New version of Raspberry Pi computer coming our way

A few months ago we talked about updated versions of the Raspberry Pi computers including the Model B+ and we said there would be a completely new version of this portable computer in the near future. Well, here it is.

The so-called Raspberry Pi 2 computer is the successor to the first generation and according to its maker is up to six times faster than the now older Model B+. This is possible thanks to the hardware inside – the Raspberry Pi 2 comes with a quad-core Broadcom BCM2836 ARM processor at 900 MHz, an integrated Broadcom VideoCore IV GPU at 250 MHz, 1 GB of LPDDR2 memory, a microSD card slot, a full-sized HDMI port, four USB ports, a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet port, a microUSB connector and more.

The Raspberry Pi is fully compatible with all modern operating systems including Linux, RISC OS and even the upcoming Windows 10. The device will sell for USD 35.
