Re: (pi4) so how fast is 'entry level pc performance'

Re: 1 GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 Optimization

Heater, I've used zram the first month I started using the RPI, if you have a larger memory card, you can allocate more memory card space to be used as ram space, or swap space, I didn't mention zram, because the RPI needs to use more than 1gb of ram before using the swap space, here is the program ...

Re: 1 GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 Optimization

If you are running several programs at the same time and your computer is less responsive, ram is not the problem, the CPU is the problem, you will see CPU utilization at 100%, which can potentially freeze your computer, talking about the RPI3B+ more specifically, perhaps on the RPI4 1gb of ram will...

Add temp_limit=85 to the bottom of the config.txt file, the default value is 85, change to a different number then reboot to see if the CPU temp stays below the temperature limit, lowering the maximum temperature can lower the CPU speed regardless of the arm_freq value, because higher clock speeds e...
