Powerful processor and more memory offers Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, the new version of Raspberry Pi.

According to a BBC report, the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is about six times more powerful than the previous version of the computer (Model B +). However, it will probably need this power, as it faces competition from other similar machines, such as the Arduino, Intel Galileo, Gizmo 2, BeagleBone Black and Hummingboard.

The main differences with the previous version are as follows: the CPU is now quad core rather than single core, allowing either more power or less power consumption (depending on requirements). Also, the Cortex A7 processor "runs" now at 800MHz instead of 700MHz, while there is a GB RAM.

In the same spirit as its predecessors, its owners will need to "add" their own keyboard, a MicroSD card that contains operating system and screen.

As the creator, Embend Appeal, told the BBC, it is now a "real" PC - a computer that can do most of what it would do with a regular PC, like surfing the Internet, seeing videos , to play games, but also to learn programming: the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B bring with him the necessary "tools" that young children need to make their first steps in the programming world. Otherwise, Acton points out, the rest have remained the same.

The computer can run a variety of Linux-based systems, but its creators have promised to be able to support its next operating system Microsoft. The cost is only 35 dollars.
