Unfortunately, the released layouts (Thin client) are for an outdated
CRT only version of GX. Long term supply is questionable. However, it
is good reference for a new layout. I would suggest to build the one
in the SBC version. Unfortunately, they are not releasing the layouts
for it, I asked.

Noop, they won't do 10 layers with 5 mils lines and 8 mils holes. We
have to do it in our factory.

Yes, if you build it with the new chip, not the old chip. If you build
the SBC version, I am ready to buy some.
