What do you think about quad core cortex-A9 1GHz vs dual core cortex-A15 1.7
I saw 2 boards :
* Freescale IMX6 SABRE-LITE : quad cortex-A9 1GHz - 1 GB DDR3
* ARMBRIX-5250-A : dual cortex A15 1.7 GHz - 2 GB DDR3
I guess dual cortex-A15 is better compared to quad cortex-A9? (For desktop
Any experience using this kind of boards?
If I was to recommend either of these boards it would be for the
ARMBRIX. It is essentially a lower cost Arndale board, and as it is
A15 it supports virtualisation and is much more capable for
development purposes. It should also have better upstream support than
the IMX6. Unfortunately Freescale is focussing more on the IVI segment
than general compute/server/mobile space so I'm not 100% sure on how
well their upstream support is/will be. The ARMBRIX will also enable
people to leverage OpenCL/GPGPU compute should they want it.
So, go for the ARMBRIX if you can ;)
Thank you guys for all your feedbacks.
Not sure about ARMBRIX availability. I sent them an e-mail to know because their site is
telling: "12 weeks after closing each batch".
