I can assure you that the RPi3 is the better choice for Kodi.

Can you please provide some evidence to support your theory? The specifications suggest the ROCK64 is the superior device.

ROCK64 vs Raspberry PI3

H.264 or H.265/main/main10 (10bit) [email protected] vs H.264 [email protected]
USB3 vs USB2
1Gbps Ethernet vs 100Mbps

HDR10 vs ? (not currently supported in Kodi anyway)
upto 4GB RAM (1, 2 or 4) vs 1GB
eMMC & SD Card vs SD card only

quick edit: The ROCK64 uses [email protected] vs .RPi3 [email protected] RAM.

I keen to replace my Pi3 with 'something' that has H.265 support and the ROCK64 is ticking a lot of boxes.
