This tiny computer is a precious tool for students, artists, and of course hobbyists and hackers.
With features for developing things in different areas, it is not a surprise to have hundreds of thousands if not millions of users. Raspberry Pi 3 uses a 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, the VideoCore IV 3D GPU and 1 GB of RAM. It is faster and more powerful than its predecessors. Specifically, it provides users with over ten times the performance of the Raspberry Pi 1.
Asus Tinker Board is computer similar to that of pi and offers some neat upgrades compared to Raspberry Pi 3.
The hardware’s are much better than that of Raspberry Pi 3 and offers much better perfomance.
Tinker Board uses a quad core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A17 CPU, 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, four USB 2.0 ports, support for gigabit LAN and Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD slot, Micro USB for power, swappable 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi antennas, and a HDMI 2.0 port with support for 4K video.
So Which One is Better?
From my experience, the answer for that question depends on what you intend to do with it. If you are playing with command line interface, simple algorithms and lower CPU utilization, go for raspberry pi. Because raspberry pi is cheaper and consumes very less power.
If you need better performance and 4K video support, you should definitely go for Tinker Board. Even though it consumes more power and costlier, it will give you satisfactory result.
