The Odyssey X86J4105 also comes with Arduino compatibility and 8GB of RAM.

According to Global Market Insights, the single-board computer market is projected to be worth $1bn by 2025. That’s a lot of money for palm-sized computers.

But there’s more to the single-board market than variations of Raspberry Pi’s and if you’ve got a bit extra in your pocket, you might consider the Odyssey X86J4105.

Technical specs

  • Intel® Celeron® J4105, Quad-Core 1.5-2.5GHZ

Straight off the bat, the Odyssey X86J4105 comes with a quad-core processor capable of speeds up to 2.5 GHz alongside 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM. You also get Arduino and Raspberry Pi compatibility.

The series comes in two different models:

As you can see, the X86J4105800 model doesn’t come with any storage but you can add your own using its SATA III connector, microSD card slot and two M.2 ports.

Windows 10 support

I’m a Mac user but I use Windows 10 at work. My base unit is a lot bigger and more powerful (just) so this is pretty awesome.

The X86J4105864 with Windows 10 pre-installed will be the go-to choice and a great small computer to use for all kinds of mini-projects.

4K support

According to Seeedstudio, the X86J4105800 supports DisplayPort 1.2a and can output in up to 4K at 60 Hz over DisplayPort or HDMI.

Price

The Odyssey X86J4105 has been deemed as a “Raspberry Pi alternative” but at $188 (for the X86J4105800), it’s far from it in terms of price. The X86J4105864 costs more at $218 and the model with Windows 10 will set you back $258.

Would you be better off getting something cheaper? Maybe. Single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi 4, Odroid C2, and Banana Pi all support 4K for a lot less. And the LattePanda can run Windows 10.

Where you can buy an Odyssey X86J4105

The number one place to buy an X86J4105 is from Seeedstudio themselves but if you’re in Poland or mainland Europe, you can grab one from Botland.
