ODROID-XU4, new board XU3 compatible for $74


It seems that there is no summer for Hardkernel guys. While the ODROID-C1 stock is sold, new PCB come to scene. I present you the brand new ODROID-XU4.

I hightligh the next features:

  • Size: 82 x 58 x 22 mm approx. Weight, 60 gr with fan

  • Samsung Exynos 5422 octa-core with 4 Cortex-A15 CPU cores and 4 ARM Cortex-A7 cores

  • 2GB of RAM, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet

  • Mali-T628 MP6 OpenGL ES 3.0 / 2.0 / 1.1 and OpenCL 1.1 Full profile

  • 2 USB 3.0 + 1 USB 2.0 port

  • No Jack or DisplayPort

  • Support Android 4.4 & 5.0, Ubuntu 15.04 and all OS for XU3

  • Power supply 5V-4A


The price included built-in fan and power supply. If you go to the product page, the numerous benchmarks speak for itself. I would emphasize speed of eMMC 5.0 and is an ideal for NAS or use it as Desktop PC, due to their high rates of transfer. The downside comes with the international shipping cost, amounting to $25, so at the end you pay for the board $100 dollars (about 90 euros).

Still, I think it is a very full board and in the context of price where it moves is hardly be beaten.
