Re: More and better information about hardware revisions

Okay..

My Raspberry Pi 4B 4Gb is in version 1.1 for some reason. Anybody own a RPI version 1.0

Re: 64-bit weekly kernel autobuilds for RPi4 released (bcm2711_defconfig)

Just a notice.. Dont use more than 3Gb ( total_mem=3072 ) else the USB/Ethernet will start to behave erratic and malfunction Could you expand on this a little? Is it just for the 64 bit stuff or does it apply to the standard 32 bit stuff? Thanks Have you seen this fresh patch to enable 4 GB RAM? ht...

Re: 64-bit weekly kernel autobuilds for RPi4 released (bcm2711_defconfig)

Could there be any config/compile differences other than 32 bit vs 64 bit impacting the results? Config differences including but not limited to: * sakaki's image defaults to total_mem=1024 . Did you change that before running your test? Having less memory available probably can't speed things up, ...

Re: Why moving to 64bit?

So why not continue to run 32bit and make some kind of solution/simulator for those 64 bit browsers. Is that possible? I know that you can run 32 bit in 64 bit OS, at least in Windows but is that doable in a 32 bit OS to do the opposite?

It does work, and my experiments showed quite small performance decrease not being scheduled for the new CPU. It just seems incongruous to me!

Re: Why moving to 64bit?

The current bug that you need to restrict one megabyte of the four existing megabytes on the RPI 4B if you want to use 64 bit OS is concerning as well. Surly the RPI will run just as fine on 3Gb, but that’s not the point. Is this something that’s doable to fix without major overhauling of the Kernel...

Re: Why moving to 64bit?

It helps to have virtual memory bigger than actual memory. Useful for big databases etc A 64bit address is much bigger than 32bit. 32bits is not enough to have a unique ID for everyone on the planet.

Re: 4gb - 4B Demand must be high.

I think you are missing the point of the Pi. If you want enough memory to do this sort of thing, then the Pi is simply not the right device. You need a 64 core 1TB RAM machine!

For many of you, this thread will be completely worthless and unnecessary.

Right now, USB3 feels more of a problem than a blessing. Do you know why this phenomen accures, It seems ONLY (what i know of) to affect 64 bit systems?! It is a problem with the PCIe interface that the USB controller is attached to. Read https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/3093 for the tec...

Re: 64-bit weekly kernel autobuilds for RPi4 released (bcm2711_defconfig)

Having 3GiB (on a 4GiB Pi4) is a lot better than just 1GiB! Setting total_mem any higher (or omitting it from config.txt) prevents the USB ports working properly with the current state of the 64-bit kernel (see trejan's post above ; I have also confirmed this personally). hth, sakaki That sounds a ...
