So yesterday i was reading an old post on this forum from 2018 about the EDGE some one mentioned its form factor and why they chose the Khadas board.
One of the posters in the thread mentioned “it was either the Khadas or the Rock960”
So i go to Amazon and i search the Rock960 board and i kinda like how the chipset is under the board and the case is a HUGE heatsink.The board is very Khadas like
So next i go to their forum (Smartfly) and its a trip, the forum is identical to this one. I alway thought Khadas was kinda of unique in how it builds its boards and the other devices. The forum is also different then any other forum ive been on but when i went to the smartfly forum its idential to this one it was very strange.
Rock960 ? that’s a part of the 96boards form factor…
Yes, I’ve seen those boards, quite small and sleek
quite like the VIMs form factor, but with some differences…
If you want, take a look at this youtuber named Charbax, I’m his absolute fan of his tours, check him out if you want to get hooked up with cool SBC’s and Tech you can’t buy… (for now)
Yes going back over what i was surfing around yesterday it is 96Boards, but the forum was what shocked me. Ive never seen a forum like this before in my 20 some years of online surfing and to run into another forum like it with an SBC that is almost a clone of the EDGE or Khadas boards just seems kinda weird for some reason.
Ide like to get one if it wasnt for the RK3399, for some reason im not liking that chip, i mean its a fast chip but for how old it is they just dont seem very stable and never have
Discourse is just a open forum service provider,
and it offers many different “skins” of which the khadas forum skin, is a bit “rare” to come by, as it requires a lot of coding the UI, that’s why not many forum look as cool as this one or the coreelec one…
Any website starting with the “Https://Forum.” is a part of the Discourse subdomain…
I went to watch a youtube video about the board and the only one i really find is from 2017 when the board was about to launch. Its a great LOOKING board but they must of missed the mark because i dont see much support for it.
I think Khadas did it right by releasing a case and stuff to go with their boards rather then leaving the community up to doing what they want with it. I mean its designed to do more but having a starting point is the key a board and case then go from there with it.
A good looking case im sure helped, i know it helped me make my choice to get one
