"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 $192/192-core Jetson TK1, which the company calls the world's first embedded supercomputer, because it uses Nvidia's Kepler core used in supercomputers. Now I need to get them to give me a free sample of the kit so I can give it away to an engineer on EE Times.
It's not an SBC but if i wanted to smash numbers a GPU board would be better, the nVidia Titan z has 5760 cores for 3000$, 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.
