FriendlyARM NanoPi R4S

Hi to all! It’s Christmas time!

FriendlyARM has relesead a new board, please have a look at:
https://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=284
https://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_R4S

Features: Rockchip RK3399 + 1GB or 4 GB + dual Gbps Ethernet + 2x USB 3.0. The board size is 6.6 x 6.6 mm

In my opinion this board is better than Raspberry Pi 4b as home firewall, due to two real eth interfaces.

Happy New Years

Usually I wouldn’t agree because it’s used to lack of RAM, but this time this can be an option.

However I don’t think this hardware is supported.

It is theoretically supported, I will be receiving this board by the end of January 2021 as currently it is out of stock.

I will try to add its support to ipfire.

Yes it is very much powerful than rpi and it is perfect for home firewall with medium and high load.

Happy New Year to all.
