MVS On the Pi 3B

September 12, 2018

The Pi 3 B is faster than the Zero by a fair margin. 1.2MHz vs 700MHz. It’s also four cores vs the single core Zero although i wouldn’t expect it to make a difference running my single instance of Hercules/MVS. I suspect that there are details that make the single core performance better though. The Pi 3 B cranked out 100,000 Dhrystone passes in about 10 seconds. 10K/sec is 5-6 MIPS vs the Zero’s 2 MIPS.
It’s noticeably faster running the work as well and more responsive on TSO.
