    Phoronix: ODROID-XU4: Much Better Performance Than The Raspberry Pi Plus USB3 & Gigabit Ethernet @ $60

    Hardkernel recently sent over the ODROUD-XU4 for benchmarking. This ARM SBC that just measures in at about 82 x 58 x 22 mm offers much better performance than many of the sub-$100 ARM SBCs while also featuring dual USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, eMMC storage, and is software compatible with the older XU3 ARM SBCs. Here's a look at the performance of the ODROID-XU4 compared to a variety of other single board computers.

    No UEFI/ACPI = No purchase.

    I have a piles of powerful embedded boards rotting in my closets, I'm not buying a single one until they provide a real general computing platform. They just keep choosing not to do so, even after ARM commissioned a study saying it was of paramount importance, and they also have multiple boot specifications to choose from depending on the targeted market.

    I don't buy non standard boards any longer.

    I bought one of those and then left it on the shelf. It is very hard to figure out what Linux to run: one that isn't a pile of hacks with limited future.
    If I remember correctly, the s912 has no open drivers for the video and so these hacky Linux images use VNC in some fashion to do graphics.
    My hats off to those who were able to do the hacking but little PCs (eg. Zotac Zbox) Just Work.

    Game Benchmarks with Emulation Station or something similar would be fine!

    My clients places have unreliable internet and unreliable electricity. So, rtc is quite important.

    Unfortunately, most of them don't have RTC (cheaper models). Amlogic 912, 905 variant is user friendlier to flash linux on it; but these CPU usually come without RTC. Odroid C2 didn't have RTC too. U have to use RTC shield on the 40 GPIO pin.

    Still on linux 4.4 unfortunately. If you want mainline kernel (or close to mainline), hardkernel products (odroid) has a bigger chance for that.

    With very competitive prices if it complement your use cases, minus support (x86/x64 can use almost all linux distros)

    Yes, those boards may not represent full CPU potential. Should have used board names on those benchmarks. I still have to check it but it may be that on that board N3160 has a TDP scenario set that makes him clock much lower.
