RISC OS 'Advent' Calendar 2023 - Norman Lawrence

Posted by Mark Stephens on 06:24, 18/12/2023 | ,
 

An international flavour from Norman Lawrence with his desktop for us....

"A sneak peek at the house next door. I can report SUVs delivering lots of parcels late at night and that Santa uses RISCOSM when making his deliveries. He also likes to listen to Neil Diamond music on the long journeys north and play SuperDoku by Sine Nomine. 

The computer is a RockPro64 (rk3399 chip) booting from a 128 GB eMMC module. The RISC OS 5 operating system was supplied by R-Comp."

RockPro64 .. I remember first time I showed it at London show
some years ago. I just made it to usb before the show, no video
only serial. Very happy how it turned out!

Great to know that you were in at the beginning of the project. The RockPro64 is a very nice, well specked board and it seems that the NVMe drive will become available for RISC OS users very soon.

Yes, a big thanks to Michael for all the great work he done.

With regards to RockPro64, how does it perform compared to a Pi4?
What are the benefits of it over the Pi4 is probably the question I'm really asking?!

The RK3399 SoC ARM core(s) are a bit faster than Pi4. But
CM4 is faster according to benchmarks.

RK3399 has 6 cores two on the big A72 and four on A53. RISC OS is running on the big cpu.
