(El Reg): Upstart RISC processor and coprocessor designer Adapteva is shipping the first of its Parallella system boards, which its Epiphany multicore processors with ARM processors to create a spunky and reasonably peppy hybrid compute engine that doesn’t cost much and is very energy efficient for certain kinds of processing. It is not cheap to [...]

A good “second board” for learning 0

(LINUX MAGAZINE): It is not often that I point to a specific product, slap my forehead and make a snap buying decision.  It is even less common for me to pay for something I know I will not get for a couple of months, but last night a friend of mine, Lucas Teske wrote to [...]

Build your own supercomputer: First $99 Parallella boards ship 0

(ZDNET): Linux is the top supercomputer operating system. But while you can build your own Linux supercomputer using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products, even with just Raspberry Pi boards,  these don’t natively support massively parallel computing — the cornerstone of modern supercomputing. That’s where Adapteva, with its $99 Parallella parallel processing single-board supercomputer, comes in. FULL ARTICLE
