Re: RPi 3 SoC at nearly 100 °C, reporting 80 °C

Hmm, my Pi3 works fine. Extra performance, no heatsink, no problems with bandwidth. It's just faster. 40nm was the cheapest option. Going to a smaller process was too expensive. It's basically a chip redesign - you don't just change a number in the fab, you need lots of reworked blocks that work at...

Re: RPi 3 SoC at nearly 100 °C, reporting 80 °C

Also the RPi 2 was already hitting the bus limit, there is no point to have a V8 engine on a tricycle. I don't think that's true at all. Overclocking experiments on a Pi2B have returned almost linearly scaling benefits with increasing CPU, GPU and RAM clock speeds in benchmarks for me. By default, ...

Re: RPi 3 SoC at nearly 100 °C, reporting 80 °C

Well, if you are not happy with it, send it back. But consider first - the cores have changed to give 50% extra performance, and that performance produces heat. Did you expect the same thermal behaviour (not physically possible btw)? All Pi's use the same governor system, so when they get too hot t...

Old updated SD card with Jessie? That does not compute, Jessie was released a few weeks ago.

There should be clear instructions that you need jessie to run RPi3.

There are official people on this forum, this is a nobrainer.

Re: Old updated SD card RPi 3 no ethernet

Ok, you need to install a fresh Jessie it seems.

Maybe it's because I used the same SD card for my Zero?!

Anywho, nobody cares about fringe cases right.

Really the bus and memory needed upgrading more than the CPU = new platform.

Re: Early RPi 2 randomly segmentation faults process

Exactly, so I'm trying to figure out if it's a one time freak occurrence or if others with early RPi2 from the white black latch factory are seeing failures too after 1 year of 24/7 operations.

Re: Early RPi 2 randomly segmentation faults process

So the white latches are just to point out it's one of the first RPi 2 out of the factory. And not the same factory as todays RPi 2, the metal on the HDMI port is different too (matte aluminium instead of dark shiny). Edit: Precisely AndyD. I have changed nothing, it has been running flawlessly for ...

Early RPi 2 randomly segmentation faults process

The RPi 2 I bought directly after release from pimoroni has started behaving weirdly.

It has black camera and screen latches instead of white.

Anyone had the same experience?

My other 4x RPi 2 (white latches) are 100% stable.
