which is the fastest ARM board ever today ?


Hello,

which is the fastest ARM board ever today :-) ?


Here some attempts of specs. Tinker is likely the one?

SoC Rockchip RK3399, pinebook pro - Dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 MPCore processor 2x2.3GHz and Quad-core
ARM Cortex-A53 MPCore processor 4x1.6GHz, performs at => 4 * 1.6 + 2 * 2.3 = 11 !!

Pi Family:
PI 3: Raspberry Pi 3 ... 4x1.2GHz
PI 4: Raspberry Pi 4 B 8GB 4x1.5GH
PI 5: Raspberry Pi 5 B 8GB 4x2.4GHz = 9.6 !!


Asus family:
Asus Tinker Board 2S 6x2GHz
Asus Tinker Board 2 2 GB 6x2GHz performs at => 6 * 2 = 12 !!

Which other ARM Board can be faster?

Regards

What do you want exactly? What's your budget? The Orange Pi and Rock PI are based on the RK3588 chip which offers 8 cores, at least 4 of which are A-72. Solid Run do a mini server based on a 16 core A-72 NXP chip which is Arm System ready. There's servers out there with the Thunder X2 chip which is impressive. I suppose king of the Pack still is Ampere computing's servers. They do an 80 core A-76 CPU, @3.3 GHz & I/O to match. They also do a twin CPU server = 160cores. Impressive things made with 7nm wafer fab The cpu is 3.0GHz or 3.3GHz turbo but their proprietary water cooler keeps it in turbo continually. But their top of the range job sets you back $20K last time I checked.

Not to be overlooked are the M1-M3 Macbooks which offer up to 14 cores including some really decent X1(?) cores and crazy turbo speeds. The M1 had a turbo speed of 4.5 GHz, I don't know about later models. Wafer fab is 5nm for the M1-M2, & 3nm for the M3. Of course, you'll have to buy the rest of the Macbook with it.

Well, unless software is written specifically to use all available cores of a multi core system, (which most isn't), & bearing in mind price, probably the Raspberry Pi5....

For around $200, you'll get the Orange Pi. The board is cheaper, but you need extras (as with them all). Look up the specs & options. They even have an M2 option, but only PCIE-2 speeds. For sure, slarm64 supports them with a disk image, making install easy-peasy. The guy uses them himself for compiling.

The https://pine64.org/documentation/QuartzPro64/ is the best likely today !!

A super machine. However, is there a plastic boxing ???

Code:
     Documentation / QuartzPro64 / Hardware

Hardware

The SoC and RAM packages
General

    RK3588 SoC (8 cores: 4x A76 at 2.4 GHz + 4x A55 at 1.8 GHz)

    Mali G610MC4 GPU (4x Valhalla cores)

    16 GB of LPDDR4X (SK hynix)

    64 GB eMMC (Foresee, soldered)

    1x USB-C (with video-alt mode)

    1x USB-C (FTDI debug UART, FT232RL)

    1x USB 3.0

    2x USB 2.0

    1x HDMI in

    2x HDMI out

    1x PCIe 3.0 slot (open-ended)

    1x SD / TF card slot

    2x SATA ports

    2x Gigabit Ethernet (1x from SoC, 1x on PCIe, RTL8211F, RTL8111HS)

    1x Wi-Fi & Bluetooth module (AMPAK Tech AP6275PR3)

    2x SMA Antenna

    2x MIPI DPHY

    1x MIPI D/C PHY

    1x MIPI CSI

    1x PWM Fan header (four pins)

    1x RTC battery socket (CR1220, 3 V, see QuartzPro64 board schematics PDF, page 21)

    1x MIC (soldered)

    1x audio output 3.5 mm jack

    DC 12 V power input

Cooler

The board comes with two cooler mounts, a 4-hole mount that appears to be spaced 55x55mm apart, and the ~60mm diagonal "northbridge heatsink" mount the ROCKPro64 and Quartz64 Model A uses.

RK3588 is slightly (<1mm?) taller than the DRAM chips, use a thick enough thermal pad instead of thermal compound.
