Hard Kernel brings Pi 3-competitor Odroid from C2




Hard Kernel presented the Raspberry Pi 3-competitor Odroid C2. The sign will cost slightly more than P 3, but has a faster processor, GPU support to output 4K images and a built-in Ethernet port.

The C2 has a AMLogic S905-soc on board, according to the product page . Which has four Cortex A53 cores at up to 2GHz. The BCM2837 Broadcom in the Pi 3 also A53 cores, but they go to 1.2GHz. The GPU of the Odroid is a Mali 450MP5 at 700MHz. Thus, the sign of Hard Kernel capable of outputting 4K video and h265 material at 60fps, two things that can not be the PI 3. The minicomputer has 2GB DDR3 memory onboard. Users need to add storage itself, and can do so via the micro SD slot or the EMMC port.

The Odroid C2 also has an Ethernet port, but onboard support for WiFi and Bluetooth are missing. Before that users will adapters in one of the four USB 2.0 ports, stabbing, suggests that the South Korean manufacturer. users can choose the operating system Ubuntu 16:04 or Android 5.1.

The C2 is the same size as its predecessor and as the Pi 2 and 3, namely 85x56mm. The small computer is available immediately for sale and cost 40 dollars, converted at present around 37 euros. It’s also slightly more expensive than P 3, which the Raspberry Pi Foundation asks 35 dollars.
