$40 (probably excluding shipping)

-Amlogic ARM 4x Cortex-A53 @2GHz
-Mali-450 GPU (3 Pixel-processors + 2 Vertex shader processors) @700MHz
-produced on 28nm
-2GB DDR3 32bit @912MHz
-Gigabit Ethernet
-HDMI 2.0 4K/60Hz display
-H265 4K/60FPS and H264 4K/30FPS capable VPU
-eMMC5.0 / UHS-1 MicroSD Card slot
-4x USB 2.0
-Infrared Receiver
-Ubuntu 16.04 or Android 5.1 Lollipop (based on Kernel 3.14)
-85 x 56 mm
-40 (metric) grams

Estimated power usage 2-5W for average operation.
A bit better specs than the Raspberry Pi3, but also a few dollars more and a smaller userbase. I might be interesting to play with it for a few bucks .

[edit2]
Just noticed you can order from a shop in Germany, that is much better than my order for the Odroid-U2. I ordered the Odroid-U2 from their website and it took a long time before it arrived. I also had to pay import taxes, which UPS charged me a hefty 20 euros handeling fee for.
That looks much better for us than the raspberry pi.

The new NUC6i7KYK, codenamed "Skull Canyon," includes a 2.6GHz (3.5GHz Turbo) 45W quad-core Core i7-6770HQ—not the fastest Skylake laptop chip that Intel can sell you, but definitely one of the fastest.

AnandTech concluded this about the NUC6i5SYK:

Overall, our experience with the NUC6i5SYK was not what we have come to expect from a typical Intel product. Unless one wants to be an adventurous beta tester, we would suggest waiting for Intel to resolve all pending issues with the Skylake NUC before contemplating a purchase. Hopefully, the Iris Pro-equipped Skull Canyon NUC (with Thunderbolt 3 integrated) will fare better when it comes to the market.

I've got one of these on the way from the German retailer; should arrive end of the month. At which point I have a stable of five machines with five recent ARM architectures (Cortex-A7 RPi2, Cortex-A9 ODroid-X, Cortex-A15 Jetson TK1, Cortex-A53 ODroid-C2, Cortex-A57 Jetson TX1) and should start working out some more sensible way to store, network and use them.

Cool, please share your experiences/issues and performace/benchmarks with us :).

Running four threads of gmp-ecm is not enough to make the fan turn.
Now that 64-bit is available, did you retry?

I have a weekend of 64-bit ARM Linux planned (Raspberry Pi 3 has arrived at the office for a slightly different experiment, TX1 and Odroid-C2 are at home). Just hoping that being repeatedly walked on by the cat while turned off is not bad for devboards.

Cool, can't wait to see what you find!

I really need to get my hands on a proper 64-bit platform that would be both easily hackable and not too pricey. TX1 is too expensive and I want something more powerful than A53 to play with.

Use a hair dryer to remove cat hairs before turning them on

The Raspberry Pi Zero is very small, dirt cheap and takes hardly any power, so I'm thinking about building an ECM engine from a bunch of them.

Does anyone here have a Pi Zero and would be willing to benchmark GMP-ECM on it?

Buying a fully functional one (i.e. with PSU and storage) for myself would cost less than a gallon of beer but I'd like to avoid the latency if possible.

Also considering the Pi-3 if its price/performance is better than the Zero.

At http://cpc.farnell.com/mksp2-raspber...s-and-noobs-os the Pi-3 is £31.19, or £38.72 with storage included.

https://www.alibaba.com/product-deta...857.0.0.BbCy3v offers the Pi Zero at $1.30, which is about £2 after import duty and VAT. An 8G SD card is available for less than £3.

Does a Pi 3 offer at least 38.72 / (2+3) ~ 8 times the performance of a Pi Zero?
