    The X2000 is XBurst 2 based, not XBurst 1

      Looks like shit.
      Seems like RISC-V or ARM would be a better choice any day.

        RISCV is still vaporware, mips32r5 or mips64r5 are very good options, and they deliver.
        A shame that no one is producing in silicon this parts, its also an open arch now..

          Why? I don't like this SoC either. But please elaborate?

            I think MIPS can be any good option when ARM is so popular and there are so many ARM boards.

            MIPS is not open source, they once claimed they would and made an announcement that it is open source, later they backtracked and said it is not.

            Because this is shit, its like a blast from the past, it has LPDDR2, its super old. There are many ARM boards that are much more modern and the toolchain for ARM is more proven than MIPS.

              Shit shit shit, until you realize MIPS' only usefulness is when they feel like starting World War III and Russia/China require devices not engineered in the Western.

              Oh wait never mind, MIPS is American....

                MIPS processors are still manufactured in Taiwan just like everything else.

                  Actually MIPS right now, is Chinese

                  When MIPS was in bankruptcy, a Chinese fund brought it back..
                  This fund is owned at 100% by SMC, a Chinese fab based in China mainland, that aims to compete with TSMC( another Chinese fab based in Taiwan.. )..

                  But yes Russia owns a License, in any case they have several derivatives from mips.

                  But I thinkImagination Technologies, make a wonderful Job...
                  And the new revamped MIPS arch, is a arch from the recent days, that starts with mipsXXr5( and above until r7 ), i believe

                  In many cases, we should have a world with a lot of development boards with this new arch, but intead everybody goes ARM( because its the trend now.. ).
                  I am still struggling to get a mips32r5 board, and also the Loongson 3A4000( its the last big arch produced in Europe, without accounting Elbrus from Russia and others.. )
