Pine64 says Rock64 available LTS until 2022. So, the RockPro64 hasn’t replaced 
it, just supplemented it. Even
the A64+ that I bought is still available, although there is an upgraded A64+ 
LTS available for $3 more, so why would you buy it. I still like the feature 
set of the RockPro64, I am just not sure I can find a working preempt_rt kernel 
for it.
