Yes, you are right. for tiles gx cpu mikrotik build only 6.x os.
Surely it where perhaps better also to start with a version named v5.x that not
all peoples would have the v5.x back for the CCR series! But good to know for them
for the next time I think!
this is very good cpu, with 36cores and 12MB of total cache, 64bit arch.
I consider the CPU series from Tilera the Tile Gx series I mean is very interesting for such a
company likes MikroTik is!
But this is only hardware features of this CPU. I think in mikrotik OS this functions realized as software emulation.
Half and half I think so, because some of the today features and functions from RouterOS must only be
programmed to be use able with the Tile Gx platform, other options that are given by the Tile Gx platform
must even be coded new or totally new things must be coded to inserting them into RouterOS, it is hearing
like being the same, but in my personal opinion only nearly like that.
6.x os has many problems, and must be repaired many times. For professional use of this version is incompatable with service quality.
But ok there fore MikroTik was announcing it as not ready for the productive networks only for lab and/or testing
fields! So nobody can complain on it, until all is done and renewed or reprogrammed, ready to use this fine piece
of hardware by unlocking all his real given power and options! I think if ROS os ready to use all the given hardware
capabilities it must be a great router and all the routers based on this hardware comes than with much better VPN
capabilities using the build in encryption engine called MiCA without any trouble and low latencies.
5.26 version is more stable and final. But can't installed to CCR with tile cpu. hehe
For sure and I want even more a version that is running stable and fast on the Tile Gx platform
and not the older system only driven through the compiler and with all known bugs and what ever else.
So I think this is a very good position for MikroTik if your compare the price and by the platform given
capabilities and options it would be great if all is finished on this device!
