More Ram!!

Unread postby UglyBob » Mon Aug 29, 2016 8:00 pm

Hello,

Thank you for your time.

Apologies if this has been answered already, but is there any drive to get more ram in some of the ODROID devices? in particular would love to be able to buy a ODROID-XU4 with 4 or even 8 gig ram! ok maybe 8gig is an overkill but believe this could be a good idea for any upcoming devices or refresh of some of the older models

Thanks very much once again

All current Odroid products have the maximum amount of memory supported by the System On Chip (SoC) used. There is no way to add more. Supporting extra memory requires a new SoC. When new SoCs are available, the amount of RAM is increased as was seen in going from C1 with 1GB to C2 with 2GB.

Anyhow, a future Odroid (maybe seen in 2018? ;) ;) ;) ) which will have 8GB of RAM, a 64bit-architecture, and USB3 or even SATA3-ports, will be good enough even for private photo editing at home. Darktable is said to run natively on 64bit ARM & Linux since 24.XII.2016. The bottleneck is the 2GB RAM of contemporary Odroids, which is not yet sufficient for photo editing with DT.
