Raspberry Pi 3 Benchmarks vs. Eight Other ARM Linux Boards
Written by Michael Larabel in Computers on 5 March 2016. Page 6 of 6. 45 Comments

Well, those are my initial Raspberry Pi 3 benchmarks I've been running since yesterday when receiving this quad-core Cortex-A53 $35 development board. Stay tuned for more Raspberry Pi 3 benchmarks and I still should have some more out before the weekend is through. Overall, the Raspberry Pi 3 is looking like a nice upgrade over the Raspberry Pi 2 for much better performance along with having 802.11n WiFi and other new features. Hopefully there will be an official Raspbian release in the near future that provides 64-bit software builds for the Raspberry Pi 3, but then again the board may hit a wall due to having just 1GB of RAM.

If you would like to see how your own Linux x86/ARM hardware compares, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1603058-GA-RASPBERRY01 to conduct your own fully-automated, side-by-side performance comparison against the results shown in this article.

If you would like to support all of the Linux hardware testing I carry out on Phoronix seven days a week single-handedly, please consider subscribing to Phoronix Premium or making a PayPal tip as this site can only operate through people supporting the site through those means and viewing the site without ad-blockers as the main source of income needed to cover expenses, hardware costs, etc. Thanks for your support.

Update: I did finish some more standalone results of the Raspberry Pi 3 with a couple extra benchmarks prior to this article going live... You can dig through some extra standalone RPi3 performance data via 1603052-GA-RASPBERRY54 on OpenBenchmarking.org. Like mentioned above, if you want to run your own performance comparison, simply execute phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1603052-GA-RASPBERRY54 on your Linux system(s).

Update: I have finished some ODROID-C2 vs. Raspberry Pi 3 benchmarks that are quite fascinating to say the least.
