If I'd hazard a guess I'd say the Pi 3 will be that much faster or close: 1 GB vs 512 MB, 4 cores @1.2 Ghz vs 1 core @1 Ghz, and more important for multi-precision code, 64-bit vs 32-bit (provided Pi 3 now comes with a 64-bit userland filesystem). But that's only a guess

Can GMP-ECM use multiple threads?

The Pi Zero has the same single-core CPU as the original A & B models, but clocked at 1 GHz instead of 700 MHz.

The Pi 2 has the quad-core Cortex-A7 and the Pi 3 has the Cortex-A53. The latter is 64-bit while the other CPUs are 32-bit.

We are no longer using our NUC. If someone wants it for a good price, please PM us. Thanks!

Inside its tiny 20cm-by-20cm footprint sits a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor and an Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card, giving it enough graphics grunt to power games at the highest settings, even at resolutions above 1080p.

Intel's latest effort in this arena is its new "Compute Card," a small 94.5mm by 55mm by 5mm slab that includes a CPU and GPU, RAM, storage, and wireless connectivity.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 preview:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/11201/...rmance-preview

Semi-custom Kryo 280 cores (heavily based on ARM Cortex A73) on Samsungs 10nm LPE (Low Power Early).
Not blowing away the competition, but in most benchmarks an improvement over the 820.

It probably won't make it to single board computers, but probably will be in the Samsung Galaxy S8 (the USA version).

When he told me, my reaction was, "for $2500 you could probably set up a dual Xeon system." Now that has caught his attention, and he is asking for advice and details.

I am angling him toward a single hex core i7 on x99 chipset. I was being a bit flippant when I said dual Xeon. I strongly suspect that it would be overkill, even if he does want to render 4K videos really fast.

A 1700 overclocked to 3.9 GHz will give you as much performance for half that. You can also spend a little more an get an 1800X that will do 4.1 GHz on all 8 cores.

Still new technology though.
