The Taiwanese company has released their Raspberry Pi competitor called the Tinker Board that costs around $57 (Php 2840)
No doubt that the Raspberry Pi is so popular, we do even see some cool tech stuff and smart gadgets that is made from it. But, a single board computer (SBC) like this aren’t so powerful like any desktop computers, or consoles which do support high resolution displays as of the moment (only the PS4 Pro has 4K for now #PCMasterRace) because, they aren’t supposedly meant for gaming or viewing high resolution things at all.
But not with the Tinker. It houses a faster CPU and more RAM as compared to the flagship Raspberry Pi 3. Tinker Board has Rockchip RK3288 ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core CPU with ARM Mali-T764 graphics and 2GB of RAM. And when it comes to connectivity you won’t get shorter because it has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 10/100/1000 Ethernet jack, 4 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and a 40-pin header.
Other connectivity options and ports included are 3.5 audio jack, CSI port for camera connection, DSI port with HD resolution support, HDMI port with 4K resolution support, and Micro SD port with UHS-1 support. For power there’s a micro USB port.
According to ASUS, the Tinker Board comes with Debian Linux support and supports Kodi media center.
