Intel Gemini Lake and Media PC


I am looking at the Arock j4105m-itx board.


This is a simple board with an embedded Celeron CPU and hardware decoders.

The board comes with a multitude of hardware decoders.

Unfortunately I have not been able to find any information regarding the performance of the decoders and linux.

The intent of this board is to act as a simple NAS, SAMBA server and Nextcloud as well as a media center (Kodi, and maybe plex) playing 4k content from a local media library.

Any information on this would be appreciated.
