  1. Hi all. As regular I was looking for news about a new Odroid. Finally the news arrived. The N2 will have the Amlogic S922X with 4xA73(@1.8Ghz) + 2xA53(@1.9Ghz), a Mali-G52 GPU and 4GB DDR4 RAM. Looks very promising. It should quite a bit faster than the RK3399's. It does have a giant heatsink, so this thing will get very hot I suppose. https://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=176&t=33781&p=245930&hilit=n2#p245930 Please let me know what you all think of this. I find it very interesting. Greetings, NicoD

    Blender results BMW render @ 1080p Odroid N2 @ 1.9Ghz-1.8Ghz Bionic 50m28s NanoPC T3+ @ 8x1.4Ghz Armbian Bionic 1h10m25s The NanoPi M4 @ 1.5Ghz-2Ghz Armbian Bionic 1h13m28s 1.4Ghz-1.8Ghz FriendlyElec Bionic 1h28m13s RockPi 4B @ 1.4Ghz-1.8Ghz Bionic 1h17m22s Odroid C2 @ 1.75Ghz 1104Mhz ram Bionic 2h10m21s 1.5Ghz 912Mhz ram Bionic 2h35m10s Rock64 @ 1.5Ghz Bionic 2h55m56s The difference is huge. The N2 is in a league of it's own here. You can only compare 64-bit with 64-bit OS's with Blender. And Stretch performs a bit worse than Bionic. 7zip is an ok test for cpu only. Blender is good to see the performance for most daily use(cpu+ram).

    Many gimp effects are single core. And that the S922X does good too. I started to think it was overclocked since it was this fast. I also doubted about the clockspeed/performance. But indeed it seems to be real this time. (I would have loved an Odroid C2 @ 2Ghz 2 years ago, but at 1.75Ghz it did very well) It's a bigger performance gain than I imagined for real live tasks that need ram+cpu. I want it so badly, this is going to be so useful. It's got all I need, super fast multi-core, fast single-core and fast ram. I'll look for a 12V power bank for it so I can use it everywhere.

    At what frequencies did you run this test? 1.8-1.9Ghz or 2-2Ghz? That's rather important to know.

    Thank you very much. That's a lot faster than I would have imagined(20 minutes to my previous fastest or 28% faster). I imagined around the hour. Here you see the huge difference in lpddr3-lpddr4. Also you see that it takes a long time to heat up the heatsink fully. I think no airco at all now. So for maxed out bursts of 15/20 minutes it seems fine to run without a fan. But continuous use maxed out will probably need a (small) fan. But this is only when cpu use is always the full 100%. Many software can't utilise the full 100%. For me this will be a render beast. Now I see that the complete package of ram+SoC will be miles ahead to my NanoPi M4. The Rock Pi 4b could do with the same OC as the M4 of 1.5Ghz-2Ghz. That one is almost as fast stock (1.4-1.8Ghz) as the M4 with OC(for render tasks). Also thanks to the lpddr4. I can't wait to get it in my hands. So many test I'd like to do with it. How long does it take for the heatsink to reach it's max temp, How much power does it consume, how's the single core performance in booting software, what OC's are all possible,....... I also wonder if the use of HDMI made the temperature rise. Thank you so much @rooted

    Nice, I can't like posts today, so consider your post liked @balbes150 I agree that we disagree Putting the heatsink direcly on the table without rising it up a bit is indeed not good practice. But I still think it's not bad to have it there. It reaches 52C maxed, so it's more than sufficient, and 52C isn't a danger to the board at all. And to keep the top free for hats and so is also a good argument by @tkaiser. Let's keep it at this, I don't want to become a lower-heatsink fundametalist Cheers

    Your words a while ago... "I don't think the board makers would do their own chips based on RISC-V - the costs to fab a chip are very high, and most of the board vendors in the Armbian space are low margin.." You might have to eat your words one day. I don't know if they've got plans for it, not quickly I assume. It's not ready at all, but the help from the foundation is very good. But one thing doesn't mean the other(in supporting RISC-V doesn't mean quickly adapting) But I'm very interested to see. I would love it...

    If you have the time and willpower. Could you also do a Blender render? https://download.blender.org/demo/test/BMW27_2.blend.zip Download that file, unzip. Open Blender, open the file that has cpu in it(instead of gpu). Then just click render. It will take an hour. I use a program that notes the temp during the test. But if you could check along the end. Then I know the max temperature for that.(I use this temperature to compare boards, max-load isn't always the same temp with every program) Also the version of Blender I'd need to know. Blender is a good test because it's using all cores at maximum, and ram speed is also a big factor. So this should be close to 1hour I think. No worries if you ain't got the time.

