Wait, what? they have 2 power-managment silicon bugs, which they refuse to fix? Holy shit.
And yes, 2x weaker gpu and slightly better (but still shitty 4 cpu cores) doesn’t make it better. Looks like I will need to put my L5 Fir batch order to later batch. I really don’t want a piece of shit SoC.
Whoa. RK3588 looks really promising. I just hope, that transition would be smooth. I am worried about driver support of Arm Mali “Odin” MP4 GPU.
Personally, in ideal case I would want that Purism collaborates with many similar thinking organizations (such as Raspberry pi foundation (which expressed a wish for binary blob free RPi)) to slap together a good RISC-V mobile SoC, with help of Sifive or similar company. In that way they would have saying not to put IP in, which requires proprietary drivers to work. Just think about it. In that way Purism could reduce separate chips on the board and not reverse engineer proprietary drivers.
