We are glad to announce that we have now added ODROID-C2 to our list of supported platforms. The ODROID-C2 is a solid alternative to the Raspberry Pi model 3 B, and is anywhere from 2 to 10x faster than the Pi 3, depending on the operation, and offers a few great features:
- 2GHz quad-core Cortex A53 processor (Pi 3 is clocked at 1.2 GHz)
- Mali-450 GPU (Pi 3 has a VideoCore IV 3D GPU)
- 2 GB RAM (Pi 3 has 1 GB)
- Gigabit Ethernet (Pi 3 has 10/100)
- 4K video support (Pi 3 supports HD… drivers/support are usually better for Pi though)
- eMMC slot (Pi 3 doesn’t offer this option)
- UHS-1 clocked microSD card slot (Pi 3 requires overclock to get this speed)
