60 FPS on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B with Slackware ARM 14.2 - it works!


I finally found how to reach 60 FPS on my Raspberry Pi 3 Model B (RPi3B) with Slackware ARM 14.2 (SARM14.2)!

Here are the instructions:

Of course, if you first want to know how to install SARM14.2 on your RPi3B, here are the instructions:

Have fun and let's play video games on the RPi3B with SARM14.2

All Pi boards share the same GPU and I'm able to play MPEG4 1080p at 50/60fps - both online streams (DVB TS) and local files - on a Pi0 under Kodi 17.x by using this optimized FFMPEG:
