@trini @bradfa As part of the ongoing discussion of the need for higher end arm64 desktop solutions... I'd be far more willing to be on something from fsl/nxp with proper docs and community support than anything in a similar core configuration from amlogic, rockchip, etc. http://linuxgizmos.com/first-i-mx8-quadmax-sbc-breaks-cover/
@mdp @trini @email@example.com the problem is they're not very high end; they'd provably make a good laptop, but until you can persuade them to put say 8xa72 or better in then it's a no go.
@penguin42 @mdp @trini @bradfa NXP LX2160 is a nice chip, and Solidrun are coming out with a mini-ITX board later this year.
@arnd @mdp @trini @firstname.lastname@example.org oh, 16 a72's, yeh that's getting useful
@penguin42 @mdp @trini @bradfa also 64GB of RAM and lots of I/O (24 Lanes of PCIe 4.0 or SATA or Ethernet), and apparently for a reasonable price.
@arnd @mdp @trini @email@example.com that will be nice; the high end server ARMs from various vendors are nice, but v they v do have high end server prices and are tricky to get hold of.
