The score of 0.18
is three times faster than your score of 0.06 for the Pi 3B.
Thanks for the measurement!
2x faster than supersupersuperslow is supersuperslow
3x faster than supersupersuperslow is superslow
So it's still superslow
In comparison, on my 10yr old budget PC hardware
(originally designed for WinXP) the benchmark score is 0.64
, which is still 3.5x faster than your 2019 raspi4. And the common Mma user would agree that 0.64 is not really acceptable. If i just wanted to write Wolfram L
code, then the performance of the Mma GUI doesn't matter too much. But for running a computensive Mma program, 0.64 is hardly acceptable let alone 0.18 or the ridiculous 0.06.
Of course i appreciate having Mma on the raspi. This gives me alternative 'mobile access' to the software for on-the-road
coding or mathematical calculations.
: Mma performs 3x faster on the raspi4 than on the raspi3. However, that is still so much slower than on any budget desktop PC which hit the market 10yrs ago. Most raspi users who play with the Mma application for the very first time will be mostly likely turned off by that superslow experience. It is unthinkable that first-time users get hooked on the Mma application after the raspi experience.
