This Is How Much Hotter The Raspberry Pi 3 Gets Than The Raspberry Pi 2

As part of the numerous Raspberry Pi 3 benchmarks published this weekend, I had an article devoted to how the Raspberry Pi 3 gets rather warm under load. For those interested, here are some follow-up tests showing just how warm the RPi3 gets in comparison to the Raspberry Pi 2.

The result here is an extension of yesterday’s Raspberry Pi 3 thermal SoC testing with adding the Raspberry Pi 2 results with monitoring its SoC temperature via the Phoronix Test Suite while running the same exact benchmarks in the same manner, etc. For those running PTS on your Pi, it’s as easy to record as setting the MONITOR=sys.temp environment variable.
