I appreciate the non-trivial amount of work that went into this post. I don’t have any of these devices but thanks for all the testing.

Thank you for this. I use a Pi4 as a desktop and it (mostly) copes. Just enough grind to run Blender and do simple modelling, then Slic3r to print it.

Great read! Thanks for taking the time to do all that and then posting it for the rest of us.

Excellent work. This was all very useful.
I know you recommend the Pi4 over the Nano as a desktop, but what about as a network server? The RPI series has become famous as a poor mans server.
If you have the time, some other interesting benchmarks might be: * Power consumption - Overclocking the Pi4 for desktop is fine, but how much extra power does it consume? * Network (LAN and WAN) speed - All ARMs suck at small block transfers to USB and SD, but the Pi4 and the Nano both have gigabit ethernet speeds. That might well make it faster to use a NAS.

Really, I wouldn’t buy a Nano at this point. The Pi4 is just all around better. In terms of power consumption, it’s still quite small compared to other full featured systems, so I’m not sure a watt or two difference really matters.

Apparently its also possible to overclock the jetson nano to 2GHz.
