Welcome to the first look video for the Libre Computer Board ALL-H3-CC. In this video we will be going over the hardware features of the board and comparing them to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. We will have a full review going over the software features of the board once the software bits are released. This board is designed to be form factor compatible with cases built for the Raspberry Pi 3. It features the same external connectors, placement, and board thickness for nearly complete compatibility.It offers the same external connectors like 4 USB ports, RJ45 ethernet, CVBS AV...

Welcome to the first look video for the Libre Computer Board AML-S905X-CC. In this video we will be going over the hardware features and comparing them to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. We will have a full review going over the software features of the board at a later point. This new single board computer is the first 64-bit 4K board at Raspberry Pi 3's $35 price point. We need to stress that this is not a Raspberry Pi board and will not be compatible with Raspberry Pi software without modification. This board is designed to be form factor...

We previously provided a hardware review of the boards we currently carry and now the numbers are in. Using standard images from our download section, we put all of the boards in a head to head test. Special thanks to Phoronix and Armbian for creating the tools and images that makes this possible. We will have software reviews in the next two weeks and some accessories and how to get up and running.   This is the only benchmark where the ODROID-XU4 does not win with its hefty Out-of-Order A15 cores. The Banana Pi M3 stays relatively close to the...
