    TonyMac32 got a reaction from gounthar in ROC-RK3399-PC (Renegade Elite)   
    Potentially a WIP/csc until Armbian in general properly supports rk3399.  This isn't so much a libre computer issue as it is a u-boot/kernel issue, all Rockchip boards with high-spec ram have been a challenge to support because the Rockchip binary blobs aren't so great sometimes.  I have this board, I can test any PR's in the meantime while I clean up some other stuff

    Here with round shapes. There's a black part on the feet that need to be colored. With the rounded one the eyes should be a little bit smaller.
    I also like it. Tomorrow I'll also try to make a sky background.

    I almost think you should maintain some hard angularity to it, as the 2D.  Very nice though!

    I have one in the mail, was told the Armbian H64 image works except for Ethernet, I'm guessing there's a small hardware difference that needs reflected in DTS.  Or I'm completely wrong, until I can see, I cannot know.

    Haha. I still need to do that thermal comparison between factory, my Frankenstein above, and the nice case they sent me. It is far superior to the factory cooler, although it would still throttle in your situation.

    That's the only reasonable way to do something stressful with an RK3288.  I'd add GPIO powering on top of that to be sure, since it not thermal throttling presents challenges for everything else in the system that might not have anticipated pulling 15 Watts for over an hour.

    I have found what's going wrong.
     
    tinkerboard register the interfaces in this files /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rule
    When the eth0 is already used, the next mac adress takes eth1.
     
    So the solution: delete this files /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rule

    TonyMac32 reacted to lanefu in Tritium H5 and Le Potato actually usuable as a desktop   
    So I built some fresh Armbian images with dev kernels, and setup ubuntu mate and ran them on my tritium h5, and my le potato... and like I've got slack running in chromium n stuff, and desktop switching is pretty decent... and that's without acceleration.. just good 'ole brute force.
     
    Basically my mind is blown that its usable and I'm going to retire my c2d dell desktop that's on my KVM and finally use an ARM SBC as a desktop!

    350 had plenty of problems, it's biggest strength was how cheap it was. The Mopar 318/340/360 was/is a far better engine series.
    @Tido@chwe next time say $6. :-P

    The thing I see with the V3s is the fact that it appears to be in the same price arena as the H3, and without full vdec/venc/camera support it doesn't have a single benefit over the H3 or a decent micro (esp32, etc)

    Indeed.  Had failure of idiotic plastic thermostat housing (replaced with Aluminum), then the timing chains flew out the side and bent a bunch of valves at 117k (miles).  The shortest lived engine I've ever had in an American car (I had a Stratus, but I may have crashed it)
     
    To be fair to Cologne, the pushrod version of the engine was far better, but the weird fetish with overhead cams was it's undoing.  I'm swapping in a 5.0L V8 from an Explorer, since they were the same vehicle from the drivers seat forward it will be extremely easy, the donor vehicle with the engine in it costs about as much as a new head for that V6...  I agree the LS is solid, but the GM people are too insufferable, I can't do that to the Ford.  If a Dodge 318 fit in there, I'd gladly do that, the community would give me a high five for something different...

    TonyMac32 got a reaction from NicoD in Advice on new SBC device   
    I can't help but think this will be a cyclical issue for that community then, he is far too sentimental (tunnel vision perhaps), and the platform is far too closed hardware wise.  Typical market forces will render them noncompetitive over and over as they cling to the familiar.
     
    As always, the "open source platform" would be on a non-distributor SoC with a most likely closed source VC5, with all the typical paywalls up to be "permitted" to use the HEVC/etc.  Since Eben was willing to hide his camera tuning behind DRM on the VC4 devices, I can only imagine the uses for the improved security core... 
     
    Again, not a problem, except they sit their in their tiny little hardware sandcastle with the tide coming in and claim to build unquestionably superior supercomputers.
     
     
    I was a lot less sarcastic on this topic before I started reading their forums and seeing the excuses they give for basic lacking functionality, the technical 1/4 truths, some outright deception, hiding behind "millions sold" numbers instead of engaging technical questions...  The GbE one was too much, their assertion was that achieving 30% Gb throughput was irrelevant since it was attached to the network at GbE bit rates.  That's like me putting 300 kph rated tires on a Lada Riva and claiming to compete with Ferrari because the physical contact between the car and the street was capable of high speed operation...  (to be fair, the Lada may be more reliable than a Ferrari...  )

    Since the last round of Moronix madness didn't include a single RK3399 device I decided to give two rounds of silly kitchen-sink benchmarking a try using the 'reputable' Phoronix Test Suite:

    For those thinking the N2 results would be better when running bare metal... I doubt it since of course I checked with sbc-bench first:
    here's running sbc-bench on 'ODROID Bench' inside a container: http://ix.io/1BEM and there's the results Dongjin (@tobetter) shared with me few days ago (look at the timestamp, Hardkernel tested already weeks ago so they were pretty clear about which benchmark results to publish and which not): http://ix.io/1BsF The ODROID-N1 numbers are representative for each and every RK3399 device out there running at 2.0/1.5GHz with CONFIG_HZ=250. Scores might improve once Rockchip provides new DRAM initialization BLOBs especially on those boards using LPDDR4.

    Interesting post, 4.20 is not supported, and I have a potato that I boot up periodically without issue, so perhaps this has to do with some additional hardware you have attached. 
     
    You've been around long enough to know you need to provide an armbianmonitor -u link.

    Funny place here...
     
    All the RK3399 'benchmark' results collected so far were done with CONFIG_HZ=1000 (good for a responsive UI in Android and Linux, not so good for normal computing or server tasks) while everywhere around CONFIG_HZ=250 is the default. Is this affecting Blender or not? Anyone tested so far (latest ayufan images switched to CONFIG_HZ=250)? Anyone into Active Benchmarking instead of just firing up the next round of kitchen-sink benchmarks in fire-and-forget mode collecting more numbers without meaning? The challenge with 'overclocking' the N2 is not trottling but stability/reliability as can be easily seen with the cpuminer tests that are sufficient for reliability testing (see N2 notes here). The DVFS OPP are defined in a closed firmware BLOB and the whole thing happens on the Cortex-M3 inside S922X. N2 has no LPDDR4 but DDR4, memory performance depends not just on type of memory but on DRAM initialization (done with BLOBs on both RK3399 and S922X). TL Lim said Rockchip will provide a new BLOB to make use of faster LPDDR4 access on RockPro64 in 2018 but I don't know whether this has already happened or not Memory benchmark scores depend on stuff like dmc or CONFIG_HZ since how would you explain better memory performance when switching from CONFIG_HZ=1000 to CONFIG_HZ=250 on RK3399 (previously known as difference between RK's 4.4 kernel and mainline though it's just different CONFIG_HZ defaults). Same with executing a memory benchmark on a little vs. big core Memory bus width is different between S922X and RK3399 (32-bit vs. 64-bit) but whether this will result in faster execution depends on a lot of factors (application in question, DRAM initialization BLOB, kernel settings, kernel tunables, see dmc memory governor with RK3399, and so on)
