    1. Nvidia seems to want to charge an insane premium for their modules. This isn’t limited to AAEON, as I’ve gotten prices from some other Nvidia partners that are in the same ballpark.

  1. I will not post a link as they get deleted, however the Jetson TX2 Development kit is only $569.99 on Amazon.com. So the price of the Boxer board seems a massive mark up in price?

      1. For 1/3 of the price you have a MacchiatoBin with 2x10G, 1×2.5G and 1x1G and an SoC made of four 2.0 GHz A72 cores.
