AllWinner H616 boards


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I bought a few months ago a H616 based TV Box, and made the same kind of mistakes this week. I bought an OrangePi Zero2, also sporting a H616.

I bought the TVBox because at that time: "wow, an undocumented AllWinnner SoC!", how stupid is that? :lol:

I bought the Zero2 because CNX software gave a few hints about the SoC features, like the fact the G31 GPU is a Bitfrost GPU, meaning it supports Vulkan, and down the line, it could potentially be supported by Panfrost open-source graphics driver.

I'm still dreaming of an Armbian based video encoding SBC, and this SoC (like so many others on the paper) looks promising:

  • Video
    • Decoding
      • 10-bit H265/HEVC up tp 4Kp60 or 6Kp30
      • VP9 up to 4Kp60
      • H264/AVC up to 4Kp30
      • AVS2 up to 4Kp60
    • Encoding
      • H.264 up to 4Kp25 or 1080p60
      • JPEG up to 1080p60

What do you folks think?

I think this could be an interesting soc, but in how many months (or years)?

This soc is not referenced in sunxi status matrix and nothing is planned in kernel 5.11, so I fear that support is not even started from their side. Maybe it's close enough to h6, but I didn't see any information about somebody able to start linux with it and it has a different gpu.

But a page for the H616 proccesor was created.
