Raspberry Pi has served as the base for thousands of clever homebrew electronics and even some more grandiose projects. Now the foundation responsible for the ridiculously cheap line of microcomputers has released the Raspberry Pi 2 which is more than six times as fast as its predecessor while retaining the same $35 price tag.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the successor to its super cheap line of microcomputers on Monday, the Raspberry Pi 2, which will be able to run Windows 10. The updated Raspberry Pi 2 comes with a way more powerful quad-core processor. The developers claim that the new ARMv7 processor has a six-fold performance increase, though that number will vary depending on how you use it. It also holds twice as much RAM (1GB) on the Raspberry Pi compared to its predecessor. The device, which is on sale now, retails for just $35 — the same price as the Raspberry Pi B+.
