    Phoronix: A New MIPS Creator CI20 Is Running Much Better

    Last month I wrote about trying to benchmark the MIPS Creator CI20, a low-cost MIPS development board from Imagination Technologies, but sadly those plans were thwarted by stability issues. Fortunately, it was just a faulty board and the replacement board has been running without any faults.

    Meh, I would like to see a RISC-V board.
    Why go with a MIPS board?
    Nobody supports MIPS, and Ubuntu and Fedora supports ARM.

      Fedora has MIPS for the CI20 in testing - http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...-MIPS-Test-Out

      There's also other distros with MIPS.

        I wonder how these [new] MIPS run compared to the "old" SGI era's version in terms of pure performance as I'm guessing a much better flops/watt ratio.

          Another thing forgot to mention in the article... Unfortunately the CI20's stock kernel doesn't ship with USB serial support so am unable to do any perf-per-Watt/power consumption benchmarks so far due to not being able to poll my AC power meter.

            I'd be interested to see how this compares to Raspberry Pi or Pandaboard.

              here's a comparison between the ci20 and rpi2:

                Thanks for the link! It's quite revealing. Not that I would touch anything with a PowerVR graphics in it anyway. But it's good to know that I won't sacrifice anything for my stubbornness
