Which is the fastest Arduino – ESP32, ESP8266, Arduino Uno, Arduino 101 +Others Speed Test Comparison Chart

This started because I was interested in how the new ESP32 compared against other common Arduino compatible development boards.

Source code Arduino sketch on Github  The source code is based on this post

 

 

Direct link to Google Docs Spreadsheet  – same as embedded below – feel free to make a copy of the spreadsheet and link it below in the comments with new tested cores

Current measurement is for entire dev board so take it with a grain of salt – maybe someday I will go through and isolate just the SOC current draw for these devices which would be much more accurate.

    Interesting info, thanks. It would be awesome to include Microchip’s PIC32MX and PIC32MZ, also dsPIC33EP’s

    If you have the ability to test those chips you can request edit privilege’s to this chart and add the info, I don’t have them easily available.
