While the ODROID-C2 costs $5 more than a Raspberry Pi 3, it does have a faster processor, twice as much memory, Gigabit Ethernet, and a number of other features which could make it faster than the new Raspberry Pi.
On the other hand, it lacks three of the key features of the Raspberry Pi 3: built-in WiFi and Bluetooth and a huge community of people already developing software and accessories for the platform.
If those things don’t matter, here’s what you do get with the ODROID-C2:
- 2 GHz Amlogic S905 ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core processor with Mali-450 graphics
- 2GB RAM
- Gigabit Ethernet
- HDMI 2.0 with 4K/60 Hz and H.265/H.264 support
- 40 pin GPIO and 7 pin I2S
- 4 USB 2.0 ports
- IR receiver
The Hardkernel ODROID-C2 can support eMMC 5.0 and/or microSD card storage. If you want an eMMC module, you’ll need to pay $18 to $59 extra to get a model configured with 8GB to 64GB of storage.
