AAEON introduced a new motherboard that can be equipped with a very powerful processor. This fact in itself is not newsworthy, but the fact that the board is the size of a Raspberry Pi makes it special.
Gene-ADP6 can be equipped with 12 i7 cores, with 16 threads and only 3.5 inches wide. In addition to the i7, you can also choose other flavors, such as Celeron or i3. The i5 and i7 versions have Intel Xe Graphics built in, and the i3, Pentium, and Celeron must be compatible with HD Graphics. Embedded versions of the chips were selected. Since these types of tags are often used for projects, this is an advantage. These variants have often been provided by Intel for a bit longer than other variants.
There is space for two memory modules. Furthermore, the board has two network ports (Gigabit and 2.5 Gbit), an HDMI 2.1 port, a DisplayPort 1.4 and three USB connections at 10 Gbit/s. The USB-C connection provides 15W of power.
- i7-1270PE (12C/16T, 3.30GHz, up to 4.50GHz, 28W, TDP up to 64W)
- i7-1265UE (10C/12T, 3.50GHz, up to 4.70GHz, 15W, TDP up to 55W)
- i5-1250PE (12C/16T, 3.20GHz, up to 4.40GHz, 28W, TDP up to 64W)
- i3-1220PE (8C/12T, 3.10GHz, up to 4.20GHz, 28W, TDP up to 64W)
- Celeron 7305E (5C/5T, 3.10GHz, up to 4.20GHz, 15W, TDP-up 55W)
The board can be connected to a 12V power source. For i7 it should be a good copy. AAEON indicates a maximum consumption of 95.4 watts. Moreover, the board provides sata port and m.2 connection for . There is also a special fpc connection with pcie x4 for graphics or nvme applications.
