Blog #3: Raspberry Pi 2

Raspberry Pi 2 is the second version of the popular credit card form factor computer, hugely popular for teaching computer science in school.  The new version sells for the same price, $35 and features:

  • A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU (~6x performance)
  • 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory)
  • Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1

The second version has upgraded to an ARM7 core which can now run of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10. If I were Eben Upton, the CEO of Raspberry Pi, I will contact the following people:
