A few days ago on an article, I already talk about a PI size SBC called DFI GHF51 based on AMD chipset with Vega IGPU. but as we are seeing head on head competition between Team RED (AMD) and Team BLUE(Intel) on the full-size computer market. Here also Intel hit back with AAEON PICO-WHU4. But that really not the case.
