Raspberry Pi: Turn the Compute Module 4 into a cluster system with Turing Pi 2
It has been a few months since Turing Pi released its first product, the eponymously-titled Turing Pi Cluster Board. Designed for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+, Turing Pi has now announced a successor for the Compute Module 4.
Called the Turing Pi 2, the device will be able to combine up to four Compute Module 4 units. Each Compute Module 4 contains four ARM Cortex-A72 cores, so the Turing Pi 2 will have up to sixteen cores at its disposal. Turing Pi has created a 260-pin adapter board to connect four Compute Module 4 units together, which explains its mini-ITX form factor.
According to current plans, the Turing Pi 2 should have an HDMI and MIPI DSI output for image signals, along with a 3.5 mm jack connection for handling audio output. Additionally, it will contain two SATA III ports for connecting drives and four USB ports for peripherals. There will be two Gigabit Ethernet ports and two mPCIe slots, too.
Turing Pi has announced its full plans for the Turing Pi 2 here. The system will launch in 2021, but Turing Pi is yet to put a price on its latest device.
