Theobroma Announces Rockchip RK3368 and RK3399 Qseven System-on-Modules

Orange Pi Development Boards

Theobroma Systems, an embedded system company based in Austria, has designed several Allwinner systems-on-module compliant with μQseven & Qseven standards in the past. The company has now started to work with Rockchip and reached “an advanced design stage” for the development of μQseven and QSeven systems-on-module powered by RK3368 and RK3399 processors.

Slight typo that i have sadly seen at other sites aswell:

PowerVR SGX6110 GPU

Its not an SGX part, but a Rogue part. Its correct name is PowerVR G6110. Source: https://imgtec.com/blog/powervr-series6xe-gpus-bring-opengl-es-3-0-graphics-everyone/

Interesting to know what the idle & typical power consumption of the RK3399 version actually measures.

15Watts seems rather excessive for a 7x7cm board, and I imagine would require a noisy fan ?
