Re: Stretch to buster

Raspbian Stretch was overall much slower in comparison to Buster if you are concerned updating the OS the main difference between Buster, and Stretch would be program compatibility which will be unavoidable, because not all software was moved to Buster if you had planned to use software not availabl...

Re: latest rpi-update 2.5ghz with 4B 4g

I have already seen several videos about overclocking the RPI4, 1 GHz overclock on the RPI4 that has to be a new record for any RPI computer, the RPI3b+ would be able to overclock to 1.6 GHz any higher clock speeds would prevent the computer from booting, the real test is using the computer with the...

Re: Good reasons to buy the latest Rpi 4 with 4G RAM?

I'm going to say you would be able to use 64 bit operating systems more effectively, the Raspbian operating system is 32 bit designed to run on the RPI computer, a more powerful computer can run more powerful operating systems which will require more ram, for example 32 bit Chromium versus 64 bit Ch...
