Hardkernel is updating its ODROID development board with a faster processor, more RAM, and a slightly higher price tag. The ODROID-X2 should be available in late November for $149.

The ODROID-X2 is basically a little ARM-based PC designed for developer that want to test software and hardware to see how it works with Samsung’s Exynos 4412 quad-core processor. But there’s nothing stopping hobbyists from picking one up to use as a home media server, gaming console, or general purpose low-power PC.

ARMDevices.net got a chance to check out the new dev board recently.

The ODROID-X2 feautres a 1.7 GHz Exynos 4412 ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 533 MHz Mali-400 graphics core. That’s an upgrade from the original $129 ODROID-X which had a 1.4 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 400 MHz graphics.

Like its predecessor, the new model also features HDMI and Ethernet jacks, 6 USB host ports, and optional accessories including WiFi and Bluetooth modules.

The device can run Google Android as well as other Linux-based operating systems including Ubuntu.

  1. Can we install Ubuntu on it out of the box and it will really works, or you need some advance knowledge to make it happen?
    Also, how well it will handle running Ubuntu anyway?

  2. Are they going to make a case for this setup, this seems like a better way to go then those droid sticks

    1. That’s what I’m thinking.
      I’d be willing to pay a little more for solid performing hardware.
      I’ll make my own case for it.
