Feature Comparison (Raspberry Pi 2 vs ODROID XU4 and more)

Hardkernel has a nice block diagram showing the features of the ODROID-XU4:

Here is my feature comparison table, comparing some of the popular single board computers I have reviewed:

As you can see, the ODROID-XU4 costs more, but it provides quite a bit more for the money as well – higher clock speed, 8 cores, 2GB and USB 3.0 are major gains in capability.
