Throttling, as I understand, it, on the Pi3 is temperature regulated, and not frequency regulated, that is, if you can keep the unit below 85 degrees Celsius, and push the frequency, you will go faster ...gkreidl wrote:java wrote:What I fail to understand, is here the folks are crying in their milk, that the RPi 3, running stock speeds is overheating. Elsewhere, the folks are doing fairly well overclocking the bejeezers out of their RPi 3's, with and without heatsinks, and mostly smiling.
This does not make much sense to me. I don't have a RPi 3 yet, hopefully the budget will allow me to buy one, come month end.
Got a Pi B, Pi 2 and a Pi Zero - very happy with all of them.
Regarding overclocking the Pi3: it may be possible to overclock the SDRAM or the SD card interface, but overclocking the processor is rather useless, because it will start to throttle down if multiple cores are used to a certain degree.
Whether it is worth, it is a moot point ...
