Upcoming Orange Pi Pro to Feature K3588S Chipset with LPDDR5 RAM and PoE+ support


In a recent announcement, orange has recently announced some key details about their latest Orange Pi 5 Pro SBC. From that, we know this new board will be built around the RK3588S SoC and It will have a GbE port with PoE+ support, M.2 Key slot for expansion, and Wi-Fi5/BT5.0 connectivity 6 TOPS NPU 16GB of LPDDR5 eMMC 5V/5A DC

The RK3588S SoC features a quad-core Cortex-A76 CPU (up to 2.4GHz) and a quad-core Cortex-A55 CPU (up to 1.8GHz), alongside an ARM Mali-G610 quad-core GPU (up to 1GHz) and a 6-TOPS NPU for enhanced AI capabilities.

The RK3588S is the latest and greatest SoC that Radex has to offer, and this is not the first board to utilize this SoC. Previously, the ROCK 5C used this SoC to power their SBC, and the trend is likely to continue.

The SoC also features a Mali-G610 GPU, along with a 6 TOPS NPU. On top of that, It supports LPDDR5 RAM options (4GB, 8GB, or 16GB) and versatile storage including eMMC, MicroSD, and M.2 slots. Supporting HDMI 2.1 for 8K at 60Hz and HDMI 2.0 for 4K at 60Hz, it also features DP1.4 ALT. With MIPI 4-Lane for high-res video, ES8388 codec for audio, and a 40-pin GPIO header, it’s a flexible, multimedia-centric board.
