UP Xtreme i11: A single-board computer and mini-PC with Intel Tiger Lake processors, USB 4.0 connectivity and DDR4 SO-DIMM RAM
It has been a few months since AAEON and UP Board released the UP Xtreme Lite, but now the companies have moved onto the UP Xtreme i11. The new device, as its name suggests, is based on Intel's 11th generation processors, which should make it comparable powerful for its size.
The UP Xtreme i11 is available as a single-board computer (SBC) or a complete system. AAEON calls the latter the Edge Compute Enabling Kit, photos of which we have included below. The Edge Compute Enabling Kit includes all the hardware of the UP Xtreme i11, along with COM ports and a Phoenix terminal connector for accessing the machine's 40-pin GPIO header.
The board itself measures 122 x 120 mm and comes with a choice of four processors. The entry-level SKU has Intel's Celeron 6305E, which offers two cores and a UHD Graphics GPU with 48 Execution Units (EUs) on a 15 W TDP. The UP Xtreme i11 also comes with either the Core i3-1115G4E, Core i5-1145G7E or Core i7-1185G7E, which all have up to 28 W TDPs. The Core i5 and Core i7 processors both have four cores and Iris Xe Graphics GPUs, although the Core i7 has a 96 EU version to the Core i5's 80 EU GPU.
The UP Xtreme i11 also possesses dual SO-DIMM slots that accept up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM.
The machine supports ECC modules, for reference. Additionally, there are three M.2 expansions slots, one SATA 3.0 slot, one PCI-E x4 slot, four USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports and one USB 4.0 Type-C that supports DisplayPort. Similarly, one can connect the Up Xtreme i11 to a network via its two Ethernet ports or Wi-Fi/LTE using expansion boards.
The UP Xtreme i11 and Edge Compute Enabling Kit will be available to order in Q1 2021. AAEON is yet to provide any prices for either machine yet, though.
