If you search you will find many Cluster Posts and Blogs, this recent posts list a few:3721 wrote:Hi,
Today I saw a video about Raspberry Pi 1 Cluster (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R0UgIgcb5g) and I want to replace my PC with Cluster made of 16 Raspberry Pi Zero, small, cheap (less than 100$), and powerful (16 x Single core 1Ghz processor, 8GB RAM). I did a little research and found that Pi Zero has ARMv7 with RISC architecture processor, and I think that CISC architecture is faster and better. Please let me know which is better and should I replace my PC with cluster.
As already mentioned, a PC is rather different than a cluster of Pi Zeros. Which is better for the task at hand depends on the task at hand. The Pi Zero definitely lends itself to experimenting with clusters because of the price and the ability to run the USB port in device mode with the Linux gadget driver. Ideas about building a cluster using the Pi Zero were discussed in this forum last month. The main impediment to building such a cluster is a lack of Pi Zero availability.3721 wrote:Thanks
It is a nice quote even if unattributed. Given the use of the Pi in toy robotics projects, harnessing the GPU in the zero for image processing and to run neural networks would be interesting.Rod Young wrote:'' Selection of a problem that parallel GPUs could operate on could result in some interesting results, but these cases are left to the reader to discover.''
I have lost the thread where I copied this quote from and the name of the person also.
He was saying the GPU on the Pi zero has some interesting opertinuties.
