Hello. I wish to join [email protected] . I have close people
 with those disease. I see that android 4+ and arm is ok for this project. I thinking about buying 3-6 boards for this. Witch Pine or Rock computer do more job/more task at same time/ efficiency for this ? Is better  buy 2 SBC ~30$ or 1 SBD for~60$?  Sorry for my English
In terms of total front-end cost, you're much better off buying a single board since each needs its own microSD card and power supply; plus monitor, keyboard, mouse if not running "headless." As cheap as they are, these little things can get expensive fast if you let them.

Also, more long-term, 2 cards use more electricity than 1. This is a very real cost, though you probably won't notice it in your electric bill for such small devices...

If you can squeeze a little more into your budget, BOINC should be able to leverage the Mali GPU on the RockPro64, providing even more computational power than the (more powerful) CPU alone.

For your indicate budget, explore ROCK64 and ROCKPro64.

ROCK64 2GB ~x2 cheaper  that ROCKPro64 2GB. I will use PSU and SSH. So i don't need power adapters and monitors. Only SD  multiply by SBC. Any of you have benchmark for Boinc, or Rosseta, or other perspective medicine project ?
Can some run boinc and then boinccmd --run_benchmarks. Then post pine or rock type , scoren and os?
