HiKey 960 with Navio 2 instead of RPi 3?!


I read about the HiKey 960 microcontroller recently,
and understand it can run Linux images.

It has four ARM Cortex®-A73 and four Cortex-A53 cores with 3GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM memory,
which is significantly faster than the Raspberry Pi3.

I wondered, can the Navio Images also run on / with this ?
It has a video engine, and I wondered if that is beneficial e.g. in image processing.

Just an Idea i am throwing out there, happy about your insight.


@romulus Hi! Navio image runs only on Raspberry Pi boards. Porting it to any other SBC is quite a big effort.
