The newest iteration of everyone's favorite 'project box' (sorry, Arduino) is out, and it seems to be pretty good across the board.

Here's ETA Prime's thoughts on it, since he's already got his hands on the 2GB version, with a 4GB version in the mail.

I'm perpetually on the fence about getting one, though this may be the push I "need" to finally do so. What I'd do with it, I'm not sure, but I usually vacillate between using it for emulation or setting up a Pi-Hole for my network.
Do both, dude. Even a 3B can handle RetroPie and Pi-Hole simultaneously.
I wish there had been a larger jump in horsepower... I know they can do way better. We need a Pi that can easily tackle N64 and PS1 emulation and last time I checked even the Pi 4 struggled with both of those. It's playable with certain tweaks but still full of hitches and lag.

I would love to see a Pi or other single board solution that has the horsepower to run Dolphin (Wii emulator)!
Technically a NUC is a single board computer ... really technically Big Grin You can get one with RX Vega M graphics. They're eye-wateringly expensive for what they are, though. Intel's "Element" device is intriguing as well, but I can't imagine that being any cheaper.
