odroid XU

It is a new generation of computing device with more powerful, more energy-efficient hardware and smaller form factor. Offering open source support, the board can run various flavours of Linux, including Ubuntu and the Android 4.2. By adopting e-MMC 4.5 and USB 3.0 interface, the ODROID-XU boasts fast data transfer speed, a feature that is increasingly required to support advanced processing power on ARM devices that allows users can fully experience an upgrade in computing such as faster booting, web browsing and 3D game experience.

The world’s first big.LITTLE architecture based bare-board computer. The basic package includes a XU board, a plastic case, an active cooler and 5V/4A PSU. You need additional MicroSD card or an eMMC module to install the OS. We strongly recommend eMMC module for much higher performance boosting.

Exynos5 Octa, the world’s first ARM? big.LITTLE™ architecture based on the Cortex-A15™ CPU The Exynos5 Octa features an unprecedented eight-core ARM? big.LITTLE™ architecture based on the Cortex-A15™ CPU, technology built for efficient handling of multitasking abilities. 

The Exynos5 Octa is the world's first mobile application processor to implement the new concept of processing architecture, big.LITTLE™, based on the Cortex-A15™ CPU to offer optimal core use. By housing a total of eight cores to draw from—four powerful Cortex-A15™ cores for processing-intense tasks along with Cortex-A7™ quad cores for lighter workloads—the Exynos5 Octa enables mobile devices to achieve maximum performance. This approach offers up to 70 percent energy saving when performing various tasks, compared to using Cortex- A15™cores only. 

Exynos5 Octa is manufactured using Samsung's latest 28-nanometer (nm) HKMG (High-k Metal Gate) low power process and power-saving design, which increases the power efficiency of the processor by minimizing the static current leakage. It clearly demonstrates 70% better CPU performance, while consuming 20 percent less power than the previous extremely successful and popular Exynos processors.

• PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU (OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenGL ES 1.1 and OpenCL 1.1 EP)
• 2Gbyte LPDDR3 RAM PoP
• USB 3.0 Host x 1, USB 3.0 OTG x 1, USB 2.0 Host x 4
• HDMI 1.4a output Type-D connector
• eMMC 4.5 Flash Storage

The Exynos5 Octa inside the ODRIOD-XU board includes the Imagination’s PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU.
The developers can now access the OpenGL ES 2.0 and the OpenCL EP stack, which allows them to create new and
compelling applications.

The full OpenCL EP stack and OpenGL ES 2.0 APIs allow developers to enhance visual effects in games, user
interfaces or AR applications.
