I'd like to see AMD use this to compete with Intel's NUC systems.

I don't know why Zotac with all their tiny systems hasn't made a more powerful AMD based one. I'd make my own but FM2 ITX boards are extremely rare (Isn't the compact, integrated, format the point of these?) and I haven't yet seen any with msata.

I wish AMD the best with this platform, it actually sounds realistic, and I like the fact that they're giving Linux attention. I just hope that these are actual dual cores, not single-cores with 2 modules (same goes for the quad core). AMD should do the same for their FX-4XXX series - I'm sure it'd get a noticeable performance improvement if it were 4 physical cores rather than 2 cores per module.

It's already possible to buy a last-generation G-series-based development board on the open market: the Gizmo. I've got a couple here: very compact, surprisingly powerful (about 1/20th the single-core performance of my A10-5800K, or 5x the performance of a Raspberry Pi, using the SysBench CPU benchmark and ignoring the GPU) and includes one on-board SATA port and another that can be accessed using a "high-speed port" on the edge of the device - but you'll have to build an adapter to get at that one.

It's Jaguar, which means updated Bobcat - which means the traditional module approach, using two integer units fused to one shared 256-bit FMAC that can operate in 2x128-bit mode as and when required. In other words: if you think AMD's existing processors aren't 'real' dual/quad core parts, then this ain't going to change your mind.

I remember that from the January (link). That fell a little short and the cost was too high. I'm currently looking at funding this: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...y-single-board but that might be a little too DIY for the time I have available.

I'd still like an FM2 ITX (or smaller) board with msata, HDCP HDMI / DisplayPort / DVI, USB3 ...
