ODROID N2+ is a new generation single board computer that is more powerful, more stable, and faster performing than N1. The main CPU of the N2+ is based on big.Little architecture which integrates a quad-core ARM Cortex-A73 2.4Ghz CPU cluster and a dual core Cortex-A53 2.0Ghz cluster with a new generation Mali-G52 GPU. Thanks to the modern 12nm silicon technology, the A73 cores runs at 2.4Ghz without thermal throttling using the stock metal-housing heatsink allowing a robust and quiet computer.
The CPU multi-core performance is around 20% faster and the GPU is 10% faster than the N1. The N2+’s DDR4 RAM is running at 1320Mhz with 1.2volt low power consumption.
The large metal housing heatsink is designed to optimize the CPU and RAM heat dissipation and minimize throttling. The CPU is placed on the bottom side of the PCB to establish great thermal characteristics.
Heatsink size comparison : The system height decreased from 34mm to 29mm approximately thanks to the slimmer heatsink on the N2+.
