Re: GPIO extension cables, should I use them

I wouldn’t be using very long distance, I just wanted to place the sound cards at a different place within a mini case without it sitting on top of the pi etc, do they have shielded extension cables For GPIO

GPIO extension cables, should I use them

I wanted to use a GPIO extension only cause I wanted to add a sound card but not have it sit on top, but I’m concerned about shielding or any interferences or if they have gold plated or shielded versions etc

Pi 4 4K ram usage and performance

When using dial screens or 4 K setting, how much ram does the GPU need ? And also is the OS going to be laggy at 4K or will it work properly

Should I wait for the next revision of the pi 4

Usually I don’t like to buy the first batch or version of a hardware release due to various reasons and they tend to fix a lot of issues the second version that comes around? Does the pi 4 suffer any design issues

Re: Pi 4 firmware, software stability improvements

Thanks, because I know the link is lower then regular USB 3 then it makes sense why it doesn’t perform as a regular USB 3.0 connection, especially with ssd drives and m.2 drives which I’ve seen cap out around 500 mbps or so when usually they go higher etc, oh well at lest it’s still faster then 2.0,...

Re: Pi 4 firmware, software stability improvements

I wonder if the USB 3 port can be improved to work at full speed since it doesn’t allow the full or regular performance of the USB 3 port,

Re: Pi 4 firmware, software stability improvements

Right I’ve seen HD video streams laggy and 4K monitors not smooth, I’m wondering if that’s just because the GPU is not the best, or if 4K was optional but experimental etc,

Pi 4 firmware, software stability improvements

Since the new pi4 has released I’ve seen that it doesn’t perform as well and it needs some improvement, are they able to improve the stability and performance of the pi4 or is this just what it is?

Does the pi 4 support googles software based encryption for fill disk encryption instead of using slower AES since raspberry pi don’t have hardware based crypto enabled
