IPMI or HDMI? It has an HDMI port. IPMI I wouldn't expect in a home PC mobo.

Not sure if there's still much use for this kind of thing now that there are raspberry pi distros for just about any functionality, but that looks like a decent price to me.

Much faster than Raspberry PI's LOL. Pretty hot price. Supports AES NI.

Just 2x sata ports? One could use this as a cheap aio media nas with tvout. Don't need a separate media player then.

Yes, you would need to add at least one more NIC with PCI-E add-in card though.

It might be faster, but a raspberry pi has more threads. Let's be honest here... I pray nobody would consider one of these boards for use as a general use PC... it's going to be used as some kind of single purpose device (like a pfsense router) and in many of those cases more threads is going to trump speed.

edit: (And don't get me wrong... I'm the thumbs-up vote so I'm not poo-pooing this as a decent deal if you have a use for it).

Oh for sure, I certainly don't recommend this for a general purpose PC either (but would probably be fine for email/web surfer), but the CPU is MUCH more capable.
