ASUS Tinker a RPi clone SBC from ASUS

#ASUS #Tinker is almost a complete #RaspberryPi clone

ASUS launched Tinker Board (exact clone of the Raspberry Pi, I/O pin for I/O pin). The ASUS Tinker is a bit of a mixed bag compared to the current Raspberry Pi 3 Model B board. It has double the RAM at 2 GB but it is powered by a Rockchip RK3288, a 1.8 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 processor versus the RPi 3’s Cortex-A53 chip. For almost everything else, however, the types of ports and even their locations are a dead knocker for the RPi.

Accessories, shields, and GPIO peripherals that worked on the RPi would also work on the ASUS Tinker. The price of ASUS Tinker Board is selling for 55 GBP, roughly $68 and nearly twice that of the Raspberry Pi.
