RK3399Pro is a one-stop embedded AI solution with superior performance and is the best choice for developing AI related products.
|Performance on several typical networks:
CNX-soft made a comparison of the NPU performance with popular embedded AI chips as below:
According the official performance from Rockchip, the RK3399Pro beats other high performance SoCs such as Apple A11, Huawei Kirin 970 and even NVIDIA TX2. If this is true, it would be very interesting and exciting since the chips avalability from Rockchips is far more easy that other highend chips.
And one more thing, RK3399Pro is pin-to-pin compatible with RK3399! So ROCK960 will be upgraded to ROCK960 Pro with RK3399Pro. Let’s wait!
