Max Ethernet Throughput PineA64+
#1
Hello ,

I was investigating the max throughput via Ethernet of the Raspberry Pi3 model B+ since it has supposedly 1000Gbps Ethernet; but since this Ethernet runs over USB 2.0 Bus, it gives supposedly a max throughput of around 300Mbps.


Would like to investigate if this is the same for the Pine A64+ or if this board is more modern in this regard, eg. capable of higher throughputs over Ethernet?


Thank you very much for your answers.

thanks I think the answer is that the pine a64 is actually capable of the 1 Gbps over Ethernet;

tried this with iperf3

and got the results for Pine A64+ (2 GB version)

whereas on the Raspberry Pi2 Model B with a USB 3 Ethernet Dongle (over Usb2.0 port) got the following results

iperf Done.


hence if the Raspberry Pi3 Model B+ still has the Ethernet going over the Usb 2.0 bus, the results should be similar to those of the Raspberry Pi2 Model B.
(please disregard the IP numbers for the SBCs since changed those for this post).
