Many competitors to the Raspberry Pi family of single-board PCs have come and gone with varying levels of success. Pine64’s latest entry in this arena is now available for sale, and it’s called the Quartz64. The Quartz64 uses a Rockchip RK3566 SoC, a quad-core design that pairs an Arm Cortex-A55 CPU with a Mali-G52 2EE GPU. While this low-power SoC won’t win any performance battles against modern Arm chips found in smartphones and tablets, it’s plenty enough for the intended audience, capable of 4K video at 60 fps. When Pine64 first announced the Quartz64 back in February, it said that 2GB of RAM would come standard, with the option for 8GB. However, the Quartz64 is instead... Read more...
The fine folks over at Pine64 this week posted their February Update to give us a heads up on where it stands with current and future products. There was a lot to unpack with this latest update, but one product that really caught our attention is the Quartz64 single board computer (SBC).  Although it's currently only being shown in prototype form, it's expected that production version of the Quartz64 won't look too different from what you see above. Pine64 is quick to point out that there are a lot of similarities between the new Quartz64 -- which is the first member in the company's new Quartz family -- and the existing ROCKPro64. That means that you'll find... Read more...
Pine64 has made a name for itself by producing single-board PCs that are competitive with the incredibly Raspberry Pi family. Single-board PCs are well-known not only for their relatively affordable prices, but also their versatility when it comes to empowering new form-factors. Pine64's latest venture is with what it is calling the Pinebook Pro, which is a Linux-based laptop. The Pinebook Pro is said to offer performance comparable to that of the newly released Raspberry Pi 4, and features a hexa-core Rockchip RX3399 ARM64 SoC, 4GB of RAM and a total of 64GB eMMC storage. Given that this is a laptop, we should point out that it has a 14.1-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080.... Read more...
