Developer Forum IDF 2016, held in San Francisco from 16 to 18 August 2016 leaves us plenty of interesting news ... and many have starring the company Intel . Intel used this forum to launch the Intel development kit Joule.
What is Intel Joule? As it is a new developers kit very similar in concept to what we offer different versions of the Raspberry Pi. It consists of a processor with a motherboard with different ports. This kit allows us to develop and test concepts, such as use the REALSENSE capabilities.
As planned by the manufacturer, Intel Joule is ideal for development test in the field of robotics, augmented reality or virtual reality, in addition to being applied to other fields such as the Internet of things and similar areas .
It seems that initially will have two versions of Intel Joule. First, we have the Joule Intel 550x, which includes a quad core Atom processor T5500 at 1.5 GHz with 3 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal flash memory.

Secondly we have the Joule Intel 570x, which includes an Atom processor 4 núclesos T5700 1.7 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal flash memory.
Both have support for Intel REALSENSE, Wi-Fi (802.11ac), graphics 4K cameras and operating system based on Linux (Ubuntu).
The Intel Developer Kit Joule will be available in the fourth quarter of 2016. According to initial information, the Intel 570x Joule will cost about $ 369. change are about 350 euros, which in our opinion do quite expensive. If we take into account the different alternatives that we are in the market.
Intel wants to take a bite in the business of Raspberry Pi. It seems that is far from achieving such high prices.
