In your previous thread you mentioned Intel could give you a firm production schedule in January. Did you have any luck with that or is the next production run still in limbo?

Odroid stated March somewhere on the forum, not sure how solid that is currently.

Back in november:

"we have a very SMALL problem"

Now we're 4 months in, february, and they still have no exact date - let alone units.

I guess the MSI CEO wasn't kidding expecting the supply shortage to take the whole of 2019.

I hope Hardkernel switches to AMD the next time they'll consider an x86 SBC.

Edit:

Intel CEO confirms tight supply till at least mid 2019:

So I guess end of 2019 is confirmed (not related to H2 but overall supply).

I started coming the forums to see if there is anybody in the EU that is selling theirs. I already missed 2 opportunities, even if the case was not the one that I wanted (Case Type 1).

If you think AMD would be a better choice I urge you to check out the Udoo Bolt and its delays :)
I don't think anyone could have predicted there would be an Intel shortage

I don't know for sure, but I get the impression that the Udoo Bolt's delays are not from AMD shortages. They seem to have some project management/planning issues, not to speak of their very poor communication to their supporters. I would love to see a AMD 2400G or even 2200G Odroid! Please...H3??

I agree, or as an H2 Pro.

In the 2200G/2400G space there is now the Asrock DeskMini A300 (https://www.asrock.com/nettop/AMD/DeskM ... /index.asp), launch in a few days.
But this is getting off-topic..

Yea well ... to be bought ... nowhere like most Mainboards and x86 SBCs in this form factor. B2B only. But hey ...

Hardkernel managed to fall into this spot as well and I guess its more or less the fault of both Intel and AMD that they both dont support / give B2C models any room to breath for whatever reason ...

That said I find the silence from Hardkernel a bit discouraging. Looking that they initially said they'd get an firm schedule from Intel in January.

The Intel-based DeskMini 110/310 series is widely available just like any other consumer PC hardware.
The AMD-based A300 is brand new and not-yet available.
See the attached photos, a DeskMini compared to a H2 in size.
With the DeskMini series you get mainboard+nice case+power supply. So this SFF PC market is taken, with Asrock's economics of scale and distribution network that Hardkernel hardly can match. For Hardkernel to theoretically make an AMD-based product it can only go for smaller/weaker/cheaper than the DeskMinis, questions is what market is there?

I have 2 Deskminis and an Odroid XU4, I've opted away from using the second deskmini as a NAS for several reasons and will be selling it. First it is actively cooled. Second it does not support 3.5 HDDs. Third it has a much larger power draw than an ARM based SBC or the H2. Friendlyarm just released a SATA HAT for their nanopi M4 and I'm very torn between getting that and waiting for the H2.

If you need it within the next 3+ months I wouldn't wait (speculation).
