    Default Khadas Vim 3 A311d

    Thanks to the Khadas Vim team today we can have a look at the New Vim3 A311D (922x on steroids so to speak)
    A311D has 5.0 tops neural engine so its better for the AI stuff.

    From Google:
    A neural processor or a neural processing unit (NPU) is a microprocessor that specializes in the acceleration of machine learning algorithms, typically by operating on predictive models such as artificial neural networks (ANNs) or random forests (RFs).

    So if OK Google or Alexa got hold of this look out

    For those that are New to this type of device.
    Its rather all easy and nothing to be concerned about

    This is a Media player in its Raw/New state and you can do many more things with it if you so desire.
    From Android, to Linux, to LibreELEC and others, just up to your imagination.
    Don't be put of by the Raw state it appears in bits

    Its a PCB, put in a box and its then it becomes a media player, with a few more trix, piece of cake.

    Does all the same features as a Media player, Remote, HDMI, WiFi Ethernet Ram CPU etc etc
    As I mentioned don't be put off, its all the same, maybe better

    So lets have a look see at what we have and put it all together
    Being a Kit form type of thing you will miss the boring Brown box and bubble wrap packaging

    But the actual small black box the PCB is kinda Groovy.

    What we have: All the Bits nearly just waiting for the fan then it will be real Kooler

    Case and Heatsink

    Top Side: 802.11ac WiFi 5 & Bluetooth 5.0

    Bottom Side: M.2 socket for NVMe SSD that will make it zip along and other interesting sockets:

    Fit Thermal Pad: Avoid covering 1R0: heat sink will ride up a little

    Placed in Case: Snug fit WiFi and BT antenna

    All Nice and snug as a bug in a rug

    On with the Lid:

    Ports to be seen:

    Buttons On the Side:

    Power Supply:

    Currently installed with Android 9 first Rom can be a ruff around the edges, updates will be about soon,
    I also feel Superceleron may stick his talent also into one of these. Speculation only.

    More as it happens

    Lots of info can be found at

    Also more information just to keep it real, currently VIM3 ROMs
    The updating of new ROMs will be very soon as the Installed Rom is not the Final release more on this, Also Ubuntu 18.04

    Besides Android Pie and Ubuntu, VIM3 will support more OS by 3rd-party devlopers/team like:
    LibreELEC: Instructions for VIM3

    VIM3 Webpage:
    VIM3 Documentation:
    Khadas Github:
    Khadas Fenix: One-stop script set to build Ubuntu/Debian images

    New Accessories for VIM3: M2X Extension Board
    Interesting & Maker-friendly features which is important for developers but peaple might ignore
    Khadas TST: Enter upgrade even when the boot loader is damaged, just press the function key 3 times within 2 seconds.
    Khadas KBI:

    A311D(VIM3) with excellent performance then other SoC like RK3399 and BCM2711B0(Rpi 4B):

    If Australia is a democracy why, then, is voting compulsory?
