I ordered Odroid U3 too. :)
The network bandwidth will be a bottleneck as well (because it's also 100M),
but we will be able to use more complex shader and model with it.

Might have to upgrade to the XU(2) with the USB3 to GBit Ethernet to cope with the bottleneck, but the U2 is a good start.


Kind Regards,

Ah thanks Julian! I had just started to think about that bandwidth question.

How about using a dedicated USB to Ethernet adapter just for the graphics? and wire it directly?

Or we could use the onboard Ethernet and then use the USB adapter for other Ethernet traffic.

I know it won't be as good as Gigabit, but it's a halfway house.


Kind Regards,

I have found a USB2 to Gigabit Ethernet adapter. This should give up to 480Mb/s throughput. All we need now is to see if we need drivers or if it works out of the box.

Is this enough???

That's a good idea, but the program may become complex.
I am also interested in UDOO Quad, it has a gigabit ethernet, Vivante GC2000 GPU, and SATA.
However, it is a bit expensive ($135), and I don't know whether it supports OpenGL ES 2.0 on normal linux.

I suppose the adapter can only gain less than 100Mbps in actuality.
But, I'll try with ASIX AX88179 chip USB 3.0/2.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter.

I have found this:

The LCD8000-97CLCD8000-97C is a portable 9.7” LVDS display module with capacitive multi-touch* interface for SABRE LiteSABRE Lite and MarS BoardMarS Board, featuring the Freescale’s powerful i.MX 6 ARM Cortex-A9 Quad & Dual Core multimedia application processors respectively. The display module integrates a capacitive multi-touch screen with an LVDS interface and supports the resolution of 1024×768 with 262K colors to provide an excellent & smooth touch interface experience.

The SABRE LiteSABRE Lite is a development board for i.MX 6Quad built to Freescale® SABRE LiteSABRE Lite design is a low-cost development platform based on Freescale’s i.MX 6Quad processor based on ARM Cortex-A9 architecture which encompasses a quad-core platform running up to 1 GHz with 1 MB of L2 cache and 64-bit DDR3 or 2-ch., 32-bit LPDDR2 support. Integrated FlexCAN, MLB busses, PCI Express® and SATA-2 provide excellent connectivity, while integration of LVDS, MIPI display port, MIPI camera port and HDMI v1.4.

Not sure, but might be useful, just a tad expensive.

MarS Board looks good too.
Gigabit Ethernet, Vivante GC2000, $99

Hi Shodruk,

Have yo got your U3? and have you managed to get it to work with OpenGL ES 2.0?

Do we need to start a new thread for the U3?


Kind Regards,


Julian.

Yes it has arrived. I've also got an ASIX AX88179 chip USB 3.0 Ethernet adapter.
But I'm busy for now to build my new project for Parallella. ;)
I'm going to port gl-server to Odroid-U3 after that.
