    Phoronix: Raspberry Pi 2 Linux Benchmarks: Arch, Raspbian & Overclocking

    Thanks to the open-source Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org, there's already many benchmarks of the new quad-core Raspberry Pi 2...

    Some impressive results vs the old PI.

    Micheal, please consider comparing this board with Atom and Brazos based solutions. Considering the cost this board is looking to be fairly impressive.

      1502110-LI-RASPBERRY41 (Arch) is listed twice, instead of the Debian Jessie benchmark?

        Are they going to fix the problem where bright light causes the whole RPi2 to reset?.. I don't want to buy one until they fix such a massive flaw..

          "Massive flaw"? What does that even matter?

            The "flaw" only concerns a boost in specific wave lengths, on a component you can easily hide.

            So, they weren't lying when they said "x6 performance". I know some people looking at using it for daily owncloud use, this one definitely makes it worth the cost. And many, many other uses, benefiting from paralel computing.

              Nice results. Won't buy the Pi2 because no Gigabit LAN. But there are many alternatives even if they don't have such a big community.
              http://openbenchmarking.org/result/1...LI-RASPBERRY41 and is useless without the 900MHz default clock reference.

                Versioning of HW

                Versioning of the board misleading IMO. They just changed the CPU part of the SoC just like putting double the memory it has before so they would name it say RPi Model C from harware point of view.

                  Actually, there are some other variations, too.

                  From what I've read, some connectors were slightly shifted (to the point some cases stopped being compatible). Plus, they had to rearrange traces to account for a non-PoP memory configuration, and the new board components.

                  Whether that grants it the new "2" moniker or not is debatable, but the SoC was not the only thing changed.

                  Now, if only the new version had a more powerful GPU, in terms of video decoding and audio passthrough...

                    Going from single to four core, plus moving from "old" armv6 to armv7, is somewhat making a huge difference in term of use cases. Yeah the videocore stays the same, but it's already performant regarding video (hence its name, I guess). The layout is almost the same, but it's not like it is not suitable like that, or the project would not have gained so much interest from all over the world in so many projects.

                    Android Manufacturers usually bumps cpus, ram, storage, screen in their smartphones, they bump version each time also...
