      I have AM1M-A here, micro atx variant - it is quite close, maybe there is love chance for that too

        I was using a MSI board with a Athlon 5150 last month. It still is a surprising functional system for internet/office work. Too bad AMD had given up on the platform to focus on more profitable stuff.

          I have ASUS AM1M-A just one letter diff micro atx variant.

          Even libre kernel works no problem if you use fglrx True, but joke aside, if it have coreboot support and some nouveau card it is total free

          Jaguar CPUs for that does not have PSP also, so full freedom is near possible

            Well, Intel keep releasing in that segment... now Goldmont Plus or Gemini Lake is hot news.

              True, but their GPU sucks compared to AMD's. I regret not had bought the 5370 model, because now people are asking crazy money for a used one.

                I have Athlon 5350 overclocked to speed of 5370 stock, it is runing like that since begining no problem

                Back in 2014. these Bay Trail GPU sucked in comparison, but now in 2018. what i see with these 18EU at least on that Pentium Silver J5005 model might be even double faster than that Kabini... well probably even a bit more than double considering faster CPU and additional speed boost coming from DDR4

                  The CPU part sure, Atoms are faster, but the GPUs... And at the prices DDR4 are these days, completely defeats the purpose of those cheap SoC.

                    I have a similar setup as a productive system. It works fairly well. Of course it's not a huge numbercruncher, but it was never meant to be one. It's a good HTPC, SOHO server thingy, perfect for everything but computing / GPU intensive workloads.
                    Add an SSD and you got a nice machine for work. Besides it's a very affordable platform. Even CPU power is fairly well, also considering the overall power consumption. Compiles LibreOffice with my settings in roughly 5,5 hours. Fair deal for a little machine.

                    Coreboot is also supposed to be working on Biostar brethren of this one. Here you also have a socketed flash chip which is a good precaution for Coreboot experiments. I'd gladly see Michael give it a go!
                    Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
