We recently saw a Banana Pi BMP-M2S single-board computer that was powered by the powerful Amlogic A311D processor. Prior to the release of Banana Pi BMP-M2S, the Geniatech DB10 AI development board came to light with the same AI processor onboard. The DB10 AI development board is huge hardware when compared to the Banana Pi BMP-M2S SBC. But of course, looking at the number of interfaces it is justifiable.
Regarding the onboard powerful AI processor featuring quad-core ARM Cortex-A73 and a dual-core Cortex-A53 core with L2 cache to improve system performance. The integrated ARM Mali-G52 MP4 (6EE) supports OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenCL 2.0. The hardcore NPU is capable of providing high performance for AI tasks with a speed of 5 TOPS and supports INT8 inference for all deep learning frameworks including TensorFlow and Caffe.
