Raspberry Pi has this week introduced a new Turbo Mode for their $35 mini PC, which allows users to over clock their Raspberry Pi computers and squeeze out an extra 50 percent performance from the little device.
It was possible before to up the voltage of your Raspberry PI computer to gain extra processing power and speed but you also said goodbye to your warranty.
The new Raspberry Pi Turbo Mode created by the computers team of developers dynamically enables overclock and overvolt under the control of a cpufreq driver, without voiding your warranty. The Raspberry Pi Foundation explains:
“We are happy that the combination of only applying turbo when busy, and limiting turbo when the BCM2835′s internal temperature reaches 85°C, means there will be no measurable reduction in the lifetime of your Raspberry Pi.”
