Good x86 Dev Board
« on: February 01, 2018, 05:25:08 am »
I'm looking for a good, inexpensive x86/AMD64 development board.  Something very small with USB, HDMI, EMMC, SD Card Slot and Wifi.  I'm currently building an arcade bartop with an older ODroid-U3 board and am just considering upgrading.  Just considering options right now.  Would prefer to keep it under $100.  Also looking into newer ARM based boards.

under 100 is complicated, maybe some box with a atom z8300 or something like that

I was looking at some of the NUC boxes.  It's an option.  Also, if I go over budget a little, I may be able to do an older AMD MiniATX board and CPU.  I may have the room in the back of the cabinet but will have to make some modifications.

I think I may just get everything going on the ODroid for now and consider upgrading a bit later.

I have been considering using something like these and just using the guts:

I think the board will fit if I mount it to the back cover of the machine.

If you doing that you could use a laptop too with those same processors and prices. Might even be able to use the laptop screen depending on how you do it. I searched ebay for AMD A4

I have a 13" LCD panel and driver board already.  It may have some big bezels due to the cabinet dimensions though, so I'm considering finding a 17" LCD.  If I can find a cheap 17" laptop, it may be a consideration.
