Running Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Headless

Sat Dec 08, 2018 10:38 pm

Hi

I am running my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ headless as a server

Can I use its GPU's power and and (or) memory for other purposes as there is going to be no graphical interface used.

Cheers

Peter Skinner..

Since the GPU is not going to be used you can set the memory split to 16 to give maximum memory to the CPU.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.

Split done. Now down to 16 from 64. Every bit helps.

Thanks for your help.
