AAEON PICO-WHU4 an alternative of PI With Intel 8th Gen SOC and 16GB RAM.

A few days ago on an article, I already talk about a PI size SBC called DFI GHF51 based on AMD chipset with Vega IGPU. but as we are seeing head on head competition between Team RED (AMD) and Team BLUE(Intel) on the full-size computer market. Here also Intel hit back with AAEON PICO-WHU4. But that really not the case.

The AAEON PICO-WHU4 board is way more powerful than other same size boards but also it’s quite expensive which will cost you almost $800. so this board is not for everyone but for those who need a powerful computer for carrying everywhere they should go for it.

My name is Biplab Das. I’m a writer, Blogger, Youtuber and full time IT support engineer whose childhood obsession with science fiction never quite faded. A quarter-century later, the technology that I coveted as a kid is woven into the fabric of everyday life. I’ve spent the past years to learn these technologies, I recently published a book on computer science fundamentals. People say smartphones are boring these days, but I think everyone is beginning to take this wonderful technology marvel for granted.
Keep Digging Technology.
