ASUS Tinker Board 2 Unveiled: 6-core CPU and Mali T860 GPU


ASUS Tinker Board 2

 
ASUS has unveiled few days ago the new version of the Tinker Board, its Raspberry Pi competitor.

The new Tinker Board 2 comes with the Rockchip RK3399 processor (or SoC), that integrates two coprocessors: an dual-core Cortex A72 and quad-core Cortex A53.

The graphics hardware is powered by a Mali T860, a GPU that supports both OpenGL and Vulkan graphics APIs:

According to ASUS, the new CPU is faster by up to 96% in single core or up to 64% in multi-core test and the new GPU improves performance by up to 28%:

I can’t wait to test this new computer with GeeXLab that supports the Tinker Board. Ok I must confess, I didn’t update the Tinker Board version of GeeXLab for a while, but this new board will be a nice opportunity. I’d like to see the performance of the Tinker Board 2 in this OpenGL ES 3.1 demo:
