Is there an x86_64 based thing like the Raspberry Pi?


I was just wondering if there's something around the size of a Raspberry Pi but with an x86_64 processor, not an ARM. Does anything like that exist?

I remember http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...3/#post5687560
Which I found by searching: x86 sbc
Maybe add Pi to search keywords.
Try a google of: intitle:x86 sbc pi

Others will likely chime in with personal SBC experience.

I looked around and UDOO looks pretty good, but It's a lot more than the Raspberry and I'm not sure if it'd do what I want.

Actually I have an old ITX board PC laying around, I need to dust that off, try to get it in working shape and see if there's any sign of life when I plug it in.

I have a Dell Inspiron 3050 micro system. Celeron, 32gb m.2 ssd + cpu fan. It was around 250.00 US from Amazon, but works quite well, came with Windows 10 which I turned into Centos 7.2 it's about 5"x5"x2", Cnet has the specs online here: http://cdn.cnetcontent.com/ab/e3/abe...b9e3bb9f61.pdf

It's quite a bit more than a Pi though, but I'm quite happy with it.

sorry, but why?
5 years ago i'd have understood that question, but nowadays ARM has great linux support, i think most linux distros just have it.

or is there another reason?

Intel has a gizmo they are pushing. Think the box and small kit was on sale the other day for about $58.

minnowboard was one of the earlier sbc's that is x86 based. udoo and others out now. Although most of them are pricey compared to arm and others.

I want to run Solaris on it, not Linux.

Yea Solaris! Please edit #1, your Title (need "Go Advanced" to access Title), to include: For Solaris

What exact capabilities do you want, that UDOO might not have?

Great project!!!

I know it's not a SBC, but is it possible to take an old netbook,
disable the screen (in some way) but use the ethernet/CPU/memory/USB etc?
