The difference of performance between 3 versions of Raspberry Pi, the comparison.

I have the basic benckmarks for Raspberry Pi version 1, 2 and 3, and here is the comparison, all the benchmarks on different Pis are using the same operating system / package, so there won’t be a difference from the version of software.

The testing platform:

RASPBIAN JESSIE
Version: February 2016
Release date: 2016-02-26
Kernel version: 4.1

Since I just did these benchmarks on Raspberry Pi 3:

https://www.peterdavehello.org/2016/03/raspberry-pi-3-model-b-basic-benchmarks/

The Raspbian and all the softwares are up to date, so the benchmark results of Raspberry Pi 3 are just copied from that post, they are the same result. The results from Pi 1/2 are whole new tested, in fact they are very close to the test results I did before, I would say they are all in the tolerance scope, so I’ll just ignore the detail of the benchmarks, only focus on the final results, the performance.

PHP benchmark Script using PHP 5.6.17-0+deb8u1: (in secs, the lower the better)
Raspberry Pi model B+ – 141.145
Raspberry Pi 2 model B – 48.113, 293% faster than Pi 1
Raspberry Pi 3 model B – 26.984, 523% faster than Pi 1, 178% faster than Pi 2

PHP benchmark Script using PHP 7.0.3-5: (in secs, the lower the better)
Raspberry Pi model B+ – 48.153
Raspberry Pi 2 model B – 17.27, 279% faster than Pi 1
Raspberry Pi 3 model B – 10.239, 470% faster than Pi 1, 169% faster than Pi 2

sysbench v0.4.12 single thread: (cpumaxprime=20000,in secs, the lower the better)
Raspberry Pi model B+ – 1332.0115
Raspberry Pi 2 model B – 765.2441, 174% faster than Pi 1
Raspberry Pi 3 model B – 478.0941, 748% faster than Pi 1, 160% faster than Pi 2

Raspberry Pi 3 model B basic benchmarks

As the benchmarks I ran on Raspberry Pi B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 model B, let’s do some basic benchmarks on the latest Raspberry Pi 3.

Let’s have some photos first:

RaspberryPi-3-DSC_0277

RaspberryPi-3-DSC_0278

RaspberryPi-3-DSC_0279

RaspberryPi-3-DSC_0280

My Raspberry Pi 3 crashed during the benchmarking … so I just added a heat sink on it …
RaspberryPi-3-DSC_0281

This is the testing platform:

Kernel version: 4.1

Here are the benchmarks result:

LAMP Web Server 網頁伺服器快速建置入門

前言 …

LAMP 為 Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP 這種網站伺服器組合的簡稱,分別代表著

  1. 作業系統
  2. http 伺服器
  3. 資料庫
  4. 網頁後端語言

LAMP 可說是目前非常廣泛被使用的網站建置環境組合,另外也有將其中組合抽換為其它相同功能但不同產品的組合,例如把 Linux 改為 FreeBSD 或 Windows 的 FAMP、WAMP,把 Apache 改為 NGINX 的 LNMP 等,其中的 Linux distribution (分支) 又以 Debian / Ubuntu 最為熱門,本篇不例外是使用 Ubuntu / Debian 作為示範,但基本上基於 Debian 以及 Ubuntu 的 GNU/Linux distributions 都適用。

根據 W3Techs 的統計,Linux 在 web server 的作業系統市佔率高達 36.2% ( Unix 佔總共的 68%、Linux 佔其中的 53.2% ),其中 Debian / Ubuntu 就分別佔了 Linux 的 32.6% / 31.1%:

w3techs-usage-of-operatingSystems-unix-Mar-1-2016

Aapache 的 Web Server 領域更是有著 55% 過半的驚人市佔率:

w3techs-usage-of-WebServers-Mar-1-2016

資料請參考 W3Techs :

說到寫這篇的原因,主要是前陣子因為 推坑 推薦 不少人來使用 WordPress 撰寫部落格、筆記,WordPress 目前已經擁有高達 26% 的網頁市佔率,平均每四個網站就有一個是使用 WordPress 架設,可想而知 WordPress 不管是在社群、生態系方便都已經相當成熟,考量到自行架設 WordPress 會比直接使用 WordPress.com 現成的服務來的更有彈性、功能更加強大,同時又可以學技術,但對於初學者對於遇到問題的恐懼一直是最大的阻礙,故撰寫這份 LAMP 簡易安裝筆記供入門者參考,對於其他同樣使用 PHP 語言的網站平台基本上都適用。

Raspberry Pi (1) Model B+ basic benchmarks

hmmmm … I’ve made some simple and basic benchmarks on Roseapple Pi and Raspberry Pi 2, so here come the very late benchmarks(HardinfosysbenchPHP benchmark Script) on the first generation Raspberry Pi. Actually, I bought the Raspberry Pi Model B very early, and the experience about the performance of it is not so good, to do some benchmarks is just for understanding the performance difference.

I’m using Model B+ here, which has the same chip Broadcom BCM2835 as Model be does, although it has larger main memory than Model A+, due to the benchmarks are very simple, and focus on CPU, so I don’t expect a notable performance difference between model A+ and B+(or model B).

The post about Roseapple Pi benchmark:

The post about Raspberry Pi 2 model B benchmark:

https://www.peterdavehello.org/2016/02/raspberry-pi-2-model-b-basic-benchmark/

In this post, the platform is Raspberry Pi (1st gen) model B+ using Raspbian Jessie.

The info of the Raspbian image I used:

Version: February 2016
Release date: 2016-02-09
Kernel version: 4.1

Here are the test results:

Raspberry Pi 2 model B basic benchmarks

Just want to compare Raspberry Pi 2’s performance with Roseapple Pi’s, not only which one is faster, but also how faster, so I just did the same basic benchmarks on Raspberry Pi 2, and maybe will also do the same benchmarks (HardinfosysbenchPHP benchmark Script) on the 1st generation of Raspberry Pi.

Roseapple Pi benchmark:

https://www.peterdavehello.org/2016/02/roseapple-pi-%e8%93%ae%e9%9c%a7%e6%b4%be-%e6%95%88%e8%83%bd%e7%b0%a1%e6%b8%ac-benchmark/

The platform is Raspberry Pi 2 model B using Raspbian Jessie, no Android this time.
