3.5-inch SubCompact board features LGA1200 socket for Comet Lake Embedded processors

Comet Lake SBC socketed processor

Most compact boards covered on CNX Software are either getting the processor soldered on board, or with a system-on-module including CPU, storage, memory, and potentially other features like PMIC and Ethernet. But AAEON GENE-CML5 3.5-inch subcompact board adopts a different approach and uses an LGA1200 socket to offer a choice of five different Intel Comet Lake Embedded processors from Celeron up to Core i7. AAEON GENE-CML5 specifications: SoC (one or the other) Intel Core i7-10700TE 8-core/16-thread Comet Lake processor @ 2.0 GHz / 4.4 GHz (Turbo) with 16MB cache, Intel UHD Graphics 630; 35W TDP Intel Core i5-10500TE 6-core/12-thread Comet Lake processor @ 2.3 GHz / 3.7 GHz with 12MB cache, Intel UHD Graphics 630; 35W TDP Intel i3-10100TE quad-core/4-thread Comet Lake processor @ 2.3 GHz /  3.6 GHz with 6MB cache, Intel UHD Graphics 630; 35W TDP Intel Pentium Gold G6400TE dual-core/4-thread processor @ 3.2 GHz with 4MB cache, […]

The 5 best Intel & AMD single board computers for makers

Best Intel AMD single board computers for makers

A few weeks ago, we wrote a list of what we consider to be the top 5 most powerful Arm SBC’s and development kits, and this time around we’ll cover x86 SBC’s powered by Intel or AMD processors. But this time around, instead of focusing on the most powerful x86 single board computers which would lead to unaffordable, industrial Xeon SBC’s, we’ll be looking into the 5 best boards designed for makers. That means affordable pricing, I/O headers, and community support. The list is in no particular order. Rock Pi X – x86 on the cheap If you ever wanted the cheapest possible x86 board, Atomic Pi SBC $35 price tag was hard to beat, but it was only cheap because it was sourced from a failed robotics project, and not very convenient to use. But now in 2021, the cheapest x86 SBC that can run Windows is clearly Rock […]
