The Banana Pi BPI-R2 Pro is a relatively large single-board computer (SBC) powered by the Rockchip RK3568. Announced in September, the SBC's pricing has now finally been confirmed, albeit not for its higher memory configuration.

BPI has begun offering the BPI-R2 Pro, a single-board computer (SBC) that it announced in September 2021. To recap, the BPI-R2 Pro relies on the Rockchip RK3568, an SoC that has four ARM Cortex-A55 CPU cores, an ARM Mali-G52 GPU and an NPU that offers up to 0.8 TOPS of performance.

Moreover, BPI includes five RJ45 Ethernet connections, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an HDMI out and a 40-pin GPIO, plus the obligatory microSD card reader. Also, the BPI-R2 Pro has a microSIM slot, an M.2 Key E, mini PCIe and a SATA connection for external drives. Elsewhere, the SBC has a 4-pin UART console, several MIPI connections and a speaker header, among other audio connections.

So far, BPI has confirmed that the 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of eMMC flash storage model would cost US$95. While CNX Software and Liliputing report that the SBC is orderable on the company's AliExpress store, it is listed as being out of stock. Unfortunately, it remains unclear how much the 4 GB of RAM configuration will cost, which BPI claimed it also hoped to release.
