Re: Expecting Too Much

Afaik the HDD has a slower respond (iops or ms)

You can compare the maximums of the devices with e.g. CrystalDiskMark at a Windows PC.
Fast SD-Cards have a faster response as a HDD.

Yes, this one I have also.
I only was not able to overclock it.

SSD showed me 40/40 read/write speed.

Re: Boot to USB - Painfully slow

Boot in 30 sec. (pi3 screen, sd-card noobs, usb-stick ubuntu-mate screen)
Boot 26 sec. with only fast sd-card. ( http://www.jeffgeerling.com/blogs/jeff- ... crosd-card )

Faster response in Ubuntu-Mate with USB3.0 stick.

For me quite snappy when overclocked+force turbo.

Re: Cooling the Pi3 with a fan.

Thank you ric69 for posting your results.

My experience is quite similar to yours.
Only for me cares the snappiness of my Pi3 as Office Computer more.
10% more time for longer compiling seems to me quite ok.

Re: Expecting Too Much

The "fast" SD-card from the link abbove starts around 3sec quicker then my cheap USB3.0 stick. It seems the 4k read/write speed (small files) is here more important then the sequentiel read/write speed (big files) (Pi3 start screen, noobs boot sd, sd-boot/usb-boot ubuntu-mint, desktopscreen: 27s/30s...

Re: I (partially) burned my Raspberry Pi 3

Thank you for the "stress" test options.
But I will stress my SOC not any more as it runs nicely for my purposes with 1,28Ghz as it is.

(Only wanted to point out, not to run it without heatsink when overclocked)

I did not try the "better" SD cards with higher speed at 4k sized data, but will do soon when I get one of them, to compare USB to "fast" SD.

Re: I (partially) burned my Raspberry Pi 3

i think I can confirm some damaging of the soc by overheating: On my overclocked Pi3 I also saw some frequency degradation after running accidently without heatsink. Before I could run 1300 mhz, overvoltage+2 stable with Wlan enabled, afterwards only 1280 mhz and needed the overvolting also with 125...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Review (extensive)

@mikronauts
Thank you for the review!

I am also interested in how the Odroid C2 will run.

But I almost think without USB3.0 or buying a expensive eMMC storage for the onboard connector to boot from, it will not make "the" difference.

Re: Fast Memory Cards

Nice to see the link I found is useful.

How about wear leveling of the SD-card?
And with overclocking, does it affect some temperature rise in the SD-card or somewhere else?

For long term use, would it be the best to switch to a SSD USB Drive?

Kind Regards

Re: I (partially) burned my Raspberry Pi 3

On Pi 2 it got allowed to overclock without voiding warranty, a lot of people did.

Here nobody should do it without knowing the risk of voiding warranty.
Afaik because it is not tested what it means to the lifecycle of the Pi 3 or if it could destroy something.

Mine is snappy, I am happy...

I would say the difference while starting programs and switching windows was bigger then with overclocking.

Re: I (partially) burned my Raspberry Pi 3

Where can I find Information about which Overclocking settings with the Pi3 are save and will not void warranty?

So force_turbo=1 will not set the waranty bit?
Does overclocking like arm_freq=1250 do?

Do you use an official PSU and cable?
Does the red LED light blink while booting or during the test?

And are the 70°C in idle?
