Could the 3A+ use the older BCM2837?
As the 3B+ becomes the top of the line, does that free up usage of the older part?
64 bit 4 cores is more important than max speed in my opinion.
Does it need the new WiFi combo chip?
Call it a 3A and the 3A+ has the faster WiFi/CPU.
Actually would that make it a Pi2AW?
RPT has a bunch of engineers but not enough to do multiple spins at the same time?
The hint is there that they are very busy, makes me wonder what on
There is still a hole for smaller DSI displays and the Zero does not have a DSI but the A does.
Who ever got 100k A's may be interested in faster version too?
But good software can make up for a lack of speed.
I don't use Linux anymore for gadgets and the single core 2835 is plenty fast enough, somewhat of an overkill
I am still learning AI/CV/ML for smart gadgets where the 4cores, 64bit/NEON is more useful but that is at least 2years away.
The Zero has filled the space where the A is for me and there is in effect three versions of Zero's.
Would a lower power Zero be of more use? For battery powered gadgets?
There is still plenty of life left in the VC4, lots more tricks to be done with it in the embedded market.
Everyone says the IoT market is going to be much bigger than the PC market.
100k A's is not a small number, but it is tiny when compared to the possible total IoT market.
Have not checked, is it 20Million Pi's yet?
Hope those RPT guys are training the next gen of engineers, er whoops, I nearly forgot the mission
Does anyone predict any slow down in the next 5-10years?
Wonder how many models there will be then?
I'm dancing on Rainbows.
