Raspberry Pi 2 unveiled with faster processor and more memory

Posted by juni on February 2, 2015

The Raspberry Pi 2 makes two major changes to the previous version, while leaving other components unchanged:

  •     The CPU (central processing unit) is now quad-core rather than single-core. That means it can be programmed to use more of its cores to offer extra computing power, or made to use fewer to help save power consumption - useful if running as part of a battery-powered contraption. In addition, the Cortex A7 processor now runs at 800MHz rather than 700MHz
  •     The board now features one gigabyte of RAM (random access) memory, double the amount that was previously included
