Back in February I posted about the Tinkerboard, and the least I can say is that it wasn’t pretty. The board was struggling with 1080P when Asus was touting 4K capabilities.
Now, with the release of the official TinkerOS, people have been re-building solid reviews and giving the board a lot of praises. Novaspirit Tech (video below) can be seen playing 4k footage smoothly for instance. A lot of progress has been made!
Now, whether or not the board can dethrone the RaspberryPi in the heart of retrogamers remains to be seen, but this is fantastic update nontheless. If Asus keeps up the support, this would become the de-facto new standard for SBC. We’ll stay tuned!
