Terasic is selling another board - DE10-standard: http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/ ... 1&PartNo=1
From MiSTer point of view it's pretty the same as DE10-nano:
+ Size of FPGA and DDR3 are the same.
+ It has SDRAM on board
+ Has VGA and analog audio on board
+ Full size USB host connectors
- No HDMI
- It's more than twice larger board, so definitely not for minimalists
- Much more expensive
VGA on this board can be used with scaler(can be switchable original/scaler) - just the same as HDMI. For HDMI, external $5 VGA-HDMI converter can be used since VGA output will have correct VGA/HD resolutions (not like VGA on MiST).
Some people complain that MiSTer is not a turn-key solution for end-user as it requires soldering the addons or search where to buy. DE10-standard can be that turn-key solution, as it won't have required addons, although some options like RTC can be added. It's probably twice more expensive than DE10-nano with all add-on boards attached. But i've heard opinions that price doesn't matter.
Since board is at 99% the same resource-wise with DE10-nano, it will be pretty simple to port the cores. Linux part will be identical. Although every core should be specifically compiled for this board.
I'm not really convinced in this fork, as i think DE10-standard has no that charm of tiny mighty DE10-nano.
Just wanna hear opinion from potential users. It's just in very beginning evaluation stage. I even have no this board. I still have long todo list for MiSTer. If someone else will do the port, then i would be just glad
