There is no dearth of single board computers that want a piece of the Raspberry Pi market.

Asus has just launched its own wannabe Pi board called Tinker Board.
The board packs some real punches that will knock Raspberry Pi out of the ring, at least on the specs sheet.
It comes with a slightly more powerful processor, a Rockchip 1.8Ghz quad-core Arm Cortex A17 as compared to 1.7 GHz BCM2837.

The ARM Mali-T764 GPU of the Tinker Board is also more powerful than the Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU used in Raspberry Pi 3.
It comes with twice the amount of RAM, and it has a Gigabit Ethernet vs 100Mb LAN on Pi and audio out for a richer sound with 192k/24 bit sample rate as compared to 48k/16 bit of Raspberry Pi. Last but not the least, Tinker Board has 4K output vs the standard HD output of Raspberry Pi 3.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
