Kinda makes you wonder what kind of success or new projects a Raspberry Pi type board would do if you had multiple native 16x PCIe slots in an mATX package. Or even full size atx.

So, you want an ARM-based PC, huh? Maybe something like this?


I should quickly add that it uses the same type of ARM cores as Pi v3. So, in spite of the core count, it's no match for most modern x86 CPUs.

BTW, the article doesn't say this, but he enabled the additional slots through the use of a PCIe switch. However, the connection to the Pi is still probably connected by a single lane (and I'm guessing PCIe 2.0, at best).

Here's the blog entry, since I didn't notice a "source" link, in the article:
