About a year after launching a single-board computer with an Intel Apollo Lake processor and support for a solid state drive and laptop-style RAM, Gigabyte has a new model.

The only real difference between last year’s GA-SBCAP3350 and this year’s GA-SBCAP3450 is that the new model has a quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 processor rather than a dual-core Celeron N3350 chip.

We’ll probably have to wait a little longer to see models with newer Intel Gemini Lake processors.

Like its predecessor, the new model is a board that measures 5.7″ x 4″ and which has a processor soldered to the motherboard. There’s a DDR3L-1866 SODIMM slot for memory, a mini PCIe slot for an mSATA SSD and another for half-length wireless cards.

It has dual gigabit Ethernet ports, HDMI and VGA ports, two USB 3.1 ports, and internal headers for USB 2.0, GPIO, LPT, I2C, and other connections.

While this board isn’t really designed for consumers, it’s nice to see a small single-board PC that doesn’t rely embedded RAM or slow eMMC storage, allowing customers to choose their own specs.

  1. Can we still call these “Single Board” computers, when they don’t actually have onboard RAM or Storage?

    I always thought the distinction of a SBC was that it could run without any other parts.

  2. Considering Gemini Lake has been around for a while and products with that SoC are available for sale, it’s a bit strange that Gigabyte will release an update to an Apollo Lake product now with another Apollo Lake product.

    1. Stranger still is that this board, like it’s predecessor, will very likely be pretty much non-existent in retail channels. I’ve tried to find the previous version since it’s release without success. The Buy button on Gigabyte’s own web site links to numerous resellers, none of which actually carry this board.

      1. It’s not just retail, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it at any distributors at all.
        I suspect that production was halted early on, or that they had to recall the boards shortly after release.

        1. I get the feeling the retail channel spurned the original model. This update may just be another attempt to at least sell off the stockpile of old boards (or finish the contract with the OEM)
