Does the Asus Tinker Board is able to run LINUXCNC ? this would be great the I/O could probably run on Ethernet. I know its getting harder and harder for regular PC hardware to be adapted to LINUXCNC. PC has a big foot print, if it could be replace with a Asus Tinker Board the implementation could easily fit in smaller box. Hope the LINUXCNC Team would give it a try.
Comment here if you would like ("a wish") this implementation so we can create interest

I will give it a look, but i do not think it will do, processor is unknown. Even if it is x86 architecture, most probably it will have sky high latency as they use all possible power saving options.
Also please post links to sites that have a bit of respect for the readers, not sites that force people to disable adblockers and use coockies specificaly for tracking.
Thanks for the info, i never heard of that board before right now.

If someone wants to try the Tinker board, the first step is to build a real time kernel
and check whether you can get decent latency (and stability)

Either Xenomai or Preempt-RT kernels could be built

Note its not really true that PCs that run LinucCNC are getting hard o find,
as a matter of fact, many newer PCs have very good latency, even with Preempt-RT
which is probably the future real time kernel of choice.

The board only seems to have been announced/released this week...

http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/1/24/14368622/raspberry-pi-alternative-tinker-board-asus-4k

Specs for the Tinker Board include a quad core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A17 CPU, 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, four USB 2.0 ports, support for gigabit LAN and Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD slot, Micro USB for power, swappable 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi antennas, and a HDMI 2.0 port with support for 4K video.

Thanks for the heads up on the PC hardware, that is a relief for me. I am about to put a configuration together by next week so if there is a Mesa PC package for 5I25-7I77 or an integrated PC package that includes the Mesa 5I25-7I77 in it, can you or someone post the package model number or the listing so I and probably others can take a look so trying to choose hardware its not an issue anymore at least for me.
