@suetanvil It'll be higher, $140.

Still, damn cheap for a computer, especially one advancing the RISC-V space.

Interesting approach. I'm a big fan of the idea of not putting things in too big companies, and I'm always curious to see people implement ideas among the lines of Monty Widenius and Richard Branson, and splitting things up before they get too big. Small autonomous orgs achieve more.
TIL there is a #RiscV #PineCone by @PINE64

The new BeagleV (pronounced "Beagle Five") system features a dual-core, 1GHz RISC-V CPU.

Whow, considering the U74 is equivalent to ARM A72 so it is like a raspberrypi with half of the cores ..... Hopefully it will be really affordable ....

But it is nevertheless a great news to see that something is moving.


Interesting, but still quite more expensive than a Rasberry Pi.
So a very good news for hobbyists and Open Harware enthusiasts indeed, but not ready for mass adoption alas.
Would you have any ressource about the security model that this could bring ?
Obviously open hardware is the first brick to build a genuine security upon, but how to actually prevent supply-chain poisoning for example ?
