Giveaway Week – Videostrong VS-RD-RK3399 Development Board

That’s the time of the year for another Giveway Week on CNX Software. They will be some development boards, add-on boards, and one gadget. You’ll have to keep reading this blog everyday to find out, but I’ll start with VideoStrong VS-RD-RK3399 development board and accessories.

Also know as Mecool VS-RK3399, it is one of the many Rockchip RK3399 development board on the market. The board I have comes with 4GB LPDDR3, and 32GB eMMC flash, as well as all accessories above, minus the USB type-C cable which I can’t find anymore… A 12V/2A will also be provided in the kit given away.

I reviewed the board with Debian, tested the SDK, and ran a few benchmarks in Linux about a year ago, and I found that while the board mostly worked as expected, software support and documentation needed some improvements. The SDK page is still there,but they have not really updated it since last year. The device was also sold as a “TV box” on GearBest, and supports Android (e.g. Freaktab version), and LibreELEC.

    1. Then lets try 🙂
      P.S. posting failed a couple of times, so if there are duplicates please delete.

  1. RK3399 board. if its free, why not. sign me up
    never tried it cause of the price
    For the selling price i dont think its worth it if i need to spend some moolah for it, especially if i can get a netbook for the about same price

  2. Ah, i’m just currently searching for aarch64 builders for the RPMFusion project.. of course i’d want to be selected in the giveaway!! 🙂 imo one of the best linux chips around here, this rk3399

  3. These are clearly the most popular posts here, but hey, let’s give a go, as this could be a nice toy to have.

  4. Just trying my luck on this, since RK3399 is a strong SBC but a pricey one!, hell yeah 🙂

  5. Cool! I wanted to get my hands on a RK3399 for a long time. Thank you for your blog this year!

  6. Count me too. Really would like to get rk3399 since I have rk3288 and its pretty fast.

  7. It’s impressive of the number of SBC with RK3399. Rockchip is the best contributor for Linux on ARM ?

  8. Could you do more benchmarks on Arm boards vs a common Intel chip as some kind of standard..

  9. I would love to give this a try.
    (I’m a regular follower of this blog but never registered. My anonymous comment isn’t showing up though, so registered and signed up now.)

  10. Can i have something this time..particularly looking for a good mini display (pi and other sbc) without any driver issue or anything really interesting & thanks nice giveaway as always.

  11. I wonder whether the RK3399 is good enough to be a daily driver. Maybe if it could have more RAM attached?

  12. I have many ideas for using an RK3399 board, and I would be very happy to be given one, so I could publish some projects about it.
