Mouser seems to have stock – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/IBASE/MI988F-1202?qs=%2fha2pyFaduj1ZT7kq9fsBlQX%2fJS4lhE4LjiodokMT3e5Zd1St6zkrA==
Not cheap at $546 for the -1202
The -1756 is $654 – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/IBASE/MI988F-1756?qs=%2fha2pyFaduj1ZT7kq9fsBrBnJdUUM5j68Ao8UsdwHmX6NGWsJ%252bs5kg%3d%3d
Finally the -1807 is $742 – https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/IBASE/MI988F-1807?qs=%2fha2pyFaduj1ZT7kq9fsBnhkQOQsqq%252bJ25T1T%2f3mmltZKqZpHtDh%2fA%3d%3d

You must have some very specific requirements to be willing to pay those kind of prices, as the Ryzen V1000 isn’t that amazing. It’s not even as if iBase has put 10Gbps Ethernet on the boards. I can think of a lot better products to spend that kind of money on.

4 RS232 should tell you plenty about their customers and why those boards are actually pretty cheap all things considered.

It’s actually six, but hey, who’s counting anyhow.
I guess your opinion of cheap is different to mine then…

Well, it could be “cheap” for some embedded markets if it’s long-term-supported, reliable (i.e. no “CMOS checksum error, press F1 to continue”), durable (solid capacitors, thermal grease not turning to powder after 3 years), robust to temperature abuses (60°C ambient is good) and vibrations. But seeing a low-end fan on the CPU’s heatsink that will barely resist to dust for one year if used outside of a datacenter room doesn’t make me feel very confident about these use cases and the CPU might end up throttling very quickly.

AMD’s fans are all good nowadays since the CPU will throttle down if heat builds up far more aggressively than previous years’ SoCs/CPUs and the fan manufacturer were told this in advance.
