Youyeetoo X1 is a compact Intel Celeron N5105 Jasper Lake SBC with up to 16GB RAM, optional eMMC flash of up to 256GB capacity, support for an M.2 NVMe or SATA SSD, up to three video outputs, Gigabit Ethernet, and optional WiFi and Bluetooth or 4G LTE connectivity.
In some ways, it reminds me of the Zimaboard, but the X1 SBC comes with an 11th Gen Jasper Lake processor instead of a 7th Gen Apollo Lake processor, it’s cooled with a fan and heatsink instead of being fanless and does offer more I/Os.
Youteetoo X1 specifications:

The Youteetoo X1 SBC can run Windows 10/11, as well as Ubuntu and Debian Linux distributions with the company claiming to provide sample code for both Windows and Linux for things like GPIOs. But at the time of writing, the wiki is pretty much empty. They also have a support forum with limited information including a 4K video playback demo. But documentation is probably only going to matter if you need to use the GPIOs, SPI, and I2C ports and other board-specific features.
One of the reasons for the lack of documentation at this time is that the X1 board is only up for pre-order with deliveries scheduled to start by August 31. Pricing starts at just $109.99 with 4GB RAM and no storage and goes up to $219.99 for the board with 16GB RAM and 256GB eMMC flash, which looks pretty competitive to me compared to some of the Arm and x86 boards I’ve written about recently.
