Use Digikey- 860 units on stock about an hour ago.
I don’t expect that Terrasic is earning much.
Most likely it’s the other way around - Intel is doing negative income as they sponsor the board. Otherwise it would be more expensive.

I know, and Amazon will probably refill its own stock soon, if it didn't already. My point is just that they seem to be selling quite fast ...

Terasic is one thing and Intel is another. Yeah, of course that Intel provides the FPGA to Terasic at cost, perhaps even at loss. But surely Terasic earns for every board they sell.

LOL.
I think Terasic is wondering why DE10-nano sells like hot cakes :)
Not sure if they know about MiSTer.

Maybe I should put some on stock before they incrase the price or won't sell to us anymore due to "unintended usage" :D

I'd imagine sales for MiSTer are a drop in the ocean compared to yearly sales to university students.

In any case there are ports for at least one other Terasic board, so availability should remain good for a while, even at a slightly higher price.

The stream was an all nighter for me in the UK but fun anyway. I know that a lot of people are really grateful for your work so I was happy to help in some small way, it's a wonderful project and it seems to be in very capable hands. :D
