Although the new Raspberry PI has almost the same hardware under the hood, I couldn’t resist to compare it with its predecessor.
As expected, the outcome of the tests doesn’t show a performance difference between the old and the new version. But although there is no difference in performance, power consumption is another story. During benchmarking, the Pi’s were connected to a bench top power supply to monitor their power consumption. This is the result.
