If you want to know more about BIG.little architecture, the wiki is quite good

And that not exactly as quote as the A80 is a big.LITTLE HMP (GTS)
So, the 8 cores should be usable...

If it was a MP arch, low power will use A7, high power will use A15 like if we got 2x4-cores...and won't use it alltogether.

I got mine with shipping in 4 days via normal post.

Hi Slovenia,

Please, keep us informed how it goes and how open it is and how stable is with a "new fresh img compiled with the SDK".

must add 15/25€ for shipping.

waiting best deal.

So how are the open-source drivers for the "PowerVR G6230" comming along... wait don't tell me you don't have any and it's going to be another useless GPU. that doesn't run very well under linux or offers no usable  Hardware accelerated decoding on Linux like the A20's Mali.  Also anything above $130(not €) is too much based on these specs

We also think pricing for embedded boards like the Cubieboard 4 are too high. We see the same happen for the new FireFly RK3288.  If possible we will lower our selling price.

The first new batch should be available in Europe second half january 2015

Now i'm considering another low power and inexpensive alternatives  like  minix z64, zotac PI320,  or zotac ci320.

The ci320 is a like Dream,  sata, usb3, wifi, bt4 , gigabit, IR , up  to 8gb Ram, win8 / linux, etc

May be intel Z3735F or intel N2930 its more powerfull  than  A80?

Yeap, they look very good, although prices are very similar...   :)
But I don't know if people here would choose Windows over Linux... :-\

Really? when i read that i don't feel interested:
"GPU is Imagination : no GPU support in linux.
VPU has not 265/HEVC capability ...."

The Cubietruck was priced correctly for what it was.   At $150, these new A80 boards are double the price of an Intel J1900 board.  For the most part, if it's Intel it's probably well supported with drivers and therefore Linux distributions.   If the builders like Cubie expect to sell any of these, they better get the price down to somewhere below $100 or people will just go either with a RasPi on the cheap side or with an Intel or AMD board on the high side.  And if the new A80 boards don't have a stable stock Android build out of the box, well that will be unforgivable.  Lack of a stable Android release for A20 was the main reason I sold my Cubietruck.
