      Wow, this is great! Everything is pretty much what I expected, except that I was a bit surprised quite how well the ASUS Tinkerboard did.

      A couple important not to be missed:
      Security Details-
      Celeron N2820, Celeron J3455: KPTI + __user pointer sanitization + Full generic retpoline Protection
      Also, note that the Celerons are both in single-channel memory configurations. Otherwise, I think the gap with the i3 wouldn't have been so large.

        Hi Michael,

        I think your conclusions about the Pi 3 B+ thermal management is a bit more complicated than you show.

        The Pi 3 is largely thermally limited and will quickly throttle its frequency when hitting the maximum die temperature. The default is +85C (measured with "vcgencmd measure_temp", and can be changed by setting "temp_limit" in /boot/config.txt). From the thermal measurements it looks like the B+ has a lower default temperature limit of ~70C and is running into the limit for large parts of the test. When adding a heatsink, the maximum temperature is not lowered, but it allows the Pi to run at a higher clock speed. I have verified that on my own Pi 3.

        So effectively you are over clocking the Pi by adding a heat sink and thereby skewing the results!

        It would be very interesting to have graph for the ARM core frequency in addition to the "System Temperature Monitor" and see the performance impact of adding heatsinks to the Pi. You can measure the ARM core frequency with the command "vcgencmd measure_clock arm". To me it looks like the performance increase of the Pi 3 B+ CPU is mainly achieved by adding a metal heat spreader to the CPU package.

        Cheers

          True, but it's the OS supported by the much bragged about Foundation. It might add a nice dimension to see a comparison between Raspbian and some more optimized distro.

            Meh. All these Pi-toys are mostly crap.
            They are used by ignoratn crowd that doen't have a clue about using a proper microcontroller, usually with Linux and bloated userland which gets mostly in the way of their "mission goal".

            To top it off, they have miniscule I/O, all at not-that-low price.

            If I would go for such board, I don't see a reason to look past Samsung's Artik and perhaps, were it still live and kicking, Parallela.
            And Redpitaya.

            Everything else is big stinking pile of seeds/wanabee-fruits that went trough digestive tract of long line of crapeaters.

              Based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mali_(GPU) I figure the RK3399's MP4 implementation of Mali-T860, at its specified 600 MHz, should deliver 81.6 fp32 GFLOPS. Whether or not that should be regarded as good depends on how much power it consumes, but it won't hold a candle to Tegra TX-1's 500 fp32 GFLOPS (and fp16 is double that). However, TX-1's power envelope is ~10 W.

                This thing is not that small anymore. Since it needs a vent, its power consumption seems to be in 5W range an neither is it that cheap.

                So, why exactly would one use it instead of some board with Atom etc ?

                Whole point of such platforms, at leat in my view, is to have something a bit more than a smart microcontroller, that can do multitasking, feed a monitor or a camera and send stuff over network without that much of processing.

                For anything over that there are better options already.

                  I have no idea about that too, i have AMD AM1 from year 2014 it is like low power PC Desktop. That had a price back then about $120 that for top APU, mobo and 4 GB DDR3 memory. GPU Kabini in this Athlon 5350 is about 192 GFLOPS... it is not intended to, but i also run this fanless too

                  What to say, from mine POV these SBCs make sense if bellow $100 price really - and nope, i don't like to see any fan on these

                  I even think If AMD update this low power line with something new low power desktop APU done with 14 nm or maybe even 12 nm, these SBCs above $100 will cry

                  On that point, there is no points left - only point is just because it is ARM. So if someone wanna ARM, there is no much talk left.

                  When it comes to pricing people probably have no idea that difference between $50 to $100 down there is the same as difference of $500 to $1000 up there Both are double the price, could be already too much

                  That Asus Tinkerboard sounds most sexy to me here... it is $60, could be found for $50 with deal and is pretty much matured already when it comes to software.

                    Yes, it's true that Raspbian is what most people will run and it's certainly important to give them an idea what to expect when they use it. But should be labelled something like "RPI 3 running Raspbian", because the machine itself is capable of more. If someone likes the RPi but feels that it falls short of his needs on performance, it would be good to know whether changing the software is all it takes to get a noticeable boost.

                      Note that the case is an accessory. And that is literally the very first case anyone had made for it, since that board was in the initial pre-production run.

                      That's funny, because a 10 Watt Apollo Lake Atom is exactly what replaced my Pi. It was about $100, without memory or PSU. I could've gone with a 6 Watt model, but it's running on A/C power and spends most of its time idling.

                      http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/J4205-ITX/index.us.asp

                      This is now 1.5 years old. Anyone interested should look at this, or one of the other Gemini Lake models.

                      http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/J5005-ITX/index.us.asp

                      I just wish they came in something smaller - like mini-STX form factor.

                      The Pentium J4205's HD Graphics 505 provides between 57.6 (at base clock) and 216 fp32 GFLOPS (burst). Or you get double that performance, for fp16. As you see, it's designed to run fanless (a requirement of mine).

                      I'm sure you can put a big heatsink on the RK3399. If it's more power-efficient than what we're discussing, then that's one point in favor of it.

                      Also, I'm not aware of a Pi-class board with an Apollo Lake or Gemini Lake CPU for only ~$100. Up Board has an older-generation Atom starting at $89 (with 1 GB RAM), but it's both lower-power and lower-clocked. The Apollo Lake models start at $145 for dual-core (2 GB) or $229 for quad-core (4 GB).

                      https://up-shop.org/4-up-boards#

                      Going back to the ODROID-N1, another thing to consider is that this isn't their first board at this price or performance level. I think the XU4 launched at around $89. Accordingly, they're probably aware of the market conditions around that price and power dissipation level.
