RE: RADXA X2L, 8Gb ram, nVME, Single Board Computer with Pico 4020 chip & GPIO.

Fellas, friends, @Davee and @zander. I think I am just about over trying to figure out what the Pi5 has or wants or expects or negotiates or doesn't n...

RE: RADXA X2L, 8Gb ram, nVME, Single Board Computer with Pico 4020 chip & GPIO.

The only thing I have not done is use a USB C break out board, and shove 5vdc at 5A directly down the USB C power wires. Which, as far as I can tell,...

Hi Dave, llama3 8B refers to the 8 Billion parameters it was trained on. The actual file size when you download the entire model, is 4.7Gb. To run th...

I don't plan to run a specialized Robotic OS like ROS. Someday, maybe, but that learning curve is beyond my availability. I'll probably run Linux Min...
