We put all of the Raspberry Pi boards and Orange Pi boards through their paces to give you an idea of how these single board computers perform. We did not include the Raspberry Pi Zero because it does not belong in this league. Raspberry Pi 3 > Orange Pi PC > Orange Pi Plus > Orange Pi One > Raspberry Pi 2 Please note: Orange Pi is not as user friendly as Raspberry Pi. Do not simply consider performance along when choosing your single board computer. You must also consider your use case, software compatibility, compatible accessories, learning curve, and...

  Not sure of which SBC to buy? We created a comparison chart of many SBC boards on the market. This is a best effort comparison and should not be used as a review. Some specs may not be accurate and does not reflect software support. If you notice a mistake, please let us know and we will correct it. We will have a software, OS, and performance review after we get back from ELC in San Diego.

heatsink, overheat, raspberry pi 3 -

While conducting our internal engineering load tests of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, it became evident that the Raspberry Pi 3 REQUIRES heatsinks. Without them, the board will overheat and experience thermal shutdown, corrupt HDMI signal, and video corruption. SoC diode temperatures are also incorrectly reported lower than actual temperatures. A test of 4 threaded sysbench resulted in the imagery below. We suggest active cooling for this board. At full load, it generates considerable heat and will become unstable. Once we get stock, our Raspberry Pi 3 boards will come with free heatsinks. Our kits for Raspberry Pi 3 will be actively cooled...

Fresh off 2016, we have two new 64 bit boards in the month of March. We will have them for sale in two weeks time. The Raspberry Pi 3's biggest feature is the WiFi and A53 cores. The ODROID C2 is the more interesting board with it's 2GHz Amlogic S905, 2GB DDR3, Gigabit Ethernet, 4K HDMI 2.0, and H265 4K60 HW Decoders.
