No SSD Storage On Raspberry Pi 3? Try MinnowMax Turbot Board
The fact that you can not use an SSD storage device with the Raspberry Pi is a huge drawback. Devices that use the Raspberry pie consume a lot of storage. Devices like drones etc could use the onboard SSD storage. Too bad that the Raspberry pi 3 does not support it. But no worries have you head of the MinnowMax Turbot board?
The MinnowMax Turbot Dual-E board is a rival to the Raspberry Pi 3 and it does have SSD storage that means all the drawbacks of the Raspberry Pi 3 are not on the MinnowMax Turbot Board. The MinnowMax Turbot Board will have a dual-core Intel Atom E3826 at 1.46GHz or quad-core Atom E3845 at 1.91GHz. A Wi-Fi chip can be slotted into the m.2 slot or you can go for that SSD that you needed. It is up to you.
This will allow the chip to be used in a wide variety of devices. Including but not limited to drones and robots. The MinnowMax Turbot board will have integrated graphics along with 2GB, DDR3 memory, single HDMI port, a pair of ethernet ports and you also get a micro-SD slot. The story does not end there. It will have a USB 2.0 port as well as a USB 3.0 port. Both can be hosts for port expansion.
The MinnowMax Turbot Board will be available in Q3 2016. The board will support Linux, and might also run Windows 10 IoT Core as the previous version of the board met the requirements to do so. We might see windows 10 on this new upcoming board.
