Raspbian Cluster

Sun Mar 27, 2016 6:53 pm

How do I create a cluster, and for good gameplay performance, do I need 2 Pi 3's or should I just use 1, or can I add a Pi Zero on for extra performance(For 3D games)? Do clusters have to be on top of each other (I need it to be next to each other).

A cluster of Pi's is only really useful as an education in how clusters can work. It won't give you any usable increase in computing power (except for certain specific applications) and you won't be able to use it with RetroPi.

Okay, I meant to use Raspbian anyway, just seeing if it can do gaming.
