Like many individuals, we’re large followers of the varied Raspberry Pi single-board computer systems (SBCs) and the various tasks they’ve enabled. Just at present, for instance, we wrote a few nifty ‘Dice Bomb’ cube curler that could possibly be notably useful for DnD classes. If you want a bit extra processing energy and/or a x86 basis, nonetheless, UP is taking preorders for its new UP 4000 SBC.
UP makes an entire bunch of credit score card-sized SBCs, and the UP 4000 is its newest mannequin. There are three Intel processors that customers can choose. They embrace a dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 clocked at 1.1GHz to 2.4GHz, a quad-core Pentium N4200 clocked at 1.1GHz to 2.5GHz, and a quad-core Atom x7-E3950 clocked at 1.6GHz to 2GHz.
All three are primarily based on Apollo Lake. According to UP, you are up 30 quicker CPU efficiency and twice the 3D graphics processing energy in comparison with its UP Board, to facilitate extra industrial and full-featured computing workloads and edge computing.
“With 12V standard industrial power input, increased memory options, and a wide range of IO options such as multiple video output ports, audio line in/out, faster USB ports, and other rich I/Os, UP 4000 offers high performance with lower power consumption in a form factor that can fit anywhere,” UP says.
The UP 4000 additionally delivers an upgraded energy enter (to 12V DC-in), onboard TPM v2.0, assist for as much as 8GB of dual-channel DDR4-2400, as much as 128GB of storage capability, and UEFI firmware. Other options and connections embrace…
  • 3x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A
  • 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C
  • 2x USB 2.0 through 10-pin wafer
  • 2x UART (Tx/Rx) debut port (pin header)
  • 1x FPC connector for provider board
  • 40-pin HAT
  • SIM slot (through provider board)
  • 1x GbE (Realtek RTL8111G-CG)
  • 1x HDMI 1.4b
  • 1x DisplayPort 1.2 (through USB Type-C)
Users may also add Wi-Fi 5/6, Bluetooth, and 4G LTE or 5G through M.2 2230 and M.2 3052. So comparatively talking, there is a respectable quantity of energy on faucet and a wealthy set of options. Compared to the Raspberry Pi lineup and comparable SBCs, you are the next worth for the UP 4000, although preorder reductions knock 10 p.c off. Here’s the way it shakes out…
  • Intel Celeron N3550 w/ 2GB RAM, 16GB eMMC: $116.10 (down from $129)
  • Intel Celeron N3350 w/ 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC: $125.10 (down from $139)
  • Intel Celeron N3350 w/ 4GB RAM, 32GB eMMC: $152.10 (down from $169)
  • Intel Pentium N4200 w/ 4GB RAM, 32GB eMMC: $197.10 (down from $219)
  • Intel Pentium N4200 w/ 8GB RAM, 64GB eMMC: $233.10 (down from $259)
  • Intel Atom E3900 w/ 4GB RAM, 64GB eMMC: $188.10 (down from $209)
If you are , you possibly can head to the UP Shop and preorder your required mannequin. Discounted costs are legitimate till July 15, 2022 (this Friday), and shipments will exit subsequent month.
