Nice, but way too expensive.
I would love to win one of these during giveaway week. 😉
If it would have 8GB of RAM for the same price, I would definitely look shortlist it 🙂
The J4105 has only 6 PCIe-2 6 lanes. So the NVMe is probably x2 and SATA only not PCI. Better go with an Odroid H2 with one NVMe PCI x4 and two SATA ports on which you can install up to 32GB of memory. Also has two 1GbE ports. A much better deal for the same final price. Finally because it’s a DIY SBC you can use whatever disk size you want i.e. 10TB.
Its one nvme the rest is all sata as per the article above. So just one real ssd, one emmc, and twice sata.
You’re mistaken. Wi-Fi is via CNVi, so no PCIe needed. Two PCIe for Ethernet, which leaves four PCIe for NVMe, as nothing else uses PCIe.
