Yes, but those are huge-ass compared to a Pi/Pine, and they also use a lot more power - not considering more expensive! You have to add RAM, PSU and storage to it ($$$), and obviously you can't expect to put a microSD on such a system and expect it to be enough in terms of r/w speeds And well... an ATX power-supply is massive, and SFX ones are really expensive...

tl;dr You can now see why everyone likes ARM boards
