Asus Tinkerboard 2 and 2S features
The new models are about 1.5 times faster than the first Tinkerboard series, the press release said. Rockchip RK3399 processor and ARM Mali-T860 MP4 graphics interface with the Tinkerboard 2 and 2s models, instead of USB 12-19v DC power input stands out.
With 2 2 GHz ARM Cortex-A72 and 4 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores, the models have 40 GPO pins. In addition, both models will be released with 2 different RAM options, 2GB and 4GB. Unlike the base model, the Tinkerboard 2S features 16 GB of eMMC storage. Both models have 3 USB 3.2 Type-A and 1 USB 3.2 Type-C outputs.
Devices with 1 HDMI 2.0, 1 Type-C and 1 22 pin MIPI DSI image transfer port can provide 4K / 60Hz image transfer. Except for Debian 9-based TinkerOS as an operating system, systems such as Kodi can also be installed.
