64 bit boards?
« on: October 28, 2015, 11:21:39 AM »
Are there any SBCs than can run a pure 64bit version of TCL? Specifically I want to be able to run the latest version of Go (which is 64-bit only now) as well as Docker.

Sure, but boards like Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone are not x86 right ?

Correct. Those are ARM based.

So, are there any 64bit ARM boards out there that run (64 bit) TCL ?

There is no 64-bit TC for ARM currently. Even such boards are still rare.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I'm guessing the only ones that exist are those used in smartphones ;-)

Yes, one expensive board with no SATA, low RAM, etc. That's what I meant with them being still rare. Compare with older ARM boards of every variety in many price classes, wide availability.

Well, Intel Minnow MAX (64bit x86) is $145 and this is $130, so its all relative I suppose...
