Benchmarking The $25 Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ Performance
Written by Michael Larabel in Computers on 23 November 2018. Page 6 of 6. 26 Comments

For rounding out this initial Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ benchmarking session was checking on the performance-per-dollar of the boards tested.

At $25 USD, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ does offer a lot of value with using the same SoC and performance potential as the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. But with being $10 cheaper you do lose out on wired networking and only 512MB of RAM, which isn't much by today's standards.

Stay tuned for a larger ARM SBC benchmark comparison soon on Phoronix. If you want to see how your own Linux systems/SBC performance compares to the hardware tested in this article, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1811223-SK-MODEL3APL31 for your own fully-automated, side-by-side benchmark comparison.
