Pinebook using the Rock64?
#1
What are the chances of a premium Pinebook using your Rock64 SBC design?

As I see it, there are several advantages to a Rock64-based design.

  1. Rocketchip has moved beyond binary blobs that Allwinner requires
  2. Larger RAM support (up to 4 GB)
  3. USB 3.0
  4. GPIO pins
  5. Uses the same pluggable eMMC storage modules as other Pine64 products
Another thought is that this could be a modular notebook which incorporates the actual Pine64 Rock64 with an adapter board for the display, keyboard, and the trackpad.

What do you think?

this is a non argument. this is zealotry for ones and the subject for stupid parroting for others. consumers give no sh!t about this.
but this is a lie too. Rockchip didn't even manage to supply full Manuals. Open the RK3328 manual and what you'll see? UART and GPIO. and that's all! this is a joke. Not even eMMC controller. Finally, since when Rockchip has opened its binary blobs with DRAM initiliazation? Did i miss something?

Any chance for a H6 based version ? It seems to have almost everything a laptop need. Only thing it does need is a pmic, that supports battery (Reference axp805 does not).
