Speed Testing Pi-Cast KVM

by vileer d

After the project launched, we got a question about how the speed performance of the USB 3.0 Ethernet on the Pi-Cast KVM compared to other kinds of connections. Is it as fast as regular RJ45 Ethernet? So, we did a speed test benchmark over various connections for your reference.

Test on a CM4 Lite Module with 2G RAM and Wifi (CM4102000)

USB 3.0 EthernetRJ45 EthernetUSB2.0 RNDIS5G Wifi2.4G WiFi
UP Rate942 Mbps944 Mps220 Mbps79.7 Mbps15.1 Mbps
Down Rate942 Mbps943 Mps217 Mbps78 Mbps11.3 Mbps

The USB 3.0 Ethernet is almost 4x faster than the USB2.0 RNDIS, and 62(2.4 G)/12(5 G) times faster than the CM4 onboard wifi. It’s almost the same speed as directly connecting over regular RJ45 ethernet.

If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to ask us through Ask a Question link on our campaign page.
