One of the leading single-board computer manufacturer freshly released the most powerful x86 mini computer with compatible integrated microcontroller of Arduino. It is the UDOO Bolt V8. The specification of this products is tremendously powerful compared to other mini computers running Intel or ARM based chips.
Bolt V8 model has AMD Ryzen Embedded V1605B processor with integrated Vega 8 Graphics. Whopping Quad core and eight threads running on 2GHz base and 3.6GHz boost clock speed make this computer a hottest bargain in the market. It supports dual channel 2400MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM Memory with ECC support up to 32GB. Super feature of this gem is Vega 8 integrated graphics that can easily run latest game titles on medium or low settings. Amazing small body is fitting the 32GB EMMC storage capacity. Company which created this mini computer is proudly stating that Bolt V8 is a universal single board machine capable of executing 3D rendering, high graphics gaming and cryptocurrency mining.
UDOO Bolt V8 Runs GTA 5 At 720p Normal Settings
In addition to that, prominent Tech Tuber by name ETA Prime just tested this maker board for heavy workloads and games. He threw in several games to test and compare against Ryzen 3 2200G, 3200G, 2400G and 3400G. Results were truly unexpected and shocking to see the 20-30W power draw while perceiving great gaming performance on 720p resolution. For instance, GTA V runs very smooth on 720p normal settings while maintaining 46fps. Project Cars 2 scored 40fps average. Lastly, Doom Vulkan Game grabs 43fps.
To conclude, current CPU competition among AMD, Intel and ARM is the most remarkable advantage for simple consumers. However, AMD is obviously ahead when it comes to high performance single board computers. The secret sauce behind all of these is the integrated Vega graphics that is 150-200% faster than regular Intel UHD 630.
