The Rock Pi X Model B is now orderable for US$59. The Raspberry Pi alternative features an Intel Atom processor and is available with up to 4 GB, along with 128 GB of eMMC storage.

Radxa has released a new version of the Rock Pi X, which is orderable from retailers such as AllNET China and Seeedstudio. The Rock Pi X is different from most single-board computers insofar as it is based on an Intel x86 processor. Specifically, the 85 x 54 mm board has an Atom x5 Z8300, a Cherry Trail CPU that integrates four processor cores and an Intel HD Graphics (Cherry Trail) GPU.

Currently, the cheapest Rock Pi X Model B is the SKU with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, which can be had for US$59 on AllNET China. Radxa has also developed a SKU with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage, although this US$49 model is sold out at the time of writing.

AllNET China and Seeedstudio sell a 4 GB version too, which starts at US$75 with 32 GB of storage. Additionally, AllNET China sells 64 GB and 128 GB models at US$85 and US$95, respectively.

The Rock Pi X Model B has a microSD card slot, five USB ports, a full-sized HDMI 1.4 port and Bluetooth/Wi-Fi connectivity. The board can run Android, Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04, along with other Linux distributions. Radxa has also provided a wiki for the Rock Pi X, which you can read here.
