RDP performance on RPi and other boards

Just a video comparison on various board running RPi-TC "distro". ODROID board is absolutely amazing, full screen 1080p video without problem without using RemoteFX.

UPDATE MK808B (RK3066 chipset):

RaspberryPi:

CubieBoard:

ODROID:


There are also other board i've already tested and lot of them can be used as pro ThinClient, better than commercial ThinClient i've see around...

If you are interested in some customization on RaspberryPi or other board contact me at gibbio @ gmail . com
tschüss!

  1. I've been working with your latest release for a few days now. Great work!

    I've been trying to get the DirectFB version of FreeRDP working (with some success, actually), but I'm not sure if it's worth the effort. I thought it might have better performance than the X version.

    Did you do any other configuration from your stock release to do this demo? I am on a RasPi board - I'd like to replicate your test.

    What version Windows are you connecting to? Any RDP-specific settings inside Windows that you had to change?

    Can you comment on USB Redirection? Have you tried it yet?

    Also I'm trying to get a multitouch monitor working...

    1. Ive tried dfreerdp with raspberry board but i think performance is worse than x11 version. I've also try on another board (with framebuffer driver) but the feeling was the same.

      I didn't use any special configuration, just enable RDP on my Windows 8 Pro 64bit :)

      Yep, working on USB redirection atm ;)

  2. Hey thanks for the videos, it's interesting how well the ODroid performs even without RemoteFX.

    Did you manage to get any similar results with the BeagleboneBlack?

    1. BBB have almost the same performance as CubieBoard

    2. Thanks, I'll have to try it. Does the BBB work with the RPi-TC distro as with the other boards?

    3. Every board need a personal customization based on hardware/driver, so at least kernel, modules and board specific modifications must be done

  3. hi,

    Is there an opportunity for using the graphical acceleration is eventually get the same performance with raspberry as odroid?

    great work, thanks.

    ps : sorry for my english

    1. no, odroid have 4core cpu/gpu, raspberry just one. Yes, there is still more performance gain gap in RaspberryPi, but it will not be good as an odroid

  4. Hi Gibbio, you didn't have to adapt RPI-TC for each board ? You just used them with the official RPI-TC image ?

    1. rpi-tc distro can be used on very board but a customization on kernel/module/confs must be done or board just didn't startup

  5. Hi Gibbio, did you flash your distro into NAND Flash of the Cubie? how can i do that?

    1. yes i've just dd it on nand (dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/nand bs=1M count=2000), it's fast to bootup, nothing else :)

  7. Hi Gibbio, I would like to flash my MK808B with the RPI-TC image. Do you have instructions on how to do that?

  8. Is it possible to run the latest build on the ODroid U2 with litte modification? Are you Form Germany (tschüss)?

    1. yes, you have to adapt it to the SoC (kernel/modules rebuild)
      not yet :)

  9. Are you going to have different downloads for builds on different boards?

  10. Just ordered a RPi and mk808b. The pi seems a simple install. Does the install differ for the mk808b? I see it has a rom and memory slot. Any advice is welcome and very nice build and look forward to your next!

  11. Hello,

    What board do you suggest to use below $60? Although my R-Pi is good enough, it seems that there are so many better board out there.

    O-DROID is quite expensive ($89) and doesn't support VGA (I don't think HDMI-VGA adapter will work on that board).

    MK808B doesn't have LAN, and only have one USB port. Connecting through Wi-Fi should have better bandwidth than 100Mbps LAN port, but the latency is not as good as cable.

    Cubieboard is quite interesting, mainly because it support VGA by adding header that cost $20. The board itself cost $50 w/o shipping. But from the video it seems the performance is on par with Raspberry Pi.

    Have you tried Cubieboard 2 that have A20 processor?

    Thank You

  12. Are these boards held back by a lack of accelerated X11 drivers?

    Is there a board out there which has these available?

  13. WOW, amazing how the odroid is performing!!!
    Which solution did you use?
    I can't get the performance that you got, it would be kind from you to tell me how did you do it.
    Thanks in advance!!

    1. I would apreciate if you could tell me how you did compile freerdp 1.1.0 for armhf if its posible. I own an odroid U2 and the performance with Remmina and freerdp 1.0 is awful. Thanks for your precious time.
