    Quote from Wikipedia: “the Quark SoC X1000 is a 32-bit, single core, single-thread, Pentium instruction set architecture (ISA)-compatible CPU, operating at speeds up to 400 MHz.”

    So this is a x86 CPU, and not ARM and not something else? Correct?

    This is not Quark X1000 (32nm) SoC used in Galileo board, but another dual core Quark SoC manufactured using 22nm process.

    Nevertheless, yes, this is a “Pentium class” x86 processor. In the board itself there’s also another Intel MCU, but I’m not sure what it is.
