Re: Which 3 things do you want to see in the Raspberry Pi 4?

I've been asked why I haven't designed and manufactured a better SBC for $35. I've been told there are other SBC's which fit my requirement. I've been told I think the Raspberry Pi Foundation is run by a bunch of numpties who don't know what's needed. Yet, nobody (except for me) has access to my bra...

Re: Which 3 things do you want to see in the Raspberry Pi 4?

Well, I'm hoping for a mature discussion/wish list cause I'm curious about what other people would like to see in the Raspberry Pi 4. I can live with the current ethernet speeds even though my cable internet is 200 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up. I also hardly use the USB ports, so I don't really need USB...

Which 3 things do you want to see in the Raspberry Pi 4?

Which 3 things would you like to see in the Raspberry Pi 4? Here's my list: 1) Much faster I/O system (I believe the current limit is 25 MB/s for sequential reads/writes, I'd like to see 75 or 100 MB/s and also faster 4K random read/write speeds). 2) More RAM (2 GB maybe?) 3) Faster CPU that runs co...

Re: Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1

I ran a benchmark on my Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.1 to measure the CPU temp under full load. My setup: - Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.1 (default clock speed) - Raspberry Pi 2 Heat Sink - Anidees Raspberry Pi 2 / 3 Uni-body Aluminum Case (Silver) - Samsung microSD PRO+ 64 GB (MB-MD64DA/EU) - Latest and ...

Re: Why Debian?

I'm actually glad they used a Debian based OS. I've used so many linux distributions in the past (Red Hat, SUSE, Mandrake, Debian, Gentoo, Slackware, Ubuntu...) and my favourite one is still Debian. Simply love apt-get.

Ok, thanks for the replies. I've allocated 16MB RAM to the GPU. :)

Safe to use 16MB RAM (GPU) on headless Pi running Rasp Lite?

My Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.1 is running the latest Raspbian Jessie Lite. It's running headless and I connect to it via SSH. It basically acts as a lightweight server for me. So I was thinking about allocating more RAM to the system and less to the GPU (16MB) via raspi-config. However, after search...

Re: Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1

Could you run a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.2 @ 1200 Mhz? If I've understood JDB then the answer is no - at least not without overvolting. And with sufficient overvolting you'd end up dissipating just as much heat as a genuine Pi3. This makes sense. But I guess it would still be able to run at 1 Ghz ...

Re: Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1

This makes me wonder though... Could you run a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.2 @ 1200 Mhz? Since I guess that would also mean it would run cooler than a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B V1.2 @ 1200 Mhz?

Re: Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1

The Pi2 v1.2 runs cooler at 900MHz than the Pi3 at 900MHz because the AVS targets for Pi2 v1.2 are lower. AVS is a complex subject but in short, at production test we use features inside the SoC (free-running ring oscillators) that allow us to measure the performance of each individual chip and tai...

Re: Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1

I don't have a Pi2 v1.2, so I compared the speeds of a Pi2 v1.1 at 900MHz and a Pi3 underclocked to the same frequency. The Pi3 ran noticeably faster: 19% calculating pi, and 15% faster transcoding audio. I also tested the Pi3 at the default 1200MHz, and speed scaled exactly as you'd expect with cl...

Nobody with more info on this? :( Only thing I can find about the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.2 are the specs. No benchmarks or anything like that. I've checked youTube, can't find any. Be nice to know if the 1.2 Pi2 is the same, for sure. For me a slightly paranoid chap who know's he'll leave the wi...

Re: Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1

I replaced both of my 2B's with 3B's. One is running Raspbian, the other LibreElec/KODI. Boot times and overall performance is noticeably faster with the 3B. I use the WIFI on the one running Raspbian, its a portable setup that gets mover around a bit. The KODI Pi is using an Ethernet connection, t...

Yes, in that case Raspbian Lite is the best option for you.

Perf/temp differences between Pi2B V1.1/V1.2 and Pi3B V1.2

I currently own two Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.1 boards. I like the no-nonsense layout of the board (no WiFi and no BT onboard). I'm running the latest Raspbian Lite on one Raspberry Pi 2 and LibreELEC on the other Raspberry Pi 2. Things that interest me are performance, CPU temp and power consumptio...

Re: setting up RPI3 as headless

Correct. Raspbian Lite lacks the graphical desktop environment (X). It's more like a very basic version of Raspbian without all the bells and whistles. Personally I think the Raspberry Pi lacks a bit of power to run as a normal desktop PC with a graphical environment (at least by today's standards)....

Re: setting up RPI3 as headless

I've been using my Raspberry Pi 2 Model B headless since the start. The only 2 cables connected to it are a power cable and a network cable. I'm running the latest version of Raspbian Lite on it. What I've done in a nutshell to achieve this: - Download the latest Raspbian Lite image on the Raspberry...
