Raspberry Pi Model B gets double as much RAM for the same price

Posted on Tuesday, October 16 2012 @ 17:17:59 CEST by


Raspberry Pi announced it has upgraded the RAM of the Model B from 256MB to 512MB. This will enable the ARM-based computer to run multiple large applications simultaneously, as well as make it more suitable for embedded applications that use Java. Best of all, the price of the system remains at $35!
One of the most common suggestions we’ve heard since launch is that we should produce a more expensive “Model C” version of Raspberry Pi with extra RAM. This would be useful for people who want to use the Pi as a general-purpose computer, with multiple large applications running concurrently, and would enable some interesting embedded use cases (particularly using Java) which are slightly too heavyweight to fit comfortably in 256MB.

The downside of this suggestion for us is that we’re very attached to $35 as our highest price point. With this in mind, we’re pleased to announce that from today all Model B Raspberry Pis will ship with 512MB of RAM as standard. If you have an outstanding order with either distributor, you will receive the upgraded device in place of the 256MB version you ordered. Units should start arriving in customers’ hands today, and we will be making a firmware upgrade available in the next couple of days to enable access to the additional memory.
