In order to keep the RK3399 cool, the boards also features two 2.5mm PCB holes for mounting a heat sink. The company will provide Android 7.1 firmware, and Lubuntu 16.04 desktop image with GPU and VPU acceleration. i.e. 3D graphics acceleration and hardware video decoding. You’ll soon find download links and other documentation on the Wiki.
NanoPC-T4 can be purchased now for $129 plus shipping with a heatsink, two antennas, a 12V/2A power supply, and an acrylic case with screws and spacers.
