Will the Rock64 work as a mobile data storage device?
#1
As it looks like that the Sata and USB3 combi on these boards is not going to be available soon, I was wondering what the performance is going to be if I would copy an CF or SD memory card (>= 32GB) over a USB3 Hub to an SSD HDD using the Rock64.

As a photographer I have a need to backup my memory cards on location.  There are commercial solutions, but the DIY in me wants to build it myself.

So I was thinking of a Rock64, USB3 hub (with or without external power?!), card reader and 256GB SSD. With the wish of placing an HDMI, or GPIO Display on top for menu and viewing images. Power supply over 18650 Powerbank (3A).

If this proves a working concept, a lot of photographers would be very happy.

So does anyone have experience in the performance copying USB3->USB3 of large files (25MB average) ?
