Abstract This article aims to analyze the historical evolution of the cost/performance ratio of the Raspberry Pi family of computers, given their representativeness in the field of single-board computers. While comparing the cost/performance ratio of different models of single-board computers is not a new idea, there are no studies focused on evaluating the performance evolution and associated costs of all generations of the Raspberry Pi B line. Our analysis considered all generations of Raspberry Pi B line available on the market until 2023, and we adjusted computer prices based on the 2012 dollar value, the year of the first Raspberry Pi’s launch.
