DragonBoard 820c Is The World’s First Computer Based On Snapdragon 820


Short Bytes: DragonBoard 820c is a powerful board computer that’s based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chip. It’s a superfast chip that comes loaded with Adreno 430 and 32GB onboard storage. Just like its predecessor DragonBoard 410c, DragonBoard 820c too is expected to run Android, Linux, and Windows 10 IoT Core. Currently, the pricing and release date of the board in unavailable.

Due to Moore’s Law limitations, chip makers won’t be able to shrink the sizes of the chips for much longer. But it isn’t going to stop the hardware manufacturers from making board PCs that are capable of performing tasks equivalent to regular PCs. For example, just recently, we came across Asus TinkerBoard.

Today, I’m going to tell you about a powerful board computer that can blow Raspberry Pi 3 out of the water. I’m talking about DragonBoard 820c, the first computer based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chip. It isn’t available for purchasing yet, but it’s listed on Arrow Electronics website.

Talking about the specifications, it’s blazing fast, supports 4K graphics, and comes loaded with a variety of features. This makes it a perfect choice for creating powerful projects, robots, drones, etc.

Compared to Raspberry Pi 3, DragonBoard 820c also wins on the storage front. It comes pre-loaded with 32GB on-board storage. The other features of DragonBoard 820c are 3GB LPDDR4 RAM, USB 2.0 and 3.0, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and gigabit ethernet. It also has an Adreno 530 GPU.

DragonBoard 820c is a powerful successor of DragonBoard 410c, which supports Android, Windows 10 IoT, and Linux. While Arrow says that DragonBoard 820c is compatible with Android, the instructions to install Linux are available online.

Currently, we don’t have the pricing details of DragonBoard 820c. For more details, you can visit this link.
