Parallella Desktop Computer Board Price Drops to $99 (Temporary)

Parallella “super computer” board with Xilinx Zynq-7010 ARM+FPGA SoC and Adapteva’s 16-core Epiphany coprocessor may have started at $99 uring their Kickstarter campaign, but once the board became more broadly available, price started at $119 for the microserver version, and $149 for the desktop computer version which adds a micro HDMI port, a micro USB port, and some expansion I/Os. But to get rid of some stock, the company has decided to temporary decrease the desktop version price to $99 on Amazon.

  1. I checked a few sites, but I couldn’t an answer: is there any ready-to-use software that uses the 16 cores of the Parallella board? For example ‘unrar’ or some other software that can do parallel processing?

    Ha, they include a fully sized heatsink. It’s now official the original one was undersized. I’d love to buy just that heatsink …

    not only this new larger heatsink…also a fan on it is highly recommended.

  3. @Jibril
    Even with such a large heat sink ? The tiny one they gave at the last minute required a fan for sure. I hoped that having a full sized heat sink would cancel the need for a fan.
