Pine 64 is Raspberry Pi 3 that does 4K, but you’ll have to wait to get one | TechRadar

Forget fruit, wood is where it’s at when it comes to miniature computing – or at least that’s what the makers of the Pine 64 would have us believe, a rivalling board that undercuts the Raspberry Pi 3.

As far as connectivity goes, you get two USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, and HDMI – this little board is capable of piping out 4K video. There’s also a 3.5mm stereo output mini-jack and a microSD slot into the bargain.

Link: ODROID-C1 is a $35 quad-core, single-board Android/Linux PC

When the Raspberry Pi team launched a tiny, low power computer priced at just $35, it was pretty remarkable. But that was 2 years ago, and while the Raspberry Pi has seen a few updates in that time, it’s still powered by the same single-core 700 MHz Broadcomm BCM2835 ARM11 processor.

Over the past few years a number of other single-board computers with more powerful hardware have appeared, but they usually also have higher price tags.

Hardkernel’s ODROID-C1 doesn’t though… it’s a quad-core mini computer that sells for just $35.
