Raspberry Pi is one of the most popular development boards out there. After all, it offers DIY enthusiasts a platform to create simple to complex electronic projects while consuming less time, energy, and money.

Now, a development board that is much more powerful than the newest Raspberry Pi board is set to change the game. Presenting the PICO-WHU4, a compact single-board computer built for AI and Edge computing by AAEON. As compared to Raspberry Pi’s most enhanced offering, the Raspberry Pi 4 that has Quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC, the PICO-WHU4 is equipped with 8th Generation Intel® Core and Celeron® processors that are available in four variants: i7-8665UE (1.7GHz up to 4.4GHz), i5-8365UE (1.6GHz up to 4.1GHz), i3-8145UE (2.2GHz up to 3.9GHz) and 4305UE (2GHz). And it doesn’t stop there.

  • RAM: 16GB (as compared to Raspberry Pi 4 1GB, 2GB or 4GB)
  • Processing speed: 4.45 GHz (Raspberry Pi 4 has 1.5GHz)
  • I/O ports: 4 USB ports (including two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports and two USB 2.0 headers), 2 Ethernet ports and 2 COM headers
  • Cooling option available
  • Power: 12V
  • Operating temperature: 0 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius
