Dedicated SBCs for each of the system’s four stacking components, each powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5422 octa-core CPU, are used in each of the system’s four stacking components. All of the components of the ODROID-XU4 and its aluminum case are compatible with the operating system.
Each of the cases has an 80mm USB fan mounted to the back of it to offer adequate cooling (which also has a built-in heatsink). It is possible to create your own customized cluster of devices for educational and professional purposes using the ODROID MC1.
Many parallel computing programs such as Docker Swarm, Build Farm, and many others are capable of running on this 32-core cluster computer, which is available at a low cost. This device is equipped with multiple interfaces, including MMC 5.0, USB 3.0, and Gigabit Ethernet, which are all required for enabling increased processing power on ARM-based devices. Users will benefit from faster booting, surfing the web, networking, and 3D gaming due to these improvements.
- A cooling fan is installed in each of the four units.
- 2GB of RAM and an Exynos5422 big-LITTLE octa-core Samsung CPU power each device.
- A Gigabit Ethernet port is available on each device for clustering.
- USB 2.0 Host Controller
- A microSD card slot that supports UHS-1 for boot media.
- A USB-powered 92x92x25mm low-noise cooling fan powered by 5 volts and 2000 rpm.
- A self-tapping screw with an M3 x 8mm head size
- Measurements (approximately): 112x93x72 mm.
- Images of the Linux operating system based on the current long-term support kernels (LTS) 4.9 and 4.14
Who should be interested in this board?
With the ODROID-MC1, a gadget that stands for My Cluster, you can have an affordable and powerful personal cluster at your disposal. Compared to the ODROID-HC1, it is devoid of a SATA port and is equipped with a large cooling fan to cope with the demands of high processing power. When it goes on sale in September of this year, it’s likely to sell for around $200.
What should users know about it?
- Epoxy resin is used to adhere the SoC and PMIC together.
- Using a single fan to cool four ODROIDs is an excellent money-saving feature.
- An eight-node ODROID-MC1 cluster powered by four stacked units.
- The overall speed is increased.
- You can sift through massive amounts of data
- In due course, resolve any issues that may arise.
- Cortex A7 processors with poor performance
- memory space is at a premium
THE BOTTOM LINE
The ODROID-MC1 represents a new generation of computing devices, thanks to its more powerful and more efficient hardware, as well as its smaller form factor. In addition to the most recent Ubuntu 16.04 operating system, older versions of the Android operating system are also compatible with the board, including older versions of the Android operating system.
