Interest Check

Post by arschkrampe »

Hello fellows!

I am a long-time, very satisfied user of three H2+ and four H3+ devices.

However, there is one thing I would still like to see, and that is support for ECC RAM in combination with an Intel CPU. This would be the crowning glory of this great product line.

I am aware that in order to fulfill this wish, an upgrade to a CPU with ECC
support and that this will increase the purchase price.

But I believe this would fulfill a heart's desire for many home lab enthusiasts.

What do you think?
Please share your opinion to show Hardkernel the demand.

Many thanks and best regards,
Frank

I think only Intel Xeon CPUs support ECC, at least from Intel.
A Xeon SBC is completely unfeasible, as these CPUs typically have 50-150W TDP. Not to mention ridiculous price.

EDIT: That's just my opinion, but ECC is a fringe functionality anyway. Billions of machines around the world don't use ECC and still work fine.

Thanks for your input @mctom.

That is a mistake. ATOM, Celeron, Pentium and Core-i CPUs also support ECC RAM, although not all do.

Indeed you're right, here's the complete list:
https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en ... emory=True

Now sorting by TDP, the lowest one is 15W, 50% more than N6005 found in H3+.
And recommended price over $300.

I think Odroid H series are based on mobile/tablet SoCs, and those are unlikely to offer ECC. :(

I don't see a 50% higher TDP as critical, but the price, as mentioned in my initial post, could definitely be the deciding factor for lack of interest.
