Double the memory on the Raspberry Pi

October 16, 2012 at 12:55 am Leave a comment

Some great news from the Raspberry Pi foundation and Newark / Element14 in my inbox today: my on-order backup Pi will have 512MB rather than the 256MB that my current model has. SWEET. It’s definitely the case that the performance of the system is limited by the memory, and doubling that is going to go a long way toward allowing more applications to work smoothly.

The official announcement is here. New Pi’s can be ordered from here. Definitely going to swap my current Pi out as “backup” and use the new one with the 384/128MB memory split.
