Watch out Raspberry PI there is a new kid in town! Manufactured in China, Banana Pi is very similar apart from the fact that it is much more powerful. It uses Allwinner’s A20 chip with a 1GHz dual core ARM Cortex-A7, has 1Gbyte of DDR3 RAM, and an ARM Mali400MP2 graphics processor. Banana Pi can boot up with Debian Linux, Raspbien, Android, and Arch Linux.
Another Raspberry Pi competitor is HummingBoard, which is a single-board computer from Israel.
