Computationally, it is far more powerful as it is built around Allwinner’s A20 chip with a 1GHz dual core ARM Cortex-A7

and it has 1Gbyte of DDR3 RAM. Also on the main die is an ARM Mali400MP2 graphics processor.

“With removable SD card, Banana Pi can boot up with your favourite OS such as Debian Linux, Raspbien, Android, Arch Linux and so on,” said the firm.

The hardware is not directly software compatible with Raspberry Pi – for example the graphics processor is different, and it has an ARM v7 architecture core while the original has a v6 core.
