Today I’m going to talk about ODROID-C4 FROM HARDKERNEL a South Korea based manufacturer. They have some quite pretty SBC like ODROID-XU4 with Octa-core chips but also they are much expensive than the PI4.
But if you want an alternative of the PI4 you must check their new SBC which ODROID-C4 cost only $50 and much powerful than the Pi4. also, they are giving more discount you order this SBC on bulk, which you can see here.
|25 ~ 99||4%|
|100 ~ 299||5%|
|300 ~ 499||6%|
|500 ~ and more||7%|
So without wasting time, let’s see what else we get with the ODROID-C4.
The ODROID-C4 comes with a quad-core Cortex-A55 cluster and Mali-G31 GPU. Clocked at 2.0Ghz without thermal throttling using the stock heat sink allowing a robust and quiet computer.
The Quad-core CPU performance is around 40% faster on multitasking, and the system DRAM performance is 50% faster than the ODROID-C2.
The ODROID-C2 is too old now.
On the other hand, the GPU is also quite interesting. The Mali-G31 is Bifrost-based from Arm runs at 650MHz and is ~50% faster than Mali-450MP in ODROID-C2.
The ODROID-C4 also comes with faster DD0R4 RAM which runs on 1320Mhz and it is almost twice faster than the ODROID-C2.
Moreover, the other specification is on the board:-
The Odroid-C4 comes with four USB 3.0 ports, an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, one HDMI 2.0 display port up to 4K@60Hz, a Micro USB 2.0 port, and a power jack.
The Odroid-C4 support up to 64GB eMMC storage and there are green and amber LEDs for indicating data traffic.
There’s also a 40-pin expansion header and a seven-pin audio expansion.
