    NicoD reacted to sfx2000 in Announcement : Odroid N2   
    Would be interesting to see how it competes with Jetson Nano with a good power supply...
     
    Jetson has a fairly large heatsink, but it's generally cool to the touch right now with 2.5A over MicroUSB - 5 amp Power Supply is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, and then we can turn up the Jetson clocks and see what it can really do...
     
    (Jetson Nano under full load can easily consume 20w when doing GPU compute tasks - not too much different than Google Coral)

    Hi all.
    I've made a new review video about the Odroid N2.
    It an amzaing beast of an SBC. But it ain't perfect for everyone.
    Geetings, NicoD.

    @NicoD; Thanks for all the info. I think I made the decision to go for the M4.

    Hi. You seem to have done your homework well. Those are indeed all the most powerful boards.
    But other needs are important too. Like how much ram do you need, is power efficiency an issue? Does your task scale well over multiple cores? What voltage do you want it to use?
     
    For example when ram isn't that important you could go for the smaller NanoPi NEO4 with the same Soc as the M4, but only 1GB ram. But good cooling is needed with that.
    The NEO3 is even a bit more powerful with 8 cores of 1.4Ghz. But single core performance is a lot worse. Power consumption is then again better than the RK3399's. There's also the NanoPC T3+ with that SoC, but a bigger footprint and 2GB ram.
    The Odroid N2 is the most powerful of all in CPU power. It does need a higher voltage than the others. It's very new and not super stable yet. But I've tried a new Armbian image today on it and it seems to be better than anything else for it. Too early to know.

    The H6's are pretty powerful for a quad-core sbc. Also very new and software isn't ready. It needs sufficient cooling to get the most out of it, but it's doable. I see the PineH64 model b becomming a good board. but that has 2.4Ghz wifi vs 5Ghz wifi of the Orange Pi3.

    I've got most of those boards. And the overall best board is the NanoPi M4 for me. Very fast, stable, good Armbian software, great connectivity. It does consume the most of all when maxed out.
    Or the Odroid XU4 is also a very powerful board, octa-core. But hard to cool.
    I hope that helps.

    For some tasks the T3+ is faster. But only tasks that scale well over multiple cores like Blender. Most applications don't do that well and prefere a better single core performance. I indeed menth the Fire3. Too many names. That should be the most powerful for a low price, but indeed not much usb ports.

    You mentioned the Atomic Pi. Could be a valible option. It's cheap, x86 and very fast for that price.

    I once made a list of benchmarks of most of my sbc's. It is confusing since there ain't no perfect benchmark tools(and I wanted to show discrepencies). But it gives an idea of what you can expect.
    7 zip, single core scores are important(small core-big core). Multi-core doesn't give exact results(not 100% se). Igrnore gtkperf, gimp and sysbench. I only used that to show it was useless.
    The H3 performs a bit worse than the Rock64 at 1.3Ghz. I should have added one, I've got enough of them but don't like them much except for light data server.

    You can  perform the 7-zip tests yourself on the H3. Install p7zip-full, then
    7z b   (multicore test)
    sudo taskset c 0 7z b (single core)
    I only use decompression numbers since I do not want to mix compression with decompression and get a number of nothing.

    I also still think the M4 is the best choice. The only sbc that never had issues, and I use it daily.

    The output now shows that gl4es wrapper and mali drivers are being used. Now, since it is just a wrapper, it's possible that some functions are not implemented, or do not exist at all in the GLES 2 API.
     
    Another option to play that game could be using this fork for GLES: https://github.com/meveric/extremetuxracer

    I thought this was fixed(haven't checked in a while). You can add the resolution manually.
    Here an example for 1080p. Change what's needed for your monitor.
    sudo cvt 1920 1080 60 Then you get something like : # 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync Everything after modeline you need to copy and past it behind : sudo xrandr -- newmod e Example : sudo xrandr -- newmod e "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync Then : sudo xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 1920x10 80_60.00 sudo xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080_60.00

    That's the reason. It updates to new libEGL and breaks the symlink to libmali. If for some reason the new lib is installed you have to manually re-create the symlinks, or just don't update.

    Yeah. The bycicle is still the most efficient vehicle mankind ever evented. But it uses our own our own energy for it. But a lot more efficient than running. Not for lazy people.
    It's very dangerous since not much good bikeroads in the world.
    Ain't nothing perfect. You've just got to make out what you can pack in your bag of guilt Some don't care and ride big pick ups with a chimney for exhaust.
    Some want to feel better and buy and electric vehicle. But then plug them into mains. When producing your own energy then it's a lot better.
    Energy is everywhere, but we just need to learn how to get it at the places where it's needed. Enough place in the sahara for solar plants, but no people there who ned it. A lot of energy in oceans. Again not where people live(yet).

    All the pieces ar available to make great improvements. But whose going to put them together? I don't think Elon Musk. He's just a salesman.

    For now I'll keep cycling. Next trip, NicoD's Leaving Europe. (UK)

    I've finished all of them. All 4k except the transport one. That would take too long since there are many light sources and bounces.(+10hours) And even then the quality would be less since I've got to lower some things.
    And the N2 isn't super stable either.
    They are all converted to jpg because the original png's are together 560MB.

    My favorite is the under construction one But you can't use that for supported

    I think I have found the issue !!!!!!!
     
    Its the PCIe Express NVMe Card.
     
    I remove it and the desktop seems not to hang .... I add it back in .... and the desktop hangs.
     
    I wonder if this has something to do with power spikes when there is graphics activity the errors in the dmesg indicate that
    vpcie1v8 = 5.1v rail   Shared with GPU
    vpcie0v9 = 3v Rail 
     
    Both of these rails hang off the same core buck converter SY8113B, the other SY8113B manages the USB peripherals seperatly.
     
    @AndrewDB    .... looks like you may be correct it was power all along  but it looks like its a kernel issue with the PCIe Power Management ?
