AAEON provides support for Windows 10/11 64-bit and Ubuntu 22.04 with Linux 6.5 and greater. The company also says it has “instituted power limitations via CPU frequency scaling to maintain the stability of the board’s CPU temperature and voltage during operation”, but I don’t see how it differs from all other recent Intel systems. You’ll find resources to get started on the Wiki which also mentions support for the Yocto Project.

The UP Xtreme i14 is not the first 14th Intel Meteor Lake board or computer-on-module we’ve covered and some other products include the ADLINK cExpress-MTL COM Express Type 6 Compact module, ASRock Industrial NUC Ultra 100 motherboard, and DFI MTH968 COM Express module. But as a community board, the UP Xtreme i14 will be easier to source by individual and small companies.

The UP Xtreme i14 is now available for pre-order via the UP shop with the Intel Core Ultra 5 processor SKU selling for $749 with 16GB RAM, and the Intel Core Ultra 7 processor SKU going for $959. A 19V/6.32A is offered for free during the pre-order period until July 5, but you’ll still need to add storage and other accessories. A full system with an enclosure called the UP Xtreme i14 Edge is also in the works, but not yet available. Additional information may also be found on the product page.

Meteor Lake is an uninteresting dud.

an up to 32 TOPS Intel AI Boost NPU

This number is a combination of CPU, GPU, and NPU, the “platform TOPS”. The Meteor Lake NPU alone is only good for about 9.5 to 11 TOPS.

Ouch, this is quiet expensive. Who really need that much horsepower for a sbc like computer?

I’ll take whatever I can get… at a low, low price. On that note, I think the development of interest to us is the reveal of initial Skymont IPC claims: +38% average in integer, +68% in floating point, compared to Crestmont LP E-cores. Alternatively, +2% IPC vs. Raptor Cove, the P-core in 13th/14th gen. That’s simply phenomenal, although Intel has given a disclaimer that the results could be off by 10%. Whatever the case, a Skymont-based successor to the N100 / N305 Alder Lake-N chips could be seriously impressive. Unfortunately, there have leaks for a refresh of Alder Lake-N. That… Read more »
