New toy! Odroid XU4 :)

I love these computers!

 

This week I recieved a new arm-based computer, An Odroid XU4 from Hardkernel.
This beast have a Samsung big.LITTLE processor with 4 (Cortex A15)+4 (Cortex A7) cores, 2Gb ram, gigabit ethernet, 2 USB3 ports, 1 USB2 port and HDMI out.

Top view. Look at that beautiful blue heatsink!
The size is about the same as an Raspberry Pi.
The case I bought wasn’t that good looking, but it does the job of protecting the motherboard.

My plan is to make this the new host for this site… someday.
But first I´m going to play a little with it.

In the Odroid forum you can find a lot of help and information.

Right now I`m play around a bit with Android and RetroPi.
But soon I hope to start configure WordPress on it.

Some links for more information and other stuff

Hardkernels product page for the XU4.
