Raspberry Pi 2 vs. Raspberry Pi B+ & Beaglebone #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Nice comparison between the Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi B+, and Beaglebone from initial state.

About a month ago I published a comparison between the Raspberry Pi B+ and Beaglebone Black. It wasn’t very long after that that Raspberry Pi caused quite a hubbub with the release of the Raspberry Pi 2. This new little guy boasts 4 cores and an ARMv7 processor.

It took a while to get my hands on one, but once I did I wanted to run the same performance test that I did on the B+ and Beaglebone Black. This basic comparison looks at CPU performance while running a simple script.
Instead of messing with the settings and background tasks of the computers, I decided to run the test in their basic boot environment (command line, not GUI) for a more “practical” comparison (since you’d actually be using this environment for your projects).

I used the same script from my tutorial on monitoring computer performance to see average CPU usage before, during, and after running the stress test script.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
