(Update) Turing Pi reveals RK1 CM specifications

Jul 29, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 170 views

The Turing RK1 is a computer module powered by the Octa-core Rockchip RK3588 System-on-Chip. The RK1 will be available with up to 32GB RAM, 16GB eMMC storage and various other interfaces.

The Turing RK1 is compatible with the Turing Pi 2 mini-ITX cluster board released last year. 


  • RK3588S SoC — Quad-core Cortex-A76 (up to 2.4GHz), Quad-core Cortex-A55 (up to 1.8GHz); ARM Mali-G610 MP4 Quad-core GPU (up to 1GHz), 6-TOPS NPU; 8K@60fps H.265 and VP9 decoder; 8K@30fps H.264 and H.265 encoder

There will be three variants with 8GB/16GB/32GB RAM, 16GB eMMC and SD 3.0 support.  The RK1 is about the same size (69.6 × 45 x 1.3mm) as the CM4 and Jetson modules which are also pin compatible with the Turing Pi cluster board. For documentation about the Turing Pi V2 board refer to these pages.
