The Raspberry Pi 2 delivers 6 times the processing capacity of previous models. This second generation Raspberry Pi has an upgraded Broadcom BCM2836 processor, which is a powerful ARM Cortex-A7 based quad-core processor that runs at 900MHz. The board also features an increase in memory capacity to 1Gbyte.

Well, for a while; now you’re out of Pi 2’s!!
Looking forward to it. Such a fantastic team, those RasPi folks.
Just an amazing product.
Will the processor reference manual for this version be available?
Sounds like the perfect Pi to host my weewx (for the Davis Vantage Pro2 ISS), my ADS-B Ground Station, and the HF WSPR beacon, all on the same device.
