The Raspberry Pi 2 – Model B – ARMv7 with 1G RAM is here! Get one and check out our comprehensive guide, benchmarks and performance improvements.

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.

  • Broadcom BCM2836 SoC
  • Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7
  • 900 MHz
  • Dual Core VideoCore IV® Multimedia Co-Processor
  • Provides Open GL ES 2.0, hardware-accelerated OpenVG, and 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode
  • Capable of 1Gpixel/s, 1.5Gtexel/s or 24GFLOPs with texture filtering and DMA infrastructure
  • 1GB LPDDR2
  • Boots from Micro SD card, running a version of the Linux operating system 85 x 56 x 17mm
  • Micro USB socket 5V, 2A

  1. Ahh!
    So THAT’S the reason for the ’embrace of death’ on adafruit.com today!
    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.

  2. Will the processor reference manual for this version be available?

  3. 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.
