Rock64 vs pine64
#1
Hi community
What will be changes in OS functionalities and overall ( hardware+ OS) performance in Rock64 compared to pine64.
Will there be changes in android animation, browser and youtube video performance.
Asking this because I want to use it as a PC replacement.

Guess, it is like a mid class tablet. What you have mentioned should work.

While running Android, you're probably not going to notice much of a difference. Everything is going to work basically the same, maybe just a bit smoother. The biggest difference you may notice is that it is more capable of playing 4K video than the Pine64.

1. Use Pine64  Running Debian Web Server ( LAMP )   , installed OwnCloud 
2. Use Pine64 Running Android 6  for  Media player

It doesn't really support any more video types (though there is one), but it has better resolution options.

The differences are:

H.264 at [email protected] (A64 is limited to [email protected])
H.265 at [email protected] (A64: [email protected])
VP9 at [email protected] (A64 does not support VP9 at all)
VC-1 at [email protected] (A64: [email protected])

So what I meant is that while the A64 technically can play 4k video, it has to be H.265 format, which severely limits the content you can play. The Rock64 does not have this limitation.

They would have to redesign the card, ofc.  The Rock64 is not a notebook solution; has no LCD nor battery support. I think Pine should consider making a Rockbook ( redesigned card using the RockChip rather than Allwinner ).

Are you the entrepreneur I met on  irc  from India who wants to build a $108 dollar notebook?

...  I think we've already talked about this...  if not forgive me.  You need to pay an engineering firm some R&D bucks to sort out what is required for your notebook;  the discussion is way beyond the scope of this forum (or its purpose) or the  irc  chat room.  But as I think I've told you previously, is a very costly and time consuming concept indeed.
