See DeveloperBox – 96BoardsThis was announced a while ago and now it’s offered for sale. Unlike other cheaper setups this has 24 cores A-53 on a chip, socketed DDR4 RAM, comes from a consortium from China and Japan and comes in an ATX box. TDP for the CPU is 5W. One thing I don’t like about it is the price, $1230 USD. I won’t be rushing out to buy one but it’s definitely a good one to have on the list…

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
