64-Core Reward

Posted by Adapteva (Creator)

The 64-core reward has been added as a selection.  Note that the 64-core version at $199 is only possible if we reach our stretch goal of $3M.  If we don't, the reward defaults to a pair of 16-core version boards. 

Here is the reward in detail:

64-CORE: You get everything in the SUPPORTER reward and a 64-core Epiphany-IV based Parallella board (2 ARM cores and 64 Epiphany cores) if we reach our stretch goal of $3M. If we don't reach our stretch goal but meet our minimum funding goal, you will receive a pair of Epiphany III boards (2 ARM cores and 16 Epiphany cores). Both boards come loaded with the development software needed to create your own innovative projects. (International order should add $20 to the pledge amount).

Best wishes,

The Adapteva Team

      @Liad .. words of wisdom : re: Facebook and Linkin
      The only time I ever come to KickStarter, is when I see it on Facebook .. or if an associate points me at it.

      @Adapteva, one more thing, you should really promote this more on LinkedIn, and Facebook as some people suggested, in relevant interest groups (parallel computing groups, image processing and vision groups, low-latency trading groups, etc.)

      I have shared a link to the project on the OpenCL group on Facebook.

      @Adapteva, at the rate the funding is going I don't see it makes your strech goal of 3M, so the whole Epiphany-III vs Epiphany-IV question isn't really an issue. Ofcourse I would be extremely happy if it became an issue, which would mean the 3M goal is near, but at that point, the fact that it's near 3M makes the whole thing a non-issue due to your 1st update. This is what I mean by confusion.

      That said, I just want to clarify that I'm not really considering lowering my pledge. In fact, I would have upped it further if I could, as I really want to see this project funded, rewards aside.

      @Liad We apologize for our the handling of some of these rewards issues, the responses were not what we predicted. In terms of rewards, we will figure something out that should be fair for the $499 option.

      Silly as it may sound, I am now considering lowering my 519 to 219... I probably wont do it, as that would work against the goal, but ofcourse I'd prefer an Epiphany-IV based board over an Epiphany-III based one.

      To be completely honest, I'm a bit confused by your strategy in handling this issue.

      Thank you! Smart move. Now my projects will be able to think for themselves.

      Ah, at last it is here! Changed my $119 to $219. Thanks.

      Thank you @Adapteva .. increased mine to $219
      By making 64 cores a pledge, you will inspire extra confidence .. hopefully you'll get the 3 Mill.
      Even if you don't .. I will be able to do insane things to one of 2 16 cores :)
