Follow announces beagle with RISC_V :) EXCITING!!!
119$ for 4GB and 149$ for 8GB -> Awesome!

Working with Seeed and StarFive, BeagleBoard is releasing a RISC-V board to help advance the development of open source software for the RISC-V open ISA. You might see announcements today.

Be sure to register interest on that site because the early board release is very limited.

@nm @xj9 do you think that this will be powerful enough to run a video chat of some kind, or is the hardware insufficiently powerful/mature?

@Orwelldonesteak @nm

> RISC-V U74 Dual core with 2MB L2 cache @ 1.0GHz
> Vision DSP Tensilica-VP6 for computing vision
> NVDLA Engine 1 core (configuration 2048 MACs@800MHz )
> Neural Network Engine (1024MACs@500MHz)
> Video Decoder (H264/H265) up to 4K@60FPS; Support Dual stream decoding for 2K@30FPS each

depends on how the video chat is designed. it could probably handle muxing just fine, but re-coding might be too much to ask.

@xj9 @nm so like, it would handle a live stream? Or it WOULDNT handle a live stream? Sorry I know very little about this

@Orwelldonesteak @nm

it only has hardware decoding, but one-to-many broadcast is cheaper than what i was thinking (video conference chat)

@xj9 @nm ok thanks. My dream is to set up a big screen TV in my living room with HDMI going to a SBC that boots into jitsi/zoom/whatever so that I can do video calls ala The Federation Starship Enterprise. All the systems able to handle that kind of use case are larger/more expensive than I want though.

Oh well, l’ll keep looking
