The Gizmo board was an innovative step for providing x86 architecture to the open-source community. The Gizmo 2 further revolutionizes the market.

The Gizmo 2 performance is forging new paths in the open source board market, providing 85 GLOPS while drawing only 9 watts, and with industry leading features such as an HDMI dedicated port, extra PCIe, SD card slot for added mass storage and nonvolatile memory, an mSATA port for connecting SSDs, and a microSD card slot, there’s a tremendous amount of value at US$199. The Gizmo 2 also includes Linux from Timesys and a coreboot®-based SageBIOS™ OSP from Sage Electronic Engineering.

“We’re very excited about our continuing partnership with GizmoSphere,” noted Symmetry President Ken Davison. “We’ve seen some great projects powered by the original Gizmo board, and we’re looking forward to seeing what people do with Gizmo 2.”

“The Gizmo board was an innovative step for providing x86 architecture to the open-source community,” said David Beck, Symmetry Vice President of Marketing. “The Gizmo2, with its powerful x86 G-SoC architecture on a small 4x4 inch SBC, further revolutionizes the market.”

Symmetry will be stocking the Gizmo 2, and it is currently available for pre-orders through Symmetry’s ecommerce site SemiconductorStore.com.
