Well i guess not November for me.... They just announced the 8 GB early bird, shipping in December.  Originally that was only going to be an option on the 'release' boards.

Everyone is changing their pledge, everyone wanted 8 GB instead of 4, but none of us wanted to wait 8 months.. its already been over a year..

Cool, looks like both my RK3588 that i reserved back in early January, and the v2 Risc-V may arrive about the same time. Merry Xmas for me.

I was doing stuff in the late 80s and early 90s on the plant floor
with 8031s, its amazing how far that world has come. Both in
power/features and they are basically throwaway cost now.  I

Even the simplest of terminals needs a microprocessor. I fondly recall the Z-19 (or H-19) terminal, and it is so weird to know (now, as I did not know then) that the terminal used the same Z-80 processor as the CP/M machine to which it was attached.

This could fall under "rant" or "stupid things i did this week":

 

 

Man i wish i was not an idiot. New RK3588 box came out. I ran over to order it on Tuesday. it shipped next day. To arrive next Monday.  Went to download the drivers and stuff ahead of time, *wait, its a RK3399 ?!?!?!*  i got the wrong model number and bought the previous chip.. arrgh.   Nothing wrong with an RK3399 and i have always liked the chip but i have 3.. ( not including 3 laptops.. ).

Rumor is that Samsung may buy ARM.  If they do, now you know why NVIDIA didnt get it. Politics. 

I think that i would rather have seen NVIDIA get it than Samsung.

it arrived the next day..  And to make it worse, apparently i overpaid by about 40 bucks.

( but trying to ship a single item back to china.. not worth the cost )

I take it back. only 20 bucks, the shipping price.  ( amazon price i saw was for the non-pro, pro is ~20 bucks more, which is about right )

Still annoys the hell out of me, buying something i dont want or need.  I stopped buying 'toys/dust collectors'.
