Orange Pi 2, a new rival for your Raspberry Pi

Orange Pi PC

Many are the evolutions and projects based on the Raspberry Pi that have seen the light since this famous board hit the market for the first time in 2012. Thanks precisely to the fame that the project has enjoyed from its first hour, it is not surprising that little by little a new generation of rivals have arrived who are up to the task in terms of data processing and are even capable of surpassing it. In the case of Orange Pi PC we find a card similar to the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B being marketed to half price.

Regarding technical characteristics, we find a compact size plate, 85 x 55 mm, and a weight of 38 grams, enough to incorporate premium quality elements such as a 3 GHz Cortex A7 Quad-core Allwinner H1.6 processor, Mali 400 GPU with Open GL 2.0 support, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM memory expandable up to 64 GB through the microSD card reader that incorporates, HDMI and AV ports, infrared receiver, WiFi, Ethernet RJ45 10/100/1000, four USB 2.0 ports, a microUSB OTG, microphone, interface CSI for camera and a 40-pin header compatible with Raspberry Pi.

Orange Pi PC hardware

As you can see, the Orange Pi PC developers and designers have taken it very seriously to offer a quality product compatible with any Raspberry Pi although, to put it some way «magpie«, To mention that it is true that one of the best processors on the market has not been chosen, even so it should be enough to move even 4K content and more than interesting for all those who are starting in this field thanks to the fact that it is for sale at a price of about U.S. dollar 15.
