Today AppliedMicro started offering two discounted AppliedMicro X-Gene developer kits at discounted prices. For those not familiar with AppliedMicro, they are one of the leading companies in the ARMv8 field with 64-bit ARM offerings finding design wins in platforms such as the HP Moonshot. The two systems both have 8-core X-Gene ARM processors. The X-C1 Development Kit Basic is a very stripped down version of the platform that runs at 1.6GHz clock speed. The X-C1 Development Kit Plus is $500 more (discounted pricing) but is essentially a complete system.

  1. Think you can put these in a rackmount 1U?

    Any idea what the 10 gig is? Just SFP+? Compatibility?

    I’m awaiting your benchmarks.
