From Hardkernel we receive news of its new ODROID-N1 board that includes as a novelty the Hexa Core RK3399 SoC a chip that we are seeing more in development boards than in TV-Boxes and in other types of devices. Naturally it is not a low-end PCB, it seems to will cost near $110 and includes a fairly interesting number of connectors between which undoubtedly highlight its two SATA ports. In terms of software this brand has announced support for Ubuntu 18.04, Debian with Kernel 4.4 LTS and Android 7.1
The ODROID-N1 Development Board includes the Rockchip RK3399 SoC as engine, a Hexa Core that integrates a cluster with two ARM Cortex-A72 processors capable of reaching 2.0Ghz and another cluster with four ARM Cortex-A53 processors, GPU level has a Mali-T860mp4 with support for codec decoding H.26 / H.264 and VP9 4K@60fps among others. We also have 4GB of RAM and storage memory eMMc 5.0 expandable via microSD card reader. At connectivity level we have 2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 2.0 output, 2 native SATA3 ports, Gigabit Ethernet port and 40-pin GPIO among others. This board can work perfectly with a passive heatsink of great size although if we are going to give it a continuous use better to use a fan.
- The ODROID-N1 motherboard will not reach stores until a few months and its price will be over $110 for the version with 4 GB of RAM and about $75 for the version with 2 GB of RAM that does not have SATA ports.
