Firefly and LoveRPi are working together to bring you the Firefly-RK3399 Single Board Computer: the world’s first PC-class open-source hardware platform based on 64-bit ARMv8 Cortex-A72/Cortex-A53 core designs. Fitted with 6 cores, up to 4GB DDR3, and onboard eMMC with up to 128GB storage, the performance of this single board computer is in a league all its own. Powered by the ARM Mali T-864 GPU, the RK3399 can drive 4K Ultra-HD streams and games via USB Type C DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0. Onboard Gigabit Ethernet, Dual Band 802.11AC WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.1 makes connectivity effortless. It is engineered for Virtual Reality, 4K and Panoramic Photo and Video Capture, Computer Vision, 3D Rendering, Gaming, Low Power Server, and many more cutting-edge applications!

High Performance Hexa-Core 64-bit ARMv8 Dynamic Execution Processor

Powered by Rockchip’s RK3399 SoC with dual 2.0GHz CPU clusters, one cluster houses two Cortex-A72 high-performance cores and another cluster contains four Cortex-A53 cores.The new cores can deliver up to 100% performance improvement compared to previous Cortex-A15/A17/A57 core designs.

4K Capable Quad-Core ARM Mali GPU with OpenCL

ARM Mali-T864 GPU supports many of the latest API standards such as OpenGL ES 1.0/2.0/3.0/3.1, OpenVG 1.1, OpenCL 1.2, and DirectX 11 while performing 50% faster than the previous generation Mali-T628 GPU. This powerful GPU makes many applications practical such as computer vision, machine learning, and 4K 3D rendering. Integrated hardware decoding fully supports VP9, H.265 HEVC, and H.264 4K HDR encoded content.
