The Turing Pi Cluster Board turns up to seven Raspberry Pi Compute Modules into a powerful cluster device. The board can not only be used for network storage, but also as a platform for video games.

Brought to our attention by BetaNews and reported by websites like CNX Software last year, the Turing Pi Cluster Board is almost ready for production. Built on a mini-ITX mainboard, the Turing Pi can hold up to seven Raspberry Pi Compute modules. The manufacturer states that all devices up to Computer Module 3+ are compatible.

The Turing Pi has a microSD card reader and 40 GPIO pins for each module, along with HDMI and a MIPI DSI connector video output. The manufacturer has included one 3.5 mm jack, two MIPI CSI connectors and Gigabit Ethernet with an on-board switch.

The 170 x 170 mm board has eight USB ports too and can be powered via a 12 V DC jack. Alternatively, you could use an ATX power supply. The Turing Pi supports the Kubernetes ecosystem, according to the manufacturer, as well as machine learning and serverless stacks. You could also use the Turing Pi to host Minecraft though, for example. Please see the board's documentation page for more information.

The Turing Pi can be pre-ordered for US$189 plus shipping, with the manufacturer hoping to ship units in June or July 2020. Please note that the price is only for the Turing Pi. Accordingly, you must purchase Compute Modules and a power supply separately.
