It’s been a few years since Asus launched its first Raspberry Pi-like single-board computer aimed at makers, and the Asus Tinker Board platform hasn’t exactly exploded since then. But the company has made a few updates to the series over the years, with a Tinker Board S, Tinker Board R and Tinker Edge T, and now with the new Asus Tinker Board 2 series.

The latest model is an 85mm x 56mm (3.3″ x 2.2″) computer board powered by a Rockchip RK3399 processor featuring two ARM Cortex-A72 CPU cores, four Cortex-A53 cores, and Mali-T860 graphics.

Asus says the little computer will support Debian 9 Linux and Android 10 operating systems, with a build of the latter coming early next year.

The company hasn’t announced a price or release date yet.

  1. ASUS deviated away from the RPi compatible form factor, no longer worth it

  2. Youtube angers everyone, again. I don’t think that anyone is truly satisfied with how youtube has been conducting itself, except those who never knew any better. We’re all just becoming numb to the pain since we can’t do anything about it.
    I’d like to recommend using a peertube site, but honestly I haven’t used any peertube sites so I don’t know what they’re like.
    I can however recommend youtube-dl, which fortunately was popular enough for public opinion to convince microsoft to reconsider how dumb the RIAA’s request was (don’t expect the same treatment for other repos).

    1. I am personally not bothered by youtube ads. I have an adblocker on firefox in both my phone and computers. You can even use YouTube vanced which skips the ads and allows you to login to Google services to keep track of your consumption.

    1. Very underwhelming. Hey Asus, how about a Mediatek board that runs linux?
