With the advent of the new SoC as part of the Raspberry Pi 4, we have also brought with it a USB 3.0 connection amidst other things. Part of this functionality requires certain high-speed pathways from the processor, and those allow for a standard called PCI Express.   Those of you who are familiar with typical Personal Computers (PC) will be familiar with PCIe, especially if you build your own computer. It's the current standard used for expansion hardware, and allows connections to WiFi, ...
Reddit user xCP23x managed to take these awesome shots of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with an X-Ray machine, don't they look cool?!           We already had thermal images, wish x-ray images could be more of a regular thing! What do you think? ...
  Next Biggest Breakthrough for Raspberry Pi is here!       Today I successfully compiled OpenCL on raspberry pi 3, Opening the door for numerous GPU possibilities for Raspberry Pi, Love the performance in FFMPEG(1080p rendering) and now looking forward to Deep-Learning applications on this little beast.       VC4CL is a newer effort bringing OpenCL to the Broadcom VideoCore IV GPUs as found in the Raspberry Pi boards. VC4CL implements OpenCL 1.2 for the Vid ...
I'm not sure how I managed to miss this, perhaps because it's still in 'developer preview', but a version of Android is officially available for the Raspberry Pi 3.   If you're really keen, you can download the image here for the developer preview 3.1.   Thanks to the recent release of Google's AIY Project with the latest version of the MagPi magazine (already selling for £40+ on ebay), the official guide for the project which is rumored to be on sale at a later date from Go ...
Almost everyone has heard of RetroPie.     The open source software which has enabled a bunch of Ikea tables with embedded Raspberry Pi.   Unfortunately, they've recently learnt a bitter lesson in trademarks, that unless you get there first, someone else can pull the rug out from under your feet, as the makers behind RetroPie call out for legal help.     Amazingly, someone from India has setup a website selling Raspberry Pi's with the software on the SDCards, some ...
This's a pretty clever design, and I thought to myself "it wouldn't take much to make these into actual cartridges, if the Pi Compute was used as an edge connector".   Still, the images speak for themselves, and the creator used Berryboot to allow the OSs to be changed easily.   Raspberry SUPER PI Super Pi: Switch OS by switching cartridges Super Pi: Looks almost like a SNES Super Pi: Especially when next to a controller   Source: Imgur Gallery / blog     ...
Edit: Since writing this item, Linux Kernel 4.8 has official support for the BCM2837 chip on the Raspberry Pi 3 (and now v1.2 of the Pi 2), and the Android kernel also has support for the chip, which has prompted a community build of Nougat for the Pi 3.   Edit 2: Google has now released an official version of Android for the Raspberry Pi 3.   There has been slight evidence that Google are working on an operating system for the Raspberry Pi with a git repository appearing in the Rasp ...
Thanks to Gareth Halfacree, whom took a series of photographs of the Raspberry Pi processor under heavy load, I think. Note there's no load on the GPU in these photographs. You can see how potentially hot each processor chip of the Raspberry Pi get. These are at stock processing speeds with no overclock and using sysbench to push the CPU.   element14 does sell Raspberry Pi Heatsinks   Raspberry Pi Operating Temperatures Normalised Scale Raspberry Pi 1 Model A+: Normalised Temperat ...
NEW! Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Frequently Asked Questions Comparison Chart Technical Specifications 40 Pin Out Pi3 Video Arcade Project   Our good friend biglesp put the Raspberry Pi 2 to the test the last time around, though I feel that he missed a good number of possible benchmarks to run on the hardware. With that in mind, I'm going to test the main boards of the Raspberry Pi that I can get my hands on and not only run the main benchmarks Les ran, but also a good few more thanks to Roy L ...
