The Raspberry Pi has a new rival, the more powerful but slightly pricier Asus Tinker Board.

The Asus Tinker Board has a faster processor and more memory than the Raspberry Pi 3, but sells for £55 ($68), considerably more than the £33 or $35 Pi 3.

Top Tips:

  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

But that is £55!?! Hardly in Pi territory. I remember when I was working on something using Intel motherboards to run as a Linux SBC and we were paying something like £40..50 at the time. So £55 isn't going to exactly set the world on fire.
