Jam today: Raspberry Pi Ram doubled

All boards now ship with 512MB

Remote control for virtualized desktops

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has upgraded its credit card-sized computer: it now sports 512MB of memory rather than 256MB, but still costs $35 (£22).

Foundation founder Eben Upton promised that anyone who has an outstanding 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,” he pledged.

That may come as small consolation to the many would-be Pi owner still awaiting kit from RS Components - one of the Foundation’s two board supply partners; the other is Premier Farnell’s Element 14 - after placing orders with the company as early as June. Folk who ordered kit more recently have received their Pis.

RS has yet to respond to out request for a clarification of the order backlog situation. If you have an outstanding order, perhaps cancelling it and re-ordering would be the sensible way forward. ®
