Hello community,

 

I got some brand new Pine H64 Model B this week.

Anyone interested in a free test device?

Yes please.
I'm waiting for anything to change on their website.
I made a video about it on FOSDEM, but I wasn't able to stay to get their demo board. I wouldn't get back home then. I want it as quickly as possible cause I make youtube videos reviewing SBC's.
I always take 2 weeks to test everything, so I'm always the last to make my video.
I'm from Belgium, I hope you can ship here. I hoped TL would have send one.
Greetings, NicoD

In outline the

Pine H64 Model B

is the same as an

orange pi one plus?

Would bootlin be able to reverse engineer the vpu?

The gpu?

Free software is software you may use, share, modify and redistribute.

Does it support hardware accelerated encryption run on free software?

What devices on the computer require non free software?

AFAIK the same as Pine H6 just without PCI slot.

They developed support for processing certain video codecs. Not sure if H6 chip got to the list since they raised just 30K EUR. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bootlin/allwinner-vpu-support-in-the-official-linux-kernel so this part will probably covered by someone else. Hard to say.

If you are asking about 3D support that uses MALI engine? That is something completely different case, covered by other people. Some basic OS support exists for some Allwinner chips, but it is still long way to go.

That is again covered by someone else.

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 )
