Re: When can we expect the next version of Raspberry pi?

I can not find any evidence of that being the case, could you point to a definitive guide ??? Of course you can't find evidence. "Future" Pi does not exist. ;) I meant proff that an ARMv6 IMG would run natively on ARmv6 ? "The outcome is that from the viewpoint of the programmer, everything gets de...

Re: When can we expect the next version of Raspberry pi?

I am not stating panic, but could you actually take a Raspbian Wheezy SD Card and run it out-of-the-box on a ARMv7 Pi ? I do not think so !!! Yes, that is my point. A future Pi based on the newer Broadcom chip can use the exact same image as "old" Pi. I can not find any evidence of that being the c...

Re: When can we expect the next version of Raspberry pi?

So basically you are saying that the RPF should move to a new architecture and if there is no support for original PI, it does not matter, get over it ???? OMG! LETS PANIC! It actually doesn't work like that. The dual core Cortex-A9 chip from Broadcom uses the same VideoCore IV as the PI does (base...

Re: When can we expect the next version of Raspberry pi?

Having said that, I did a little reading and the next step would be a Cortex-A8 design with the same clock speed Its a bit more complicated than that. Its whether Broadcom has such a chip or not. From what I have seen on their www page, they do not. They do offer a dual core Cortex-A9 as used in Ro...

Re: When can we expect the next version of Raspberry pi?

The next step after that at Broadcom is Dual-Core 1.2GHz Cortex-A9, at which point it's as powerful as i.e. a Motorola Attix 4G - something that runs Gnome 3 flawlessly, and allows for better educational software, too - which is the point, isn't it?. The Raspberry Pi uses ARMv6 therefore out-of-the...

Re: When can we expect the next version of Raspberry pi?

I agree with mahjongg - the focus of the RasPi is to be an open, low-cost (standardized) educational platform, not to be the whizziest or most powerful media-player computer - there's plenty of "android on a stick" type computers if you're looking for the latter... To quote the Simpsons: Won't some...
