eeeee... Some time ago I asked about new project and they said that there is no plan to create new board so I bought XU.
I would wait some time to get new board...

Yes, I know that :) but now I think it's better to have a bit older board but with better support :)

Since the XU2 is not a secret anymore, is it possible to release some specs (e.g. 2 or 3 GB RAM)?

My Bad. I was slightly confused because in the CNXSoft article he was not sure if the XU2 has 2 or 3GB RAM...

Same as XU with a lower speed SoC. (200Mhz less on the A15's)

For those desperate to have a 5420 dev board (with all 8 cores available on-demand) see:-

http://liliputing.com/2013/11/179-arnda ... essor.html

and http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... LrSTJECVaU for how it should work.

Interesting thing is,based on benchmark,the new mali t628 on exynos5420 is yet slower that new iphones PowerVR series 6 GPU by 8% and slower that Adreno 330 by 11%.
I'd expected a significant boost over 5410,and that is come,but not so huge to pass the others 2 GPU beast on the market.I'm waiting my nexus 5 to arrive,curious to stretch it with tweaks and benchmarks to see.
Anyways the 3GB of ram,overcome,IMHO the little difference in GPU performance.I'd prefer one more Gb of Ram,and most important at higher rate with same type (LPDDR3 too at 19xx where on XU we have 1800)and have a little slowerGPU (which we can at least overclock by a long range lik we did on mali 400MP4 in U2\X2 until 800mhz)
I'll wait for XU-2 from HardKernel...so much better support from company rather than Arndale.

So now that it has been 3 months, I am curious how this new product is coming along.
Do you think you might be able to start taking pre-orders next month?
Would this new model be almost identical to the current XU? Or would there be changes to some of the ports?
Would it support basically the same accessories? In particular, will the UART still be 1.8V?

If we make any board based on current exynos chips.. it will be 1.8V.. that's the logic level that it works.
Nowdays all SoC's are lowering logic levels to reduce power consumption.

I think we'll probably see a new board on Q2.. not easy to tell :)

Arndale board has SATA, but I'm not sure if it's built into the 5420 or just through USB3.

Not near as much community support for the Arndale, though, and it's more expensive. ODROID for life.

There's two Arndales...

one with 5250 that has SATA and one with 5420 that doesn't.
Guess why one has and the other doesnt.

Anyone know if the exynos 5422 4gb fits into existing 5420 products? The last time chromebooks got an exynos cpu they had a different SoC without the PoP ram on top.

Hi guys,

Is there any news on an XU2? Any idea about a release date? I see there is now a note on the XU product page stating "ODROID-XU will be discontinued in Q3 2014" I am really looking forward to getting the XU but would much rather wait for the XU2.

Thanks

Will the XU2 feature Linux X11 drivers for 2D acceleration and OpenGL(ES)?
I also hope the current XU will get these before support ends :(

If the next board runs with ARM GPU (aka. Mali) yes.. On the release date.

So it depends which GPU will be packed inside the Exynos 5420.
The Mali and Adreno GPU have linux drivers available, but I think Adreno is only used in Snapdragon SOCs.

So what about the current XU, It features a PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU which currently only have drivers available for Android.
You said you MIGHT expect something in the near future, so does it mean Samsung and/or PowerVR do have drivers available for Linux?
Or does it mean we will get PowerVR GPU docs under NDA?
Because writing Linux kernel and X11 GPU drivers is not something you can do within a month.

Any updates on that?

Something like "No there will not be a Linux X11 driver for the PowerVR" is also an answer ;)
There was some work going on here: http://listas.gnu.org.ve/pipermail/powe ... 00036.html

Let's hope the XU2 will feature the Mali GPU instead :)

Of course it has the Mali GPU if they are using Exynos 5420. (or 5422)
