    Phoronix: AAEON EMB-BT1: A Linux-Friendly, Mini-ITX, Atom "Bay Trail" Board

    For those after a low-cost mini-ITX board for use within an HTPC, SOHO file server, or other low-power situations, AAEON has out an interesting board called the EMB-BT1, or more formally the AAEON EMB-BT1-A10-3825. This mini-ITX motherboard has onboard an Intel Atom E3825 "Bay Trail" SoC for delivering decent performance out of the six Watt SoC and having open-source-friendly graphics under Linux.

    Would like to see some information regarding availability, specifically international (i.e. non-US) availability. I've read with interest the other similar articles (such as the Kabini), only to see talk of newegg availability and rebates, which are US-centric availability notions. Given that I'm in Europe, probably like a sizeable proportion of your readership, I'd like to know whether I can get my hands on this board without having to fire up Google.

      Kaprikawn, see AAEON's global offices: http://www.aaeon.com/en/contact/?pin...767e192ce8e327

      Pick the office closest to you and give them a ring and they will be able to provide you with costs and where to buy the boards. I can tell you AAEON has some inventory levels right now, so lead time will be 1~2 weeks.

          ditto

          Also, Michael, since you are running ubuntu 14.04 could you post output of command
          Code:
          cryptsetup benchmar
          ?

          I wonder what is encryption performance (handy with home NAS scenario) of this CPU since it's the first ATOM with AES-NI

          Thanks.

            This is the first Bay Trail vs Kabini benchmark I've seen. Is the relative performance between this new Atom and the new Kabini cores similar to other benchmarks eleswhere? I thought Bay Trail was supposed to do better than this.

              That mirrors quite well what I've seen elsewhere on the cpu side of things at least. Silvermont core seems to be about 20% or so slower per clock for general integer performance, and worse on the FPU/SIMD side (the SIMD cluster still is mostly in-order even).
              Kabini has definitely quite a bit faster GPU though (even the low-clocked variants), but the open-source radeonsi driver apparently isn't that well optimized yet (which you can clearly see from other benchmarks with GCN chips).

                If someone is interested to compare (mainly aimed for server needs), here is most powerfull PC Kabini to date tested on Linux - socketed Athlon 5350:

                http://www.servethehome.com/Workstat...hmarks-review/

                and also just lower CPU clocked model Athlon 5150 is also tested:

                i think tomorow Sempron 3850 benchmarks will appear, etc.

                But of course i would mostly like to have GL performance tested on Linux that would be

                  E1-2100 comparison

                  It sure would be nice to see the catalyst driver in the Kabini vs. Atom graphics comparison.

                    the true shock is seeing kaveri outperform the i3 4130 in several tests- i would love to have a deeper look at is since i'm in the process of getting one of these exact 2 models.
