[ARTICLE] MAME Benchmarks on Raspberry Pi 1/2/3

I’ve run benchmarks on a set of 150 games in MAME. I tried to pick a fair sampling of the classics and the more modern games, I even included a couple of obviously impossible ones. I do seem to have ended up with far too many CPS2 games though!

The benchmarks have been run on the Raspberry Pi Model B, The Raspberry Pi 2 and the Raspberry Pi 3. I ran them Normally and Overclocked.

Check out the results here.

SDL2 Tutorial update

SDL2 is now up to ver 2.0.7 release and 2.0.8 dev. The Raspbian Stretch changes we had to patch the source for have been included into the official source no so I’ve updated the tutorial to fix the process. I’ve also updated the utility library versions to the latest ones and removed the smpeg util library. It was only included because it was a requirement for mp3 support in the mixer library and that has been replaced by mpg123 in the latest version. The smpeg library hasn’t been updated since 2013 and no longer compiles clean.
