The Raspberry Pi 2 boosts the board’s specs to a quad core processor and 1GB of memory – with the new machine racking up several times the benchmark score of its predecessor, as well as being able to run Windows 10 and Ubuntu.
 
“[The improvements] gives us something like six times the processing power and takes Raspberry Pi to the level of performance that makes it genuinely like a PC,” said Upton, who is also CEO of Pi Trading, at the launch of the Pi 2 in London. “Pi 2 does broaden the addressable market and we’re hoping with this product we will start to have people buy them as the second PC in the house. Applications load faster, browsing the web is faster, all of the tools are much better.” About 4.5 million Raspberry Pis have been sold since the board’s release in 2012, and Upton expects to sell three million Pi 2 and B+ models this year. The new board will also be able to support Ubuntu and Windows for the first time, courtesy of the boards’ ARM v7 core, with a Snappy Ubuntu Core image available now. “We’ve been working with Microsoft for the past six months to enable Windows 10 on Rapsberry Pi. It runs, I’ve seen it running, it’s pretty cool,” said Upton. “This is Windows 10 intended for IoT applications and the intention here is to have a device which you can use to build IoT devices,” he said. “The intention is you can take a Windows 10 application that you can run on Surface, PC, a Windows phone and now Raspberry Pi as well.”
