The Asus Tinkerboard S has a decent spec and supports 4K, but when I tried a test with the balena electron JS the performance of rendering a webpage with a slider is a bit choppy. Are there any config that need to be adjusted for a better performance?
Hello @pjs, I don’t have much experience with the Tinkerboard, but have you tried to increase the GPU memory on the balena dashboard?
Go to Fleet Configuration and change the values for
Try something like
396 and see if you get any improvement there.
Let me know how it goes,
Hi @dansku, I did change the values of the GPU on the dashboard, but there was no difference in performance.
not 100% sure if it would fit your requirements, but did you try running the balenaDash project?
Give it a go and see if you have the same quality issues.
Hi @pjs , I’m no expert on this stuff,but I think one of the main issues with electron GPU acceleration on most of the ARM SBCs is that they use a MALI gpu which doesn’t yet have great support in x11, I think there is some good support for them in wayland, but as of yet electron doesn’t support wayland. So we are still pretty far off good GPU accelerated electron on these boards. If you find a way to get this working, our team and community will be super super interested, we have been trying to solve it for a while (one of the reasons we ended up building Balena WPE, which balena-dash is based on.)
