  • Mecool VS-RK3399 Board Linux Benchmarks

    Linux on ARMI’ve just showed how to install Debian, and build a Linux image from source on VS-RD-RK3399 board (akak Mecool VS-RK3399) last week-end, but at the time I did not run any benchmarks on the board. We already have plenty of benchmarks for Rockchip RK3399 in Android, so instead I started by installing the latest Phoronix Test Suite in Debian:

  • ASUS Tinker Board Is An Interesting ARM SBC For About $60 USD