    Thank you for that. It seems like I thought it would be. Quite a bit faster than the NanoPi M4 @ 1.5-2Ghz, but no giant step. Temperatures seem very good, I wonder if they're using a fan. 52°C for cpu miner at 100% is good. In CPU-Miner it even beats the octa-core NanoPC T3+. This uses 100% of all cores. In 7-zip it does a bit worse than the NanoPC T3+. (Only decompression I use) But the T3+ has a higher percentage useage of the cores (795% of 800% - 543% of 600%). So actually they are about equal. That means that the N2 actually is faster than the T3+. T3+ uses 99% of it's cores, the N2 90%. So the (10254 / 100) * 90 = 9321.81 would the T3+ get with the same % useage as the N2. Compression numbers are more useless, only 625% of 800% vs 543% of 600%. So you can not use the totals in 7-zip. I find decompression the most value of 7-zip. Here a list with sbc's I've benchmarked.

    Quote from the article. @balbes150 "A lot of clueless people (me included) think/thought heat would be rising. It doesn't, it just radiates in all directions while only hot/warm air rises. As such having the huge heatsink at the bottom isn't that much of an issue (personally tested with ODROID HC1 which uses exactly the same design of having the SoC on the bottom PCB side directly attached to a giant heatsink below" "Combining this huge heatsink with a cheap plastic cover creates a full enclosure able to efficiently dissipate the heat to the outside unlike RPi inspired 'cooling solutions' where the SoC is on the wrong PCB side and also inside the enclosure making efficient heat dissipation nearly impossible." @JMCC Thanks for the link.

    Daily (tech related) news diet

    It is already like that for a while. I for example can't upload any travel video's of mine if I put famous music onto it. It's blocked immediatly. Some artists do allow it, but you've got to know which ones. When there's money exchanged and 3rd partys earn, yes, Youtube must pay the content makes, since they create the revenue for Youtube. When cd's are sold, yes the artist must earn. But why should you have to pay for an mp3 what's just data. Nobody loses money and nobody gains money. When you play a gig, then the organiser earn money, so the musician should earn too. I do not agree with that. I find this counterproductive, and there so much abuse because of it. Products that are sold for 10x what's it worth. Certainly in medicine it's very bad. Pharma extorts people and goverments with medicine prices. Many times public money payed for the research, and universities done the work. Still the patent goes to some pharma company who missuses it. Knowledge should be public for everybody to know/learn. imo. .... I do not really get how you come upon that. I'm always nice to everybody even when opinions differ. I love to talk to people with another view. And politicians who call others stupid and blame everyone except themselfs for problems that don't even excist do get elected. We've got them in the Belgian goverment, and many other countries too. Like the orange man in the start of your last post. You can't make good compromises with extremists.

    I can't see any use for this law. Tech companies don't want it, the people don't want it. Only the politicians want it, why? So we wouldn't laugh with them anymore or what? No idea. I do not understand memes(maybe too old, or just too autistic to understand it), so I don't use it. So that's no problem for me.(I do think everybody must be free to do so) I'm a content creator and musician. I don't care my content and music is being used. My music is listened too in Russia, on sites where I didn't add it. No idea how, who and why it got there. But I don't care, I like it that people are interested in it. Nobody in Belgium is... My videos are copied to Chinese websites, I don't get views for that. I don't care. I think people are just too greedy, and think of rules how they can have more. You've seen it with the music business when MP3's became a thing. Miljionaires like Metallica who feared they'd have a million less, so they'd better sue Napster. For musicians who are not famous free music is the easiest way to be picked up. So they do better with mp3's and free music. I want money when I play live music, I think that's normal. But when music is played digitally, then I don't see how I could own that. Music must be free to listnen to for everybody in my opinion. It may not be something only for the "rich" who can pay for it. The same with all art/knowledge. In my opinion copyrights and patents are for the most very bad. They slow down/stop creativity, innovation, the growing of talent, .... But I'm mostly alone in most of my opinions, so they don't matter much... @chwe good read. Tnx for the info, I'm not very aware of all those things. PS. In Belgium we're bussy demonstrating for the climate, so it's up to the rest of Europe to demonstrate against this.

    Pine H64 Model B

    Still no real specs. TL told me that it in the beginning of Februari would be sold(2nd week). But still nothing has changed on the website. Here a announcement with picture of the H64. https://liliputing.com/2019/02/pine64s-single-board-computers-are-getting-2019-upgrades-prices-still-start-at-25.html I also made a video about it and the other new products they'll bring out. You can buy it here on Amazon.de. https://www.amazon.de/Pine-H64-3GB-Board-Modell/dp/B07BYXB173/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 The board does look good, I like the model b a lot more than model a. I hope there's quickly going to be good software for it so I can test it well.

