A rumble in Amazon's jungle: AWS now rents out homegrown 64-bit Arm server processors
Re: arm Vs atom Vs celeron
Oh man I can actually answer this!
I've got the Asrock Q1900 version, and had some really weird driver problems with Ubuntu 16.04, where you'd come back to a completely frozen display and system that required a restart. Even an RMA didn't solve them. Eventually switched to Windows 10 and the problems went away ....
And the BIOS menu is complete trash - absolute hot garbage.
But the chip seems to work well, and the system runs well. It's a bit slow transcoding Plex and whatnot, but it does what I need it to. I've not tried virtualization or anything yet, so can't speak for that.
