MINI PC The Raspberry Pi 2 has been unveiled, boasting double the amount of RAM at 1GB and an updated ARMv7 quad-core processor, which the firm says makes the device six times faster than the original.
The Pi 2 touts expanded GPIO pins and advanced power management and connectivity, making it possible to connect up to four USB devices, including powered devices such as hard drives.
At the launch event, Raspberry Pi was also keen to point out that it has been working with Microsoft to ensure that the device is supported by the new Windows 10 operating system as well as Ubuntu.
The mini PC will cost the same as the original, at $35 (£26). It has backwards-compatibility with all previous Raspberry Pi accessories and is said to be able to run "bigger and more powerful projects" owing to the upgraded internal specifications. µ
