The popular single-board computer Raspberry Pi has a curious competitor. We are talking about the UP 4000 from UP Board, which is a complete copy of the “raspberry”, but based on an Intel Celeron, Pentium or Atom processor.
On a board with dimensions of 85.6 × 56.5 mm, 2, 4 or 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and an eMMC drive with a capacity of up to 64 GB are soldered. It is based on one of the processors of the Apollo Lake family: Celeron N3350 (up to 2.4 GHz), Pentium N4200 (up to 2.5 GHz), Atom x7-E3950 (up to 2.0 GHz), and the integrated HD video core is responsible for graphics processing Graphics 500 or 505.
The set of external interfaces is similar to Raspberry Pi. There are 3x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A and a single USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C, HDMI 1.4b video output, a gigabit network port, and of course 40-pin GPIO.
UP 4000 will be on sale next month with a price tag of $116-233 depending on the modification.
