Asus reveals 4K-capable Raspberry Pi competitor

Though it’s not yet announced for an Australian release, Asus’ latest product looks pretty fascinating. The Tinker Board is aimed squarely at the Raspberry Pi crowd – a little, single-board PC complete with quad-core ARM CPU, 2GB of RAM, Gigabit ethernet, and capable of outputting 4K video.

Here’s the full specs, via CPC and Kotaku:

  • Quad core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A17 CPU
  • 2GB Dual channel LPDDR3 memory
  • Gigabit LAN and Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR connectivity
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • 4x USB 2.0 ports
  • 40-pin Internal header with 28 GPIO pins
  • Contact points for PWM and S/PDIF signals
  • 1x 3.5mm Audio jack connection
  • CSI port for camera connection
  • DSI port supporting HD resolution
  • 1x HDMI 2.0 port to support 4K resolution
  • Micro SD port supports UHS-I
  • Supports Debian OS with KODI
  • Power supply: 5V/ 2A Micro USB (not included)

Not bad for less than $100 locally, though it may be hard to get until (and if we even got) a local release.
