Hardkernel ODROID-XU Lite Development Board Features Exynos 5410 @ 1.4GHz for $139

Hardkernel ODROID-XU development board launched for $149, and now costs $169. Hardkernel has recently announced a cost-down version named ODROID-XU Lite, with almost exactly the same specifications: Samsung Exynos 5410 Octa Core big LITTLE Cortex A15/A7 processor, 2GB RAM, eMMC storage, etc.. The only differences are that the Cortex A15 cores are clocked up to 1.4GHz instead of 1.6GHz, and you’ll save $30, as the Lite version costs $139.

ODROID_XU_LiteHere’s a reminder of the specifications:

  • SoC – Samsung Exynos5 Octa Cortex-A15 @ 1.4GHz and Cortex-A7 big.LITTLE processor with PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • Storage – micro SD slot, eMMC 4.5 connector
  • Video Output – micro HDMI + MPI LCD interface and Touch screen I2C ports (IPEX-40PIN)
  • Audio – micro HDMI, headphone jack, MAX98090 Audio Codec
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet via USB 2.0 (LAN9730)
  • USB – 1x USB 3.0 Host, 1x USB 3.0 OTG, and 4x USB 2.0 Host
  • Expansion Header – 30 pins (GPIO/IRQ/SPI/ADC)
  • Misc – PWM connector for Cooler,
  • Power Supply – 5V/4A (Plug specification is inner diameter 2.1mm and outer diameter 5.5mm)
  • PMIC  – MAX77802 10 high-efficiency Buck regulators and 32 LDOs.

This price makes it the cheapest Cortex A15 development platform available today. The 200MHz difference corresponds to a loss of 12.5% in raw CPU performance, but Antutu reports about 8% performance hit compared to the original version of the board. There’s virtually no difference in terms of RAM bandwidth, database I/O, and 2D graphics.
