LattePanda 3 Delta offers 2x better processing performance and 3x faster graphics performance. With such excellent performance, you can use it to watch 4K HDR videos smoothly and even play some heavy games. 

LattePanda 3 Delta contains up to 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64 GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage, which ensures that you can load a large number of web pages in Chrome, or run multiple virtual machines fastly and smoothly.

LattePanda 3 Delta uses Wi-Fi 6 whose transfer speed is 2.7 times faster than Wi-Fi 5. Besides, LattePanda 3 Delta has a Gigabit Ethernet port onboard. You can connect to the Internet at extremely high speed.

LattePanda 3 Delta is compatible with both Windows 10 and Linux OS. Windows 11 can also be run on LattePanda 3 Delta. You can select various OS freely based on your project. No matter what operating system you use, the blue screen or crash is inevitable. LattePanda 3 Delta designs a “Watchdog Timer”. When some problems occur, LattePanda 3 Delta will restart automatically and go back to work normally.

For those applications relying on battery, independent control of the power of all the USB ports and other power connectors are essential. LattePanda 3 Delta has made it possible. You can control the USB power and 5V power ON or OFF based on your project
