What is faster/better: Tinker Board vs Banana Pi BPI-M64?
8gb onboard emmc on the banana, this is like putting an ssd drive into old crap computer.(improvement will be amazing)

The biggest problem with the raspberry and the tinker is that the sd cards are so slow that it can almost be compared with old floppy drives.

Please rethink:

BPI-M64 (check armbian forums) usually use EOL (super slow, super cheap, Class200) "KLM8G1WEPD-B031" chip with "upto" 100MB/s read and 6MB/s write (BPI-M64 has limit 50MHz/DDR/8bit eg. 100MB/s) (eMMC gen 5, theoretically 400MB/s (200MHz/DDR/8bit)) (check internet for speed tests and replace by faster).

On the other hand TB (rk3288) should support faster microsd card - SDIO-3/UHS-I - sdr12, sdr25, sdr50, sdr104 (TB has limit (<=150Mhz) 150MHz/SDR/4bit eg. 75MB/s) (some iozone test) eg. nearly equivalent to BPI-M64.



You should rethink other views - like community, documentation, chip vendor support/openness, board vendor support, linux upstream support, other os support (bsd, android, windows), embedded peripherals, data throughput, end of sale date, compatibility of replacement ... to match your specific requirements. Such "generic" question may lead only to FUD/flamewars.
