Pine 64 first boot up and performance check using Remix OS


I received my Pine64 today. Its a $15 64bit Quad Core SBC (actually mine is a $29 2GB model) based on an Allwinner A53 ARM Processor and RAM ranging from 512MB to 2GB depending on model you choose to buy.  I pledged for it on Kickstarter some 6 months ago through a friend who also happened to order couple of other boards.

So here it is, some pictures of unboxed Pine64 hooked up to a USB Mouse and TV through HDMI.

I am using a 5V 2A mobile phone charging adapter to power the Pine64.

I have also made a quick video of basic performance check of this SBC by running a 1080p (Full HD) video file through a 16Gb Pendrive. Take a look:
