The Banana Pi R64 is a router based development board, which can run on a variety of open source operating systems including OpenWrt,Linux.
It has 4 Gigabit LAN ports, 1 Gigabit WAN, and AC wifi AP function. use 64 bit chip design Note: this board doesn't have HDMI interface

MTK MT7622

Highly integrated 4x4 802.11n and Bluetooth 5.0 platform with dedicated Network Accelerator
MediaTek MT7622 is the world’s first with 4x4n 802.11n/Bluetooth 5.0 system-on-chip designed and built for premium networking devices across several applications including routers/repeaters, home automation gateways, wireless audio, and wireless storage.
The highly versatile chipset provides a single platform for popular 4X4 dual-band and tri-band routers/repeaters, providing maximum flexibility for manufacturers looking to build top-tier networking devices.
The platform pairs high performance and extensively integrated functionality with a cost-effective approach.
The MT7622 contains MediaTek’s Adaptive Network technology that allows for easy setup, network self-healing, roaming, band steering, Smart quality of service, advanced security and more.
For audio and voice control applications, essential audio interfaces such as I2S, TDM and S/PDIF are included. And for Home Automation Gateways there is a rich array of slow I/O in addition to the integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Zigbee co-existence.
Powered by a 64-bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.35GHz, the MT7622 provides a host of advanced connectivity options like SGMII/RGMII, PCIe, and USB, and 4X4 802.11n FEM integration.
Extending the platform with 802.11ac to meet additional markets is simply done via MT7615 SoC.

The MT7622 introduces several best-in-class features such as Bluetooth 5.0 and a dedicated Network Accelerator engine with the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator, storage accelerator (SATA 3.0/eSATA Gen2) and HNAT HQoS calculations are offloaded from the CPU, lowering overall power-use and freeing up resources to avoid any potential slow-downs.

The advantage of the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator is two-fold.
Firstly it connects the Gigabit+ class 802.11ac networking through to the Gigabit switch/WAN connection via multi-Gigabit internal pathways, ensuring no bottleneck.
Secondly, its specialized design not only offloads the CPU from many-user throughput and QoS calculations, it does so at lower power.
The result is the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator maintains a sustained high-performance when even supporting multiple, simultaneous heavy users.

Integrated Bluetooth allows for a direct, local wireless connection via App for easy configuration of the router/Wi-Fi settings.
The latest Bluetooth 5.0 quadruples range and doubles speed versus previous 4.x technologies, allowing new and innovative possibilities.
