Looking to buy the Raspberry Pi 3? It's over here.

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.

What's changed from the older Raspberry Pi Model B+?

  • 1GB of RAM
  • A new Broadcom BCM2836 900MHz quad-core system-on-chip (SoC) with performance 6x that of the Model B+.

Things that are the same as the Rasberry Pi Model B+

  • The same form factor as the model B+ (cases and addon boards will still fit).
  • The same full size HDMI
  • The same 10/100 Ethernet
  • The same CSI camera port and DSI display ports
  • The same micro USB power supply

Specifications

  • Broadcom BCM2836 ARMv7 Quad Core Processor powered Single Board
  • Computer running at 900MHz
  • 1GB RAM
  • 40pin extended GPIO
  • 4 x USB ports
  • 4 pole Stereo output and Composite video port
  • Full size HDMI
  • CSI camera port for connecting the Raspberry Pi camera
  • DSI display port for connecting the Raspberry Pi touch screen display
  • Micro SD port for loading your operating system and storing data


Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Features

  • Broadcom BCM2836 ARMv7 Quad Core Processor powered Single Board Computer running at 900MHz (6x Faster)
  • Double the RAM (Memory) - 1GB RAM so you can now run bigger and more powerful applications
  • Identical board layout and footprint as the Model B+, so all cases and 3rd party addon boards designed for the Model B+ will be fully compatible.
  • Fully HAT compatible
  • 40pin extended GPIO to enhance your "real world" projects. GPIO is 100% compatible with the Model B+ and A+ boards. First 26 pins are identical to the Model A and Model B boards to provide full backward compatibility across all boards.
  • Connect a Raspberry Pi camera and touch screen display (each sold separately)
  • Stream and watch Hi-definition video output at 1080P
  • Micro SD slot for storing information and loading your operating systems.
  • Advanced power management: You can now provide up to 1.2 Amp to the USB ports – enabling you to connect more power hungry USB devices directly to the Raspberry PI. (This feature requires a 2Amp micro USB Power Supply)
  • 10/100 Ethernet Port to quickly connect the Raspberry Pi to the Internet
  • Combined 4-pole jack for connecting your stereo audio out and composite video out

Who wants pi? The Raspberry Pi has made quite a splash since it was first announced. The credit-card sized computer is capable of many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. It can run several flavours of Linux and is being used to teach kids all over the world how to program... Oh yeah, and it does all that for under $50 (yes, this description doesn't really apply to New Zealand dollars).
