rockPro64 vs Odroid-N2
#1
Rockpro64 board is broken I expect a new one with RMA. 
I've been using N2 for a month, a very very very bad board for Linux. N2 may be Android box but it cannot be an Rp64. 
I am looking forward to the arrival of the new RP64 board.

Could you go into some details about why? I'm on the fence about these two boards. On paper they look pretty comparable, so some anecdotes about Linux support would help.

hm... i would be interested in why your saying that as well.... As a developer i have been working on both of these boards since they came out using linux and some custom software i am working on as well as creating a bsd based os for both these boards and find both pretty much par when it comes to linux depending on what your expecting to do with them...

both boards are driven by totally different SoCs so there as some discrete differences which have lead to some areas in both boards being at different stages with whatever code your finding out in the public... but all things considered they are both the 2 best current boards currently available...

Then theres the vim3 but its badly designed with the M8 socket badly positioned leaving something like a ssd drive hanging way to far over the board making for trouble down the road with socket breaks and bad connections... Personally i believe they added the m8 to late into the design as they were looking for something to give them the edge over the N2 which currently dominates the Amlogic sbc board as the m8 socket is appealing to users... I buy and work on boards all the time as i have a full rework and repair shop and would never sell a bad design like that to anyone...

anyways... i would be curious as to why the "very,very,very bad board" is your impression...

RockPro64 was working fine. I turned it off one night and couldn't open it in the morning. Green led flicker. I sent it to Ameridroid, he returned it to me for doing too many RMAs. Now at home in his death sleep Smile I miss him so much.

I am a very novice linux user. I'm proceeding with trial and error, I also don't know English, these are great handicap Smile

Odroid-N2 is a nice board fast but Mate desktop is not good, No EGL / GPU Acceleration on X11 and will not support at all. I don't know if they'il find another cure for that, nobody knows!
I am using these SBCs like windows PC.
I have a very powerful HTPC, but I'm just turning it on for the game.

SBCs are quieter and save 30% -40% energy Smile
