Hidden underneath the mass of news is a new small Pico-ITX based SoC motherboard from GIGABYTE, the GA-PICO3350. Smaller than the latest iPhone 11 smartphone, the GIGABYTE GA-PICO3350 is 100 x 72 mm and includes an Intel Celeron N3350 Apollo Lake SoC processor, with a single SO-DIMM DDR3L slot, and a Realtek ALC887 HD audio codec.

Slightly larger than a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, the new Pico-ITX sized GIGABYTE GA-PICO3350 is based on Intel's Apollo Lake SoC with an Intel Celeron N3350 dual-core processor which has a base core frequency of 1.1 GHz, with a burst frequency of 2.4 GHz with a TDP of just 6 W. Users can install up to 8 GB of DDR3L-1866 memory into the single SO-DIMM slot, with a single SATA port and single MSATA PCIe connector. The Realtek ALC887 HD audio codec offers two-channels over the front panel header. It also includes plenty of other connectors including a serial port header, an LCDVVC/MON, an LVDS, GPIO, SMBus, and battery cable header.

On the rear panel are a single DC power input, an HDMI port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and a single Ethernet port powered by an unknown Realtek Gigabit Ethernet controller. The GIGABYTE GA-PICO3350 does include a single M.2 slot on the PCB for users wishing to install a wireless interface which does share bandwidth with the MSATA PCIe connector.

Currently, there is no pricing and availability information available for GIGABYTE's GA-PICO3350, but we did locate it for sale without a price on German etailer Rosch Computer's website.

    That is basically the same platform as a chromebook from a year or 2 back. put that in a simple case and it would easily work for most sinage displays, print servers. I personally wonder how it performs up against a Pi 3+ or 4, for a retro console. Reply

    We had a signage display running on an Atom at work that stuttered constantly on the news crawl at the bottom. I replaced it with an ancient Core 2 laptop and it works so much better now. Reply

    I hope they win. Intel knows anticompetitive when they see it. If all the big companies did this patent trolls would fold up shop. Reply
