Atomic Pi - PinKy - 04-27-2019

Here an interesting device people>


https://dlidirect.com/products/atomic-pi


This mini PC board comes with an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 , 480 mhz GPU, 16GB emmc, and up to 256 GB SD

didirect is asking $34 for the bare board.  

As of this writing, I do not see Windows being advertised as an compatible OS, but i'm sure all things may be possible in the near future......
(IE: external gpu, sata, ect)

Cheap and still powerful enough to run some powerful Emulators. may think about getting this very soon.

That is a nice board. Quad Core but with on-board 2GB Ram. Also, according to description;
"Linux comes preloaded... Yes, it'll run Win10 32 or 64."

That means they confirmed that device will run Win10.

Hah Im blind^

Hopefully this is not as atomic as the title says

4-15w 5v will require a small power supply

For the everyday guy, the "useable" price is a bit higher with breakout board at $49,case add a PSU to start
That cooler on top...yikes


Embedded cpu
boards with replaceable ddr4 are relatively cheap now, but again, more = more.

Heres a link to the
"user guide"

This has many possibilities, thanks!

This couldnt run modern games for sure and im sure you know that already but good for retro gaming like ps1 and back. its kinda slow for ps2 emulation but its quad so you might be able to run it try and see.