    USB connected monitor with NanoPi M4

    You can't use standard rpi displays. FriendlyElec sells displays for their boards. Read the wiki to know which is right for you. Why the nanopi m4? There are a lot more compact boards with mini hdmi that are 1/10th the size and weight of the NanoPi M4. FriendlyElec has got the NEO's are Fire's. All compact and very powerful. There's for example the Banana Pi M2 Zero. The same size as a raspberry pi zero, but with 4-cores. Maybe you are not choosing the right tool for the job. Is is for entertainment? Or do you want it to control things or so? The RK3399 needs a big heatsink to be able to have a good performance, so that add's a lot of weight. Otherwise you can run it underclocked a lot so it doesn't throttle.

    Announcement : Odroid N2

    That works great with Blender for 3d. My NanoPc T3+ is best for that. For big renders I've used the T3+, Tinker and Odroid C2 together. Still took a long time for 30 seconds of 3d video in 1080p(2d). But I wouldn't want my pc to be occupied for that long. So it's great to be able to do. But I don't use Blender that often anymore. It's more for video rendering with Kdenlive I use them(and many other things). Also when traveling I use it to edit/render my travel images and put it online. All with solar energy. sbc's are awesome for that. energy efficient but still very powerful. The C2 did 10minutes video in 720p in 55minutes rendering. The RK3399's do 10min in 1080p in 40minutes. So every step up in performance is great for me. Now I want 1440p with an SBC. But the N2 I'll probably never take along on trips. Too big and bulky, and i's not 5V. For now the RockPi4B is my first choice with RK3399 and 4GB lpddr4. Certainly the ram speed makes a big difference. The N2 will be for at home to offload render task from my pc, or to play games while my pc renders. And I need to be able to watch 4K h.256 since my pc can't handle it.(i5 2500K ->too old)

    USB connected monitor with NanoPi M4

    They've enabled it in Android a while ago. I think I red somewhere it was also enabled with FriendlyDesktop, but can't find it anymore. "18.2 2018-11-12 Android 8.1 update is as follows: 1) Add support for USB-C display"

    Pine H64 Model B

    There are a few differences between both boards. It's like saying that an Audi car is the same as a BMW because they have the same engine(I know nothing about cars). I've got the PineH64 model B here, but I don't have a complete overview of the specs yet. What I can say is OPi has LPDDR3 ram up to 2GB, while the PINE H64 has got LPDDR4 up to 3GB. The OPi has got room for a smd eMMC module, while the Pine has got a eMMC socket so you can remove it. The OPi has got 4xUSB3.0 ports while the Pine64 only has one USB3 + 2 USB2 ports. I don't know if there is only on USB3 root hub or multiple. So could be that the 4xUSB3 on the OPi are just over the same hub what makes both OPi/Pine as fast. The Opi also has got USB2.0. The Pine H64 is a lot more compact. It is way too early to say if these boards will have good support for everything you want. You'd be better buy something that's know to have all that instead of one of these. It will take months, and it is to see how many people want to develop for it. For now all I have is a very badly working Android image, and a Armbian Bionic that only works when I dissable all networking. But that's not very useful at all. It is a very nice board tho. 9/10 for looks The OPi is also on the way, should have been here a while ago. But they didn't send before Chinese Newyear, so only this week it's departed. Great I've got the PineH64 now. (thank you @Humberg )

    Announcement : Odroid N2

    Some 7zip benchmarks. I always do this with all my sbc's, so I know how they compare to each other. Left they compare it with the N1( @balbes150 not my fault ) I look to decompression, the NanoPi M4 does this in betweeen 6500 and 8500(armhf no oc, arm64 with oc) The best I had until now for this task was the NanoPi T3+(8x1.4Ghz) reached 10100. That seems to be the result with the "default" clock of the N2. But with OC of 6x 2Ghz it even goes over 11000. All just numbers that I can't confirm if they've been generated right. But an indication of what we can expect. For this 7-zip benchmark the ram speed has no big influence. I would like to see what blender does. That's 100% cpu useage + ram speed. In Blender this will blow everything away(I think). I just got the new Pine H64 and the OPi3 on the way. So these will have to fill the hole this announcement has created. I'm just crazy about fast SoC's for rendering.

    USB connected monitor with NanoPi M4

    I do not think this is possible with the M4. With the T4 this should be possible over the USB-C. The M4 it's USB-C is over USB2. It's there mostly to power the board.

    RockPi 4b 'board bring up'

    Try a USB3 hub. I've also had stabillity problems with multiple devices. A USB3 hub fixed it for me.
