A lot of developing countries in the world don’t have access to the kind of technology we do. Many believe this is no reason for a lack of internet access, though. To respond to this need, inexpensive maker boards powerful enough to support major operating systems like Windows, Android and Linux have steadily become commonplace over the years, one of the most famous being the Raspberry Pi.

And for good reason: it only cost $35. Still, where there’s a pioneer, there are other products that slightly tweak the formula. Meet the UDOO X86.

The UDOO X86 was created by a multidisciplinary team consisting of members from North America and Europe, experts in embedded electronics, interaction design software development, and sensor networks. UDOO was co-founded by SECO and AIDILAB and until now, the project made almost $640,000 on Kickstarter, with over two weeks left until the campaign’s end.

The UDOO X86 is based on Intel’s Quad Core 64-bit new-generation x86 processors, built using 14nm manufacturing processes that require only 5 to 6W to operate. Coupled with an onboard Intel Curie Arduino 101-compatible micro-controller, and it’s able to drive up to three 4K screens at the same time.

Customers can find the UDOO X86 in three models:

BASIC ($89): powered by a 2.00GHz Intel Braswell X5-E8000 processor and 2GB of DDR3L RAM
ADVANCED ($109): powered by a 2.24 GHz Intel Braswell N3160 processor and 4GB of dual channel DDR3L RAM
ULTRA ($209): powered by a 2.56 GHz Intel Pentium N3710 processor and backed by 8GB of dual channel DDR3L RAM

All three models have a SATA connector, 8GB eMMC storage, M.2 Key B slot and Micro SD card slot and support Gigabit Ethernet, and wireless, but this is optional. Users are also getting three USB 3.0 ports, two UART ports and three display ports: one HDMI and two mini DP++.
