UDOO Vision X5 and Vision X7 arrive as Raspberry Pi alternatives with Intel x86 processors and Windows support
UDOO has introduced two new alternatives to the Raspberry Pi based on x86 processors. Sold as the Vision X5 and Vision X7, the pair are essentially the same single-board computer (SBC) save for a few differences. Namely, UDOO has equipped the SBCs with different processors and memory capacities. They share all other features though, such as an ATmega32U4 microcontroller, an M.2 Key B slot, an M.2 Key E slot and two Gigabit Ethernet connections.
According to UDOO, it has equipped the Vision X5 with the Intel Atom x5-E3940, a quad-core part that has 1.8 GHz CPU clock speeds and an Intel HD Graphics 500 series iGPU with 12 Execution Units (EUs). By contrast, the Vision X7 features the more powerful Atom x7-E3950, another quad-core processor. However, the Atom x7-E3950 boosts to 2 GHz and has an iGPU that possesses 18 EUs and a 50 MHz higher boost clock speed.
Moreover, UDOO equips the Vision X5 with 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32 GB of eMMC flash storage, half the capacity of the Vision X7. The latter still utilises LPDDR4 RAM and eMMC flash storage, though. Currently, UDOO sells the Vision X5 for US$349 before taxes and shipping. In comparison, the Vision X7 retails for US$419. Please see UDOO's documentation for more details.
