The latest "Veyron" motherboard being added to the open-source Coreboot codebase is Shark.

Like the other Veyron motherboards already found in Coreboot, Veyron Shark is for another Rockchip ARM SoC design for a Chromebook/Chromebox.

Julius Werner of Google's Chromium team added the Veyron Shark mainboard into Coreboot Git. Shark is in turn is based off a copy of the Coreboot code for Veyron Speedy. Some of the code comes from Google while the rest is from Rockchip Inc.

Rockchip's latest chip series is the RK33xx that is based on an octa-core Cortex-A53 design with a GPU supporting OpenGL ES 3.1 and capable of HDMI 2.0 and 4Kx2K @ 60 FPS H.264/H.265 real-time video playback.

Soon as we have more information on these new Rockchip Veyron boards for use with Chrome OS we'll certainly pass it along.
