Well, not all news are bad. This one in particular is a very good news.

1 x HDMI 1.4 support up to 1080P@60fps

That’s a bit disappointing.

I think the key term you’re looking at is “affordable” :slight_smile:

It can decode 4K@60 but it can only output 1080p. :face_with_monocle:

Clearly it is not targeted at the media center crowd.

Was what might have tempted me.

its not so affordable if its not for sale yet??? production doesnt begin until sept 2021.

Is only dual core 1 ghz so it is not for me.

Let’s see the bigger picture. A true libre platform.
Let’s support this and grow from there. I know that I am looking for an affordable ARM desktop for ages, as a substitute for AMD or Intel, just to have a platform without Intel Management Engine or AMD’s PSP.

thanks to apple amd is reviving their arm based chip

i could go on for hours on that topic. To what extent, to reiterate the same, that companies are not your friend and users are nowhere free and almost all hardware parts are spying on you, in one way or another.

Yeah, but that’s not running an Electron-based application - that’s only rocket science.
