Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Benchmarks

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (and the other Raspberry Pis too for that matter) were tested using the Raspbian 9.4 release from last week with the Linux 4.9.80-v7+ kernel and GCC 6.3.0 compiler atop the Debian Stretch base. Each ARM SBC tested was using its respective reference/official OS image. The ARM SBCs tested included the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus, ASUS TinkerBoard, ODROID-C2, Pine A64, Jetson TX1, Jetson TX2, and Orange Pi PC. For some x86 data points I also ran these tests on some Intel x86 Ubuntu boxes including the Celeron N2820, Celeron J3455, and Core i3 8100.

First up are some Netperf networking benchmark results using the wired LAN for primarily seeing how the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ compares to the non-Plus variant. Indeed, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus does have much better networking performance... (Note, all tests were done with the same CFLAGS, just on the graphs with short bars, there isn't room to plot the data.)

The Raspberry Pi Foundation talked up the network throughput as being about three times faster with the new RPi board and that claim indeed seems accurate...

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ networking performance though is limited by the controller running off the USB 2.0 bus... The TinkerBoard shows much stronger Gigabit Ethernet performance and generally in line with the x86 systems and their PCI-E based Gigabit Ethernet adapters.
