Whatever it comes out at i would say it will probably be good value anyway. Still i have been toying with going intel next time simply for .the inclusion of SaTA out of the box. Some of the good chineses minipcs are coming in at about €130 which makes them good value.
We don’t know yet. But wrxtasy said he is able to play 1080p NF with a slightly overclocked Odroid C2. The cpu on the N2 is 30% faster and the passive cooling is superb. Also we have the possibility to overclock already.
How long would you say before there is a stable build for the N2? My C2 seems to have packed it in and I now have the dilemma of waiting for the N2 to be available, and for a stable build to come out, or just pick up another C2… First world problems!
We don’t have any projections. I hope that we can make something (not necessarily stable) available by the time the N2 ships in April, but we can’t guarantee anything at this point, since we only just started working on it a few days ago.
It’s looking promising. We have a working build already. There are still a lot of issues but basic stuff works like GUI, SW decoding, CEC, and some HW decoding. @shanti also tested some of the retrogame stuff and it’s impressive. A lot of people on the Team got a N2 so people are motivated to get it to work properly.
But we will probably encounter a lot of issues we don’t know yet.
