Thumbs up Video : Review of the Rock Pi X - An Intel x86 SBC in Raspberry Pi form factor

Hi all.
I've made a new video about the Rock Pi X.
An x86 SBC in RPi form factor.
It is low powered, has a BIOS so it runs any distro you want without the need for a device tree.
Here is my video :

The SoC is an Intel Atom X5 Z8350 quad core with a base clock of 1.44Ghz. It can run at 1.67Ghz multi-core. And with Turbo on it can do 1.9Ghz single-core.
Best to use a fan with the heatsink to keep it cool. Otherwise it throttles at heavy use.

The board consumes a little less than 10W maxed out. It is powered with USB type-C. But best with PD at 9V to 20V.

Linux runs great on it. Windows has crashes every few hours.
