The LattePanda Sigma is one of the most powerful single-board computers money can buy right now. Equipped with a state-of-the-art 13th Gen Intel CPU, 16GB LPDDR5 of RAM, 500GB NVMe storage, two 2.5Gb Ethernet ports, and LattePanda’s low-speed connector, this offering is not only ideal for interfacing with Arduino-compatible modules but also in systems requiring heavy CPU processing.

The PCB is twice as big as a Raspberry Pi 4 but should offer more than four times the computing power. The Sigma shines by providing copious amounts of storage and display ports. It is perfect for a high-end multimedia station supporting transcoding or as a high-performance gaming emulation platform. LattePanda has included a WiFi 6E module which gives twice the throughput of a 1Gb Ethernet connection. The Sigma platform should stay relevant for the next decade.

LattePanda has many similar single-board computers in stock, ranging from its lowly first generation built around a Z8350 CPU to the mighty Sigma. The least expensive board has an MSRP of $105, while a full-fledge Sigma costs $648. This is the embedded board to get if you need a speedy CPU with plenty of high-speed interfaces, storage, and a 32-bit microcontroller.
