Raspberry Pi 2, the latest in a line of inexpensive card-sized mini computers, was announced Monday morning.
The device is increasingly used and geared for education, DIY, prototyping and other computer-aided applications and is commonly used among Internet of Things developers.
American DIY project enthusiasts woke to the news after the Raspberry Pi foundation announced it in London on Monday.
It features a 900MHz Broadcom ARMv7 Quad Core system on a chip, making it an estimated six-times more powerful than previous Pi models B and B+.
In addition to it maintaining the same price ($35), Eben Upton, founding CEO of Raspberry Pi Foundation also announced that Microsoft will release a version of Windows 10 that will be compatible with Raspberry Pi 2, and will be available for free through the Windows Developer Program.
