The rewards of Firefly-RK3399, you can choose the reward which you want.



Now, let's watch the video to know more about Firefly-RK3399



As a new generation of the best open source platform for Firefly, Firefly-RK3399 is equipped with a six-core 64-bit "server class" processor Rockchip RK3399, and with 2GB/4GB DDR3 and 16G/32GB eMMC, as well as increases PCIe 2.1 M.2, DP 1.2, Type-C, USB3.0 and other high-performance data transmission and display interface. The powerful performance of Firefly-RK3399 will bring a milestone change to VR, panorama shooting, visual recognition, server, 3D and other cutting-edge technology.



Firefly-RK3399 features

1、Six-core 64-bit”server class”Cortex-A72 processor

Using the nuclear architecture of dual “server class” core Cortex-A72 and quad-core Cortex-A53 , the frequency up to 2.0GHz, and the Cortex-A72 delivers up to 50% more performance at the same frequency as Cortex-A57, while reducing power by more than 15% .


2、Mali-T860 MP4 quad-core graphics processor

Supports OpenGL ES1.1/2.0/3.0/3.1, OpenVG1.1, OpenCL, DX11, AFBC(Frame buffer compression),
and the Mali-T860 delivers up to 45% more performance as Mali-T628, energy consumption ratio has been improved greatly.


3、Support dual cameras

With dual MIPI-CSI interfaces and dual ISP (Image Signal Processor, pixel processing capacity up to 800 Mpix/s), it can achieve two-way camera data input at the same time, supports for panorama shooting, gesture detection, depth detection, 3D and other high-end processing.


4、Dual PCIe combination of PCIe1.2 M.2 and Mini PCIe

PCIe 2.1 uses the M.2 Bkey interface for high-speed Wi-Fi and SSD storage expansion and supports up to nine types of expansion interfaces (PCIe x2, SATA, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HSIC, SSIC, Audio, UIM, I2C ), it with a strong expansion; and  Mini-PCIe for the LTE module specific interface, with the onboard SIM card port, easy to achieve IOT networking applications.


5、Dual USB3.0 high-speed interface of Type-C and USB3.0 Type-A

With two USB3.0 interfaces (Type-C + USB3.0 Type-A), transmission bandwidth up to 5.0Gbps, it’s 10 times than USB2.0.


6、Powerful display interface performance

Firefly-RK3399 with four high-performance display interfaces (HDMI2.0, DP1.2 (DisplayPort), MIPI-DSI, eDP), in addition to a strong display performance, but also to achieve dual display, it has a very obvious advantage for VR class intelligent devices and other high-end applications.


7、Powerful network

Supports 2.4GHz / 5GHz dual-band AC WiFi, Bluetooth4.1 and Gigabit Ethernet, the reserved Mini-PCIe can also be extended LTE module to achieve 4G communication.


8、Support Android 6.0.1 & Ubuntu 16.04 dual system

Supports Android 6.0.1&Ubuntu 16.04 dual system, it can be used for office study, games entertainment, server architecture and software development, intelligent embedded and so on.



9、Rich external interfaces

In addition to HDMI2.0, MIPI-CSI, MIPI-DSI, PCIe, DP 1.2, eDP, USB3.0 interface, but also reserved 42Pin row of needles: 8-channel I2S, ADC, I2C, SPI/UART, GPIO, LINEOUT , SPEAKER.


10、Application

The Firefly-RK3399 with exquisitely integrated design, so that it can be applied to many innovative products, while its the best performance and rich expansion interfaces are a powerful booster for cutting-edge technology.




The pledged time: From December 5, 2016, to January 10, 2017

Hi Firefly.

with new Mali- T860 Ubuntu can run:

Ubuntu or any other version 2D accelerated ?? (or wayland support with gnome3)
3D acceleration (kodi, Games, etc) ?
Accelerated video playback with Chrome plugin?

hey, guys. Please tell us, what hardware is being supported in Linux and what are our chances to build own fully-working Linux for this device? for example Gentoo based one

also it would be nice if you would add MicroPython support. Then your board would be very interesting even without GPU support

Hi guys
    the board of firefly-rk3288 has supported opengles (mali gpu ) and VAAPI (hardware decoder & encoder).
   And ,We will add these  to firefly-rk3399 soon.

But in rk3288  we just have one Debian that do 2D accelerate and have lag playing web vídeos more than 480p.
We don't have any usable linux disto OS,  you think that will have fully ubuntu working including 2D graphics? or firefly rk3399 will have all the same problems of rk3288 and will never run linux with accelerate interface and Web browser and video dedoder in browser?

Cheers

also please make firmware flashing method more user-friendly. I hate this windows utility you provide. Take for example dfu-util that is being user for PyBoard.

Totally agree that FireFly has no complete Linux support so far. So why should it get now? Don't believe

hi psycmos
yes, we have supported 3D ,and video accelerate(only h264). But we know it not support good enough,
the chromium browser can support 3D  (with opengles),but no video accelerate,we will find a way to fix it.
But for now ,it can't .  As you know ,we have many product to support: firely-3399,firefly-3288,fireprime,fireduino,fireBLE. We are really lack of hands . and the are some kindly people  like  mara ,mac-l1.. . they help us to make our board supported more functions.we are really appreciate .
Yes, as some people said ,firefly  support linux not well,But we are keep work on it, It may take some time,But we will never give up.
