    This mini PC looks like the Raspberry 4 but costs 26 times its price


    The Raspberry Pi 4 can be defined by its price but also by its format. Here, there is no question of the price because the PICO-TGU4 costs 26 times the price of a Raspberry Pi 4. It is more a question of the very compact format of this mini PC.

    The Raspberry Pi has revolutionized computing. This ARM-based nanocomputer has democratized access to information because of the price, a few tens of euros, as well as the ecosystem that has been set up around it. This market is of interest to other companies, including Aaeon who has just presented the PICO-TGU4, a mini PC which at first glance seems to be very similar to the RPi. However, it actually only shares its “raw design”.

    From 900 euros for Core i5

    This mini PC uses 11th generation Intel Core processors and up to 32GB of RAM, making it real beasts compared to the RPi. It is also very expensive, the Core i5 version costs around 900 euros. We can potentially buy 26 Raspberry Pi 4 for that amount of money.

    Appearances are therefore deceptive. On a few centimeters, we can find an M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 port which allows you to connect both SSDs and “IA accelerators”, and also a “Mini Card” slot which can be used to add additional storage. , Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The card, moreover, has a TPM 2.0 chip, which will theoretically allow to install Windows 11.

    We have two Ethernet ports (one 2.5 GbE and one 1 GbE) and two USB-A ports with USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface, but they are connected by six other USB connections (including two USB 3.2 Gen 1 and four other USB 2.0 ) on the motherboard. We also have two unique RS-232 serial ports and a headphone jack, an 8-bit GPIO port and an I2C / SMBUS port to further expand the versatility of connectivity.

    A mini PC not to be put in all hands, however it can help create a small efficient server or a minimalist workstation.
