ARM64 – Pi3 64-Bit Tribulations.. Too Soon for Stability.. — 1 Comment

  1. Others report a dramatic 64 bit speed-up with some tasks on these cores. The Pi3’s memory constraints aren’t going to impact much on any software that isn’t actually constrained. Finally, the relative immaturity of gcc’s Arm8 back-end might mean there is more improvement ahead.

    In other words, as so often in engineering, we know nothing really until we’ve actually tried and measured it. Which is why I’m quite interested in the Pi3 64 bit work. I had a mind to give the current state of play a whirl, but I think I’ll hold off for a month or two – thanks for the write-up, you just saved me an afternoon 🙂
