Odroid N2+ vs. Raspberry Pi?

(1/3) > >>

kalabaster:
Has anyone considered looking for and acquiring an Odroid N2+ replete with 6 processor cores and the paltry 4 Gb RAM. As Jason indicates the 4 Gb may be suitable for most uses and the dual processors will facilitate power conservation. In it's most basic form it is about the same price Cdn as the rPi4 4Gb from Hardkernal ! Just sayin'. I don't know, if you give me 6 cores instead of 4, I would think I would want the extra HP and flow thru perf.   Whad up Dawg ?

I don't have a good sense of what distros are available for an Odroid. One of the advantages of buying an rPi is that a lot of distros run on it.

... and that a lot of add-on equipment is available for it.

From the Link in Kals post and the Wiki page found there, it appears the Odroid only runs a Ubuntu Distro and and Android OS, that are developed for the board. The Ubuntu Mate version needs 8 GB Ram and a Ubuntu Minimal needs 4 GB Ram. The Android OS needs 8 GB Ram.  I would guess the $83 price of the 4 GB board would be USD and then there would be shipping costs.
Apparently shipping is via FedEX or DHL from Korea. Shipping is $54, so total cost is $137 USD for the 4GB board. You may have to pay taxes etc, when it gets to Customs?

As a coincidence, I was looking up the price/availability of a RPi4 just yesterday and it appears most of the various versions (bare board, kit, 4 or 8 GB) are not available from my usual online stores and would be back ordered. :-(

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I bought an rPi4 with 4 gb RAM about a year ago.
