The Raspberry Pi now supports 512MB of RAM rather than what it was before, 256MB. Although it has been upgraded, it still costs the same as it always was which is around £22.
Anybody who already has placed an order will receive the upgraded board.
“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,”
Premier Farnell’s Element 14 is in Pencoed which manufactures the Raspberry Pi.
