For the past few years, UDOO has been making DIY boards with a bunch of impressive features. And now the team has developed UDOO Bolt, a more powerful portable, superminicomputer.
Powered by a built-in AMD Ryzen Embedded V1202B 3.2 GHz SoC processor and a Radeon Vega 3 graphics card, this 4.7-inch little monster is able to run AAA gaming, high-end VR, 3D rendering, as well as cryptocurrency mining at high speeds. When equipped with a chunk of RAM it’s “almost twice as powerful as a MacBook Pro 13-inch equipped with an Intel i5, and three times more powerful than a Mac Mini,” said the creators.
The UDOO Bolt might little, but could do things a powerful computer can do. With a USB keyboard, mouse and HDMI out to the monitor, you can use it like a mini workstation. It runs Windows 10 or any 64-bit Linux and is able to handle four monitors at once.
The hacker board comes with 32GB of eMMC 5.0 storage, two SODIMM slots for up to 32GB of DDR4-2400 memory, two HDMI 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, as well as two USB 3.1 Type-C ports.
The UDOO Bolt is currently available on Kickstarter with two variants to choose from, BOLT V8 packs Ryzen V1605B with Vega V8 graphics and BOLT V3 features AMD Ryzen V1202B with Vega 3 GPU. You can pre-order it for $229 or up and can expect the product to be shipped in December 2018.
