The only upgrade I can think of for this is a 2.5G ethernet port instead of one of the 1G ports. My god what a mini monster it'd be.

"Sadly, the board isn't available for sale at the time of writing, and its price remains unknown"
Well if it looks like vapourware, walks like vapourware and quacks like vapourware....
So much of this around in the rPi-lookalike world, and I don't think it's all done to the chip crunch.

There have been other exciting Arm announcements lately, like RockPi's RockPi 5, which uses the RK3588 with quad A76's and quad A55's.
Thing is, it sounds like it could take at least a year for general Linux support to be generally available, maybe more.

For those of us in the x86 world who are used to "plug and play" Linux support, the Arm work looks dramatically different, with lots of caveats and pitfalls.
