Raspberry Pi vs Asus Tinker Board
The Raspberry Pi has a competitor by Asus Tinker Board.
Asus Tinker board is a powerful board highly compatible with current solution and peripherals available in the market and it combines low power consumption with high performance platform.
Asus Tinker board has a quad-core 1.8GHz Rockchip processor, compared to the quad-core 1.2GHz Broadcom processor in the Raspberry Pi 3. It also has 2GB of memory, double that of the Pi 3.
One online benchmark claims the Tinker Board is almost two times faster than the Pi 3 in Geekbench, with Asus’ offering racking up a score of 3925 compared to the Pi’s 2092, as well as being faster when reading from and writing to storage.
While the Pi 3’s processor is based on a 64-bit architecture, compared to the 32-bit based architecture in the Tinker Board, the Tinker Board’s ARM Cortex A17-based chipset has been shown to outperform the Pi 3’s ARM Cortex A53-based chipset in certain tests.
Asus’ offering provides an alternative to Pi users while they wait for a performance upgrade, as the Pi’s co-creator Eben Upton has warned it will likely be at least 2018 before a new Raspberry Pi board is released. He also cautioned against expecting the Pi 3 to get a memory bump in the near future.
The Tinker Board also outstrips the Pi’s specs by supporting 4k video, Gigabit Ethernet and 192kHz/24-bit audio.
