The Firefly Station P1 Pro is a little computer powered by a Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core processor with support for Android and Linux-based operating systems. Firefly positions the system as a device that can be used as a media center, personal computer, retro game system, or router, among other things.

Under the hood, the Station P1 Pro is very similar to the Station P1 that went on sale two years ago. But the newer model earns the Pro in its name in a few key ways.

For example, the P1 Pro has an M.2 2242 slot with support for a PCIe 2.0 NVMe SSD, while the original P1 does not. The Pro model supports WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0, while the original topped out at WiFi 4 and Bluetooth 4.2.

One other thing the P1 Pro has that its predecessor did not? A power button. Go figure.

Anyway, not everything is an upgrade. While the original P1 sold for $129 for a model with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage, the P1 Pro starts at $179 for a 2GB/32GB version. If you want 4GB of memory you’ll have to shell $199.

The little computer measures 124.4 x 79 x 31.6mm (4.9″ x 3.1″ x 1.2″) and features a selection of ports that includes:

  • 1 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C (with DisplayPort 1.2 functionality)
  • 1 x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 1 x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x microSD card reader
  • 1 x DC-12V power input
  • 1 x IR receiver for a remote control

Firefly also introduced a follow-up called the Station P2 last year. With an RK3568 quad-core processor, it’s actually a bit less powerful than the Station P1, but with support for up to 8GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage, and a 1TB SSD, it’s also more versatile.

  1. So are people ekeing out a living in industrial controls cabinets buying these for their battlestations, or what? Someone’s running Genshin Impact on Faraday on such a console and generating saleable game artifacts a hard way?

  2. That price is criminal for an RK3399 in 2022. What a ripoff. At least put a more recent chip in there…
