Talking Video : Review of the Odroid N2+ in Linux

Hi all.
I've just finished my review video about the Odroid N2+. The most powerful ARM SBC.
It's a great beast, but has its issue's too. Here's my video.

Here all my gathered data.
Ubuntu 18.04
No autofill in terminal. sudo apt install bash-completion
Can't change keyboard layout to Belgian
5Ghz wifi adapters not working/No kernel headers to install
Good video playback with Firefox in 1440p res. up to 1440p video. But no VPU acceleration. Light screen tearing.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt install exfat-fuse exfat-utils #for Ubuntu 18.04
sudo apt install bash-completion zram-config geany

sudo geany /media/boot/config.ini
#set cpu frequency and display resolution

XFCE ArchLinux
Display resolution can't be set, not in OS or config.ini
No on-board sound. USB audio adapter works

Temperatures / Hottest day of the year
Idle OC 43C
Max OC 77C Heavy throttle at 75C after 10 minutes from idle
Idle default 40C
Max default 75C Light throttle after +15minutes

Power consumption

- IDLE : ≃ 1.9W (Performance governor)
- CPU Stress : ≃ 5.5W
- Power-off : ≃ 0.2W
- IDLE : ≃ 2.2W (Performance governor)
- CPU Stress : ≃ 5.9W (@2016/2208MHz), 6.2W (@2016/2400MHz)
- Power-off : ≃ 0.2W

SD card reader / sandisk extreme 128GB
77.8 MB/s read
28.3 MB/s write
0.51 msec access time

USB3 with NVMe to USB3
318.9 MB/s read
215.5 MB/s write

The same NVMe on the M4V2
389 MB/s read
392.7 MB/s write

eMMC 32GB read 166.1 MB/s

No on-board wifi.
Interference with USB3 and 2.4Ghz wifi dongles. Better to use the OTG port for these.
Can't change display resolution in OS
Throttling at OC clocks
Most powerful ARM CPU in -100$ SBC.
Very low consumption.

Greetings, NicoD
