"To put that into perspective, the SoC is packed with a mind-blowing 192 cores..." Just 192 cores? Couldn't they pack any more?...LOL...just kidding. Could not believe that RS232 had still got a chance to exist on the Nvidia SBC. Interesting to see that Raspberry Pi has found its place in the super-computer as well!

Little giants indeed. We got the idea for this story when Nvidia briefed us on the $192/192-core Jetson TK1, which the company calls the world's first embedded supercomputer, because it uses Nvidia's Kepler core used in supercomputers.  Now I need to get them to give me a free sample of the kit so I can give it away to an engineer on EE Times.

Give one to the creaters of LTSPICE, GNUCAP, NGSPICE, and TINA respectively -- there is big pent-up demand for an in-expensive SPICE accellerator for the Free Versions of SPICE.

Thanks for the tip, MS243. (though at $192, they could probably afford to purchase one), it could be an interesting story. Send me any contact links/emails if you know of them. Thanks.

At only a buck a core, who wouldn't want one.  I may have to look into it since I always say I need a Cray.  Now so many choices.

It's not an SBC but if i wanted to smash numbers a GPU board would be better, the nVidia Titan z has 5760 cores for 3000$, that's a little more than 50 cents a core, WIHTOUT all the hastle of dealing with a bunch of SBCs. Infact you can put 2 Titan Zs in a regular mid tower or even mini-atx on your desktop and DONE, almost 12,000 cores at your disposal for about 6K$, THAT would be home brew super computing, not a bunch of SBCs with a zillian ports you don't need and taking up valuable space, however it would look kool.

@silver5#!+

Amazing how stupid spamsters still try to sneak their malware garbage in under the transparent pretense of a legitimate comment.

MALWARE Alert! Do not view the 3 posts from silverprotect and melda1980.

The 2nd two posts triggered a malware detect by eetimes, and even though I did not go to any of the posted websites, my own Bit Defender has just reported an "infected file detected".
