The Raspberry Pi has spawned numerous competitors since its first release over seven years ago with manufacturers like Pine64 undercutting the popular single-board computer on price while offering more features. The company first announced the H64 Model B in January at FOSDEM 2019 and now it is available to order on Ameridroid.
The H64 Model B succeeds the Model A and is now based on the smaller Rock64. Pine64 has included onboard Bluetooth and 802.11 n Wi-Fi, while the Model B can be configured with up to 3 GB RAM. The single board computer is equipped with an Allwinner H6 SoC just like its predecessor along with two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, one USB 3.0 Type-A port and two 20-pin Pi2 GPIO headers. There is Gigabit Ethernet, 128 MB of SPI flash and an HDMI port too.
The Model B is not currently available to order on Pine64, but Ameridroid is currently selling the 2 GB RAM version for US$38.95 and the 3 GB RAM model for US$48.95. Pine64 promises to release a 1 GB variant too, which should retail for US$24.95, which would be around US$10 cheaper than the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. All three H64 Model B models are compatible with most single-board computer accessories too.
