It took them a good while but a new version of raspberry pi is now available
CPU is about 1.5x to 2x faster in most benchmarks than previous gen
2x USB 3.0 ports
2x micro-hdmi ports for up to 2x 4K monitors
$35 to run anything browser based in two monitors is not bad. The 2x USB 3.0 ports will help those who want to run a NAS without adding any expansion boards. A better CPU makes everything slightly faster.
I own one old first gen Raspberry PI B that I use as a WIFI Repeater and may get this new one as a HTPC (first gen one was barely able to playback 720p)
On all previous RaspberryPi models, the Ethernet and USB ports shared the same data bus. They separated them on this revision. So now if I want to host a website off of my Pi, on my 1G fiber network, with a USB attached HDD, I can! Don’t tell me it’s a bad idea, because I’m already streaming all my cat videos to the world
Nobody ever seems to bring up the lack of SATA, a deal breaker for me. I know the Raspberries never do SATA, but I am happy with my BananaPi that does have SATA. (Am I old-fashioned, or misguided in wanting SATA?)
