Up core
#1
The Up Core is the Up Squared's much smaller little brother,  but with an Intel® Atom™ x5-Z8350 Processor (2M Cache, up to 1.92 GHz) CPU with 64 bit architecture; Quad Core CPU. making it actually packing a lot more power.

It has a much smaller form factor than the Squared though, so you'l need an extension system as you only get one usb and 1 hdmi. There's lots of mini connectors for screens and things if you want to make a tablet or something. But to hook up to a network, either go wireless or use a usb with a network adapter.

That Atom CPU comes with integrated Intel graphics and should be able to outperform even the Squared....I say should because as hard as I tried I just couldn't get this board to function properly. Its software is no where near ready and I hit brick wall after brick wall trying to get it to boot up. Then when I did, it refused to compile anything... I'll come back to it soon, but for now, its a pretty neat board, the worlds smallest intel board, and has a lot of promise..but it stays in the drawer of shame till there's an update.
