ASUS’ Raspberry Pi rival can play 4K video

Homebrew-friendly boards such as Raspberry Pi are most appropriate PC’s for self-projects and have the ability to handle highly complex tasks.

This is the area where ASUS hopes to make more improvements, therefore, without any advertisement it quietly released its device named as Tinker Board.

Its size is same as the size of Pi, but it is featuring a quad-core Rockchip processor and gives it the ability to play 4k video and 24bit audio. If you are making a mini media center then this will be an appropriate hardware for you.

The board is also featuring a RAM of 2 GB, twice as used in PI, a gigabit Ethernet and the latest version of SDIO for add-on boards.

However, ASUS’ hardware is not surprisingly expense than its rival companies. The price is around about $68 but the important problem is software.

Previously, Raspberry Pi supports Debian Linux and the Tinker board also operates on a variant of Debian Linux and also supports Kodi for around-the-home media streaming.

According to liliputing notes, ASUS does not have the Pi’s year of developer support and fandom which could support for many years.
