UP 4000: Single-board computer announced with Intel x86 processors and up to 8 GB of RAM
AAEON has announced a new single-board computer (SBC) under the UP Board brand. Sold as the UP 4000, the SBC measures 85.6 x 56.5 mm and relies on a choice of low-powered Intel processors. Hence, the UP 4000 is an x86-based SBC, unlike the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, for example.
Specifically, the SBC comes with the Atom x7-E3950, Pentium N4200 or the Celeron N3350. For reference, Intel launched all these processors nearly 5 years ago. As such, they are all based on Intel's older 14 nm process. Also, none support Intel Hyper-Threading; only the Atom x7-E3950 has more than a 6 W TDP too. In short, Intel has replaced these Apollo Lake processors with multiple other architectures, spanning Gemini Lake to Jasper Lake.
Regardless, the UP 4000 supports Linux and Windows 10, among other operating systems. Additionally, the SBC has LAN, HDMI and three USB 3.2 Gen1 ports, plus a 40-pin GPIO header. Currently, UP offers the SBC in six configurations, starting with the Celeron N3350, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of eMMC flash storage for US$116.10, excluding taxes. Full pricing and availability can be found on the UP Shop, but the UP 4000 can be configured up to US$233.10 with the Pentium N4200, 8 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash storage.
