Logic Supply has informed Softpedia about the upcoming availability of a new member of the ever-growing family of the company's industrial PCs, the CL100, which is set to be unveiled during the Digital Signage Expo 2016.
Delivered in a new, small form factor, the CL100 industrial computer is fanless and ventless, just like most of the industrial PCs manufactured by Logic Supply, thus preventing ingress from various airborne debris like dust. It contains no moving parts, and it is mostly targeted at digital signage applications, offering users the possibility of installing either the popular Ubuntu Linux or Microsoft Windows operating systems.
Yesterday's Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmarks vs. Eight Other ARM Linux Boards was quite interesting while today I have a complementary data point: the Raspberry Pi 3 compared to the ODROID-C2. The ODROID-C2 costs just a few dollars more ($40 USD) while having a faster SoC and other advantages.
In continuation of yesterday's Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmarks vs. Eight Other ARM Linux Boards, here are a few more details about the Raspberry Pi 3's thermal performance.
As pointed out in that Raspberry Pi 3 benchmarking article yesterday and has been pointed out elsewhere, this quad-core Cortex-A53 ARM development board does get rather warm under load. However, there is no heatsink at all by default with the RPi3.
