It is primarily meant to be an affordable AI + robotics development, prototyping and education platform for developers but can it be used as a powerful Kodi media player on Linux?

Could this budget Nvidia SBC with its Nvidia Tegra type SoC and GPU be a Raspberry Pi 4 killer Kodi media player users and RetroPlayer gamers will want?

Basically a mini single board computer version of an Nvidia Shield TV but meant for Linux instead of Android TV operating-system.


Worldwide pre-orders are open on sites like Amazon, Seeed Studio and others, with shipping scheduled to start at the end of the month.
