple SATA ports, gigabit Ethernet, enough processing power to serve a webpage and is under 100 dollars. That's literally all I want. A home server board that I can control home appliances with too, so a next-level home server. Too bad the only option is going x86 and paying at least 200 for a power-chugging ATX shitbox taking up a load of space. Or 100 bucks for some P4-era crap that also doubles as a space heater.
>>
>>51582475
Still looking for an ARM board with full and proper OpenGL 2 support, not opengl ES.

I need this to test an ancient software port to ARM, but it runs like ass in mesa software mode. I cannot get the source to modify it to work as opengl ES either.
>>
>>51582629
I have a 5350, doing pretty much what I toss at it.

As far as I understand, the Jaguar solved some Bulldozer problems by going backwards.
>>
>>51582750
It seems it's mostly the fault of ARM and their Mali GPUs which require binary blobs.

Are any of these good for running mame and putting it into an arcade cab? It looks like most of these only have HDMI out. Any good way to convert the signal to 15khz for arcade CRT monitors?

I've use Alix boards from this manufacturer, they're great. The APU might just be perfect since it runs CoreBoot

Whats the price point? Are there any other SBCs that have ECC?

I have the same t-shirts not a single person in my class gets it what a bunch of illiterate nubs.. Can't wait to get into uni and hopefully have some nerds in my class.. or at least have some cool people.. This was wildly off-topic.

I have nothing to contribute with so I'll lurk some more thanks all!

>NVIDIA Jetson TK1

are you guys fucking retarded or what?

I paid 199$ for my Nvidia shield Tv and it has the X1 chip, which is like 7x better than the K1, and it also comes with a controller and other shit like hdmi-cec and a fully fledged operating system.

and yes, it plays my goddamn 1080p h264 hi10p cartoons at 40% cpu.

BeagleBone original has no HDMI port, so I don't see why no graphics support is a "serious flaw". It's a minor flaw at worst.

Is there any more information about it anywhere?
getchip doesn't tell you shit, like shipping costs, available accessories if any, etc.

This is especially true thanks to fucking cherrytrail.

Fucking 20 dollar CPUs that obliterate anything ARM has in the same performance category.

>Reminder that ARM is objectively superior to x86.

If it is so good, why doesn't anything use ARM? The world's greatest supercomputers don't. Normal computers don't. And most importantly, Intel doesn't make ARM CPU's. If the world leader and only innovator in computing doesn't see ARM as relevant, you shouldn't either.
>>
>>51594858

Gee, it's not like 99% percent of smartphones use arm
>>
>>51594858
mainstream computers will soon have ARM with Zen
And there already is many supercomputer that use ARM

>>51596287

>>51594247
All the money in the world won't get you significantly better batteries. 8 bit MCUs have microamp sleep modes (Arduino wastes a lot of power with its linear regulator, but even so it beats Raspberry Pi).
>>
Are there any ARM or MIPS boards with 2+ GbE ports (maybe 10GbE and SFP), that can be used for bare-metal development?
I can only find some super expensive development boards from the manufacturers.
>>
>>51593943
ARM has better power/performance than Intel's memetrail, and it's only going to get better over time. Plus ARM SoCs are way cheaper.
>>
>>51583375
have you ever even priced out a lemote system?

if you can even find them they're hilariously overpriced for the performance they offer, and you'd get more security running an older high-end system with no backdoors anyway
>>
>>51596287
>And there already is many supercomputer that use ARM
shitty rpi clusters aren't supercomputers

I don't think any manufacturers will have a desktop/server ARM chip out for several years to come, even then they'll probably be absolute failures except in tasks that can take advantage of the fuckton of cores they'll fit in them
>>
>>51598208
