So next one will be revolutionary?whatever we do next will of necessity be less of an evolution
Yea, bit of a disappointment. Reasons may be a combination of cost saving and less power usage.
Cost. The A range has always had less memory to keep costs down, not sure why this would be a surprise.
Revolutionary. The Pi4 looks pretty good to me! 5 and 6 also have impressive specs, although subject to change this far ahead, and there's a lot of work required for them.Gavinmc42 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 9:44 amSo next one will be revolutionary?whatever we do next will of necessity be less of an evolution
Less of an evolution is Devolution?
Anyway, time to practice coding tighter.
Mobil robots with CV?
I guess this means full steam ahead with Pi4, perhaps roadmap for 5, 6 ?
lets make a wild guess
The A+ sort of could, but the full size socket doesn't have the extra select pin.
That will please W. H. Heydt who has long argued the case for having a 3A+.So 3A+ is about closing things out in style answering one of our most frequent customer requests

Takes about an hour to get from github to the website.
I cannot think of a single feature request made on the forums that hasn't already been thought of internally, which is one of the reasons why threads on the subject get locked. RPF(T) know what is possible and what is impossible, we also know what other competitor products provide, we also know future chip development plans from suppliers. We also know what we can do to meet price points given technological advancements, and general chip pricing. We know a lot about the market we are in. If I ever see something on the forums that I think "Ooh, that's a good idea" it gets passed on. That has happened about twice in 7 years, and both had, IIRC, been already considered.hippy wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 10:35 amThat will please W. H.

I'm not sure though how these frequent requests make it through to Eben seeing how any discussion of desired product or features is quickly shut down on the forum with some members regularly being quick off the mark to tell us that such requests are "pi in the sky thinking" and making the case for new product is "just hot air and insulting to RPT/RPF".
I am waiting for it to be sent to me so I can upload it, don't know what the schedule is.
There should be no limit to sales quantities of the 3A+. Might be limits in the first few days if everyone rushes to buy at once, but shouldn't be long before you can buy in whatever quantities you want.
This sort of post I find odd. We have a range of devices, from $5 to $10 to $15 to $20 to $25 to $35. For that money you get an increasing scale of features. You basically get what you pay for! You want 1GB? Buy a 3B+.fanoush wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:55 amThe A came when there was no Zero, now Zero was the way to keep cost and memory down. Yes, it is understandable why it has 512 but still I am a bit surprised you did this in year 2018. Probably sensible business decision to not to eat B+ profits (as 512 makes sure it is hardly usable as desktop) while still having many use cases. Will be good paired with DVB-T2 hat and media center
The Foundation do seem to have managed a good spread of price / performance / features. Currently it seems to me to be, roughly -

No Wi-Fi No Wi-Fi Wi-Fi Wi-Fi No LAN LAN No LAN LAN 4 : - 2B 3A+ 3B/3B+ Cores 1 : A/A+ / Zero B/B+ Zero W -

Zero profit, or close, to does imply that the people who sell it make no money on it, so therefor subsidise it in that it costs money to sell product.
