Beagleboard.org 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.

last time I got this excited about a board was back in 2008.. Sigh.. https://nishanthmenon.blogspot.com/2008/04/dreamer-dream-on.html
> 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 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
