Firefly has launched a Rockchip RK3566-powered single-board computer. Appropriately called the ROC-RK3566-PC, the single-board computer (SBC) is the same size as many SBCs, including the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. Specifically, the ROC-RK3566-PC measures 90 mm x 60 mm, making it 5 mm wider than the Pi 4 and 4 mm longer.

Currently, the ROC-RK3566 starts at US$65 with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Firefly also sells a 4 GB/32 GB model for US$95. Please note that both of these are promotional prices that will eventually increase to US$89 and US$119, respectively. Firefly hopes to eventually sell a model with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, though.

The image below shows the ports and connectors that the ROC-RK3566-PC offers. However, highlights include an M.2 PCIe 2.0 header for connecting M.2 2242 SSDs and an HDMI 2.0 connection that supports up to 4K and 60 Hz. The SBC also has a USB Type-C for power.

Both ROC-RK3566-PC models are in stock and are shipping now. Firefly ships globally using DHL, and EMS for orders from Russia. The SBC runs Android 11, Ubuntu and Buildroot, but CNX Software notes that Station OS support should eventually arrive, too.
