Here are benchmarks of ten different ARM SBCs/boards including the Banana Pi M3, ODROID-XU4, ODROID-C2, Raspberry Pi 3, Orange Pi PC, Orange Pi Plus, Orange Pi One, ODROID-C1+, Banana Pi M2, and the Raspberry Pi 2 using their respective flavors of Ubuntu/Debian/Raspbian/Armbian.

On Friday I posted some benchmarks of the $10 Orange Pi One but it turns out there can be even greater performance when not using the official images for the Orange Pi One but rather the community-maintained images are in much better shape. Over friends at (who have supplied us with many of our ARM boards for Linux testing) have run some of their own benchmarks using the latest Linux ISO images on ten different ARM SBCs.

They did their benchmarking of the ODROIDs, Raspberry Pis, Orange Pis, and Banana Pis using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software and uploaded their results to

Lots of interesting data!

They also made use of our performance-per-dollar benchmarking feature.

You can see all of the results in full via this result file. Go check it out!

If you are in the market for an ARM board, be sure to stop by LoveRPI's Amazon store.
