Looks might expensive though, around 3700$. Makes me wonder if they couldn't get a 4-core POWER8 CPU for cheaper.

Now you can order the mainboard:

Quote
It is now time to confirm your interest in ordering a Talos™ mainboard!  To accurately gauge your interest in purchasing a Talos™ system, please indicate your commitment level on our response page:

We have posted two new videos, "The World Beyond x86" and "Legacy x86 Applications on OpenPOWER™ via QEMU" to the Talos™ Secure Workstation pre-order site!  The first video presents a birds-eye view of the current state of computing in relation to the major architectures currently available, and the second video demonstrates full 3D-enabled execution of multiple non-native applications using Linux and QEMU.  Both videos are available using the links on the Talos™ pre-order site:

https://www.raptorengineering.com/TALOS/prerelease.php

As before, it is vital to confirm your interest in pre-ordering one or more units now.  We are rapidly approaching the final decision deadline, at which time we will determine if Talos™ is able to be released for pre-order.  We invite you to consider a future where average users can either choose to use completely outdated hardware manufactured in the late 2000s, or be forced to license unalterable, unauditable, and wholly non-free software to perform even basic computing and communications tasks.  If projects such as Talos™ are not financially supported, this future is likely to become a permanent reality.  We need your support to avoid this!  Do your part: commit to purchasing a Talos™ unit from the initial run.  You will be helping to grow the only performant, open, and modern processor ecosystem currently available!

When pre-orders are taken, payment will be split between a down payment at order placement and a final payment prior to shipment.  The total cost for a Talos™ Secure Workstation starter kit will be $2,700 USD.  The package will include the Talos™ mainboard, a heatsink for the POWER8 processor, and an I/O plate for the Talos™ mainboard.  The lowest cost CPU (130W TDP, 8 cores) will be available for $1,000 USD.  If you need higher performance, other CPU options will be available at multiple price points, including the highest-performing 190W 12-core variant for demanding workloads.

It's really tempting, but I don't have that kind of money.

I've seen their explanation for the price as well.
I understand it's a heavy developers machine, but no normal home PC user will ever be affordable to afford such a machine.

They do seem to be raising quite a bit of money, but asking for 3,7 million dollars is a gargantuan amount of money for the project and I don't think they'll make that much.

Talos™ II Pre-Orders Now Open!

Very good pricing, IMO. At the moment, the site seems to be down?

Especially the CPU, it's only 310$. The site is just quite slow. If you'll load enough, you'll get through.

Yes, but don't forget the 3U HSF Assembly for POWER9 CPUs for 110$ :)
Anyway, 420$ for the latest and greatest CPU money can buy :o
