All-New Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

  • The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is the second generation Raspberry Pi. It replaced the original Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ in February 2015. Compared to the Raspberry Pi 1 it has:
    • A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU
    • 1GB RAM

    Like the (Pi 1) Model B+, it also has:

    • 4 USB ports
    • 40 GPIO pins
    • Full HDMI port
    • Ethernet port
    • Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
    • Camera interface (CSI)
    • Display interface (DSI)
    • Micro SD card slot
    • VideoCore IV 3D graphics core

    Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10 (see the blog for more information).

    The Raspberry Pi 2 has an identical form factor to the previous (Pi 1) Model B+ and has complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1.

    We recommend the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B for use in schools: it offers more flexibility for learners than the leaner (Pi 1) Model A+, which is more useful for embedded projects and projects which require very low power.
