Want more out of Raspberry Pi? -try Banana Pi [News]
posted May 22 2014 7:57.50 by spic0m




Raspberry Pi became pretty standard Linux based development board/minicomputer. It's been quite a while since it's been here and we would like to see some improvements in performance and functionality for same price. Single core 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM sometimes is too slow especially when you are dealing with media or other heavy loads. Of course there are other alternatives to select from, but some of you probably would like to have same Raspberry Pi feel. And probably most of all same GPIO where you could attach your existing expansion boards.

It appears that such improvement exists. It's called Banana Pi. When comparing to Standard Raspberry Pi model B it has several significant improvements like dual core A20 CPU running at 1GHz, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, built in microphone, IR receiver, SATA socket, three buttons and other same connectivity Raspberry Pi have. Its price tag is pretty same as Raspberry Pi.
