a 4MP camera with 1080p resolution
1080p digital codecs probably hate that.
Rent-a-cloud biz AWS has cooked up a melange of still more AI-oriented bit bundles to serve pay-as-you-go customers, topped with the promise of AI-enhancing hardware and a throwable self-driving car. It already has quite a few smart code confections: Rekognition, Lex, Polly, Transcribe, Comprehend, Translate, Sagemaker, and …
The Atom family evolved a lot since the first models. Just look at the C3000 SoCs which are akin to low-power low-temperature Xeons - far less powerful, true, but still able to support a good amount of memory and also coming with features like Intel QAT and 10Gb Ethernet for storage/network use, interesting for building firewall/NAS devices when power consumption and cooling could be an issue.
And remember this is a model car to develop technologies, you shoudn't see them zipping along streets....
Yeah I kinda get it that the Atom has (hopefully), improved some over the last decade now. Its just my Brain associates Atom with very laggy, and slow as Mollassess on Brass Monkess cold January morn' SoC. And, to be honest I wouldn't care to ever see one ever again. But, I don't think its like Intel are curning these Chips out like its 2008 again. So perhaps I am being to unkind?
I understand you - but when I was looking for a small system to build a small low-power firewall with - I found Atom C3000 systems and in the beginning I thought too "Atoms?" - but looking a little deeper I found they didn't look too bad, and it looks Intel worked on making them interesting for some kind of low power/embedded systems - from few-cores, low power models to models with more cores (and more power needed) and more processing power.
I ordered a few days ago a motherboard with a C3558 chip (I needed a low TDP for cooling reasons), I will have more data about these Atoms as soon as it arrives.
Ok as long as we can agree that Atoms probably shouldn't be atempting to run a baseline OS (cough XP/7 & or Linux), then i#m good. As some higher end contender to ARM for IoT(hings), or indeed as a mindless brain to a NAS Box, yeah I think it could indeed work in that envroment well enough.
Still that won't be enough to stop me from going arseholes, and elbows away from anything I see as having an Atom inside. I guess I'm just Atom-phobic in need of counseling at this point.
"It also teased a machine-learning inference chip called Inferentia, and a small radio-controlled car called DeepRacer for executing autonomous driving models in the real-world and terrifying pets."
Damn, I got a CAT I would love to use this to chase it with (as long as the Missus isn't around)
.. Amazon here I come ...
