Good to see it has a PCIe slot.  I was unable to see that through the back of the case I saw it in.

Almost had me but the board is quite crippled. Not much upgrading going on there.

700 to 1200 is too random. I suspect it will be 1200.... and then we don't know if the price is for just the board, or a complete computer. But nonetheless, it is interesting, although I would have preferred a single core CPU with more hz, than a dual core with only 1 being supported by the OS.

Been expecting this one.
As for being "crippled", its got better specs than a SAM460.

@Iggy

exactly. my hope is that i can use this as a replacement for my pegasos2. since my X5K will eventually be able to dual-boot AOS4 and MOS, i'll be able to get rid of my peg2 and also have this board as something nice, small, and portable. maybe stuff it into a A500 case (and use A1200 keyboard+keyrah), even.

Try to emulate the FPU in software, and you might end up with interesting results :)
I see the jimmies have been rustled.

I am not that worried. If it has the processor I suspect it has, it will vastly outperform the AMCC cpu used in the SAM460.
