Despite the release of several mini PCs, the Raspberry Pi is still the most popular and perhaps the best-selling in the world. It is true that the Raspberry Pi could have improved quite a bit already, but the competition took advantage of these weak points.
Today we will meet the UP 4000 which is a replica of the Raspberry Pi but features an x86 processor.
UP 4000 is available in three versions
The UP 4000 is a small, versatile computer that is very similar to the Raspberry PI, but supports a variety of operating systems, including Windows 10 and Linux.
This new device is available for pre-order now for $116 (about 115 euros) and will begin shipping in August 2022.
Like the Raspberry Pi Model B, this small computer is about the size of a credit card, but features pretty much everything a computer needs, except for a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
AAEON offers models with up to 8GB of LPDDR4-2400 memory and up to 64GB of eMMC storage. The system is available in three processor versions:
- Intel Celeron N3350: Dual core, 2-thread, 1.1GHz base/2.4GHz, 6W TDP, Intel HD 500
- Intel Pentium N4200: 4-core, 4-thread, 1.1GHz base / 2.5GHz burst / 6W TDP, Intel HD 505 Graphics
- Intel Atom x7-E3950: 4-cores, 4-thread, 1.6GHz base/2GHz burst, 12W TDP, Intel HD 505 Graphics
The UP 4000 also comes with...
- 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C (with DisplayPort 1.2 support)
- 3 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A ports
- Two USB 2.0 Type A ports
- 1 x HDMI 1.4b
- 1 Gigabit Ethernet port
This card measures 85.6 x 56.5 mm (3.37 x 2.22 inches) and list prices range from $129 for a model with a Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage to $259 for an 8GB/64GB model. With a Pentium processor.
