Just reading the 2017 annual review:
http://www.oliverquinlan.com/blog/2018/ ... view2017/
and one snippet : 5 Million Pi Model 3B sold in 2017 alone.

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
Just thought it might be worthwhile pointing out that the link in Mikerr's first post is still valid, and still interesting

Those googledocs embedded graphs should update themselves now
{edit} yes they did  great !
is it possible to teach the proper address?
Thanks.
Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
1 Million Pi 4 already

Launched on 24 June  so thats just 2 months (1st million Pi took a year !)

What, one million!?
I don't even have one yet dammit.

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
Know what you mean.
I do have some nice wallpaper though and I've got a bit of a roll end I could send you with a hand drawn Pi on it and we could pretend
Anyway  I'm off to hack the Santa Master Database to make sure I'm on the right list.

That blog post is historical: it was accurate when written, but is now very out of date. It was posted in the Summer of 2014  more than 5 years ago!
It is not 'the latest information'!

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
Well it is guys like you who are stopping this plot from becoming a hockey stickWhat, one million!?
I don't even have one yet dammit.
Normally I get them in pairs but I only have one 1GB, one 2GB and one 4GB Pi's.
Only the Zero's I got in singles.
This tends to indicate production capacity is the limiting factor and perhaps some people have reached saturation?
Still it is an upwards trending plot and that is exponential.
Exponential growth is hard to sustain.
Someone with a more math brain might be able to fit a formula and let us know the prediction for the next 8 years.
Or has the last few years been a straight line due to ram prices?
10Million a year?
Another 8 years is another 80Million?

A log plot would show a straight line and demonstrate if exponential, but needs proper statistical analysis to determine fit.
I am old enough to remember when we did graphical analysis by drawing plots on different graph paper.

See the tweet linked above:W. H. Heydt wrote:... so sales are up to 7 million per year.
Assuming they are not just going into a big warehouse and staying there, that's 67.2 million sales per year.Eben Upton wrote: a monthly run rate of 500600ku

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
I know. Last month I toured an Amazon distibution facility, and within less than a minute of looking, I saw 2 Pi4s go down the conveyor belt! It never will stop amazing me how successful Raspberry Pi has been.

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
once i figured out how to change the swap file to 2gb, the 3B+ became instantly more useful to me. The 3B+ is a good unit. i have 24gb pi4b's and 12gb pi4b they get hot but they work!

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
What were you doing that you needed more than 1GB of swap?once i figured out how to change the swap file to 2gb, the 3B+ became instantly more useful to me. The 3B+ is a good unit
Pi3B+ is good, Pi4 is better except for that VC6 thing I can barely understand

This snippet from twitter:
So a bit of maths from that shows 12 month UK sales to be 629,231

That's 1.3% of all the Raspberry Pi units sold in the UK in the last twelve months!

Re: Graph & timeline of Pi Sales
Yes, and the graphs in this thread are all based on worldwide sales too.
I've not seen a breakdown of pi sales by country ?
