The second somebody needs to "design a board", you'll end up with massive delays, high prices, distribution and production problems - i.e. the situation we already have.


Indeed, be gone with all those man-made, engineered boards! Let's move to only naturally occurring ones, no people involved with their creation!

All boards come from some engineers somewhere...

Inside of AROS, only Papara is "focusing" on ARM, no?


no. few "core developers" have done and still do actual work on arm port even it it doesnt seem to be a priority just now. without it there wouldnt be any aeros, i guess..

With apologies to AMD (related to the many cored Ryzen series), having more than eight threads on a desktop cpu doesn't really serve a useful purpose.


It seems they have overlooked your advice for the desktop (this isn't their new server line)...

@billt

Intel will also launch a 12 core/24 threads i9 chip based in Skylake

@roadmaps

Also I occasionally go hunting for new PPC roadmap info.

This is from their forums:
Q:
"On spec-wise LS1021A or P2020 could be a choice, but which one to go with, ARM or Power Architecture core ?
Does NXP continue freescale longevity program?
Is there plans to stop producing new Power Architecture processors, or is the ARM product line just a spin-off test?"

A:
"NET-N1863 What's Next for QorIQ - Portfolio and Roadmap.pdf ( https://community.nxp.com/docs/DOC-331653 )
According to pages 11 and 13, we are currently have roadmaps both Power-based and ARM-based solutions.
I'm not aware about any plans to stop producing new Power Architecture processors, but as you can see the next Power-based processor is not announced for this moment.
Currently, we offer ARM products for Mid-performance and Low-power networking product segments, Power-based solutions for High-performance networking segment."

The most recent info I have seen is the vague "next gen" info shown here: (16Mar2016, page8)
https://freescale.jiveon.com/docs/DOC-330317

They just indicate there will be some new chips with Power Architecture core, so PPC should remain available, at least. Not sure if we see new core after e6500. No info yet what Qualcomm wants to do with NXP & PPC.

(and not seen low-end Power8/9/10 clones announced yet either)

UPDATE:
LS3xxxP (and LS3xxxA) chips were planned to appear in 2016 but not released yet.
