Raspberry Pi vs SPARCstation 20: Fight! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
A couple weeks back, I tweeted the following:
Turns out a Raspberry Pi now is about 6× as fast as a SPARCstation 20 was 20 years ago. And a Pi 2 is more like 15× as fast.
I was a little low in my numbers, too — they’re more like 7× and 16× to 41× as fast — since I was going from memory!
Here’s how I came up with that.
