I try to buy some RPI2B computer and I found out that on Farnell (element 14) side they sell only new version V1.2 for a price of 38,83€.
In description is written "Previous versions of Raspberry Pi 2 Model B use the BCM2836 SoC, which contains a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor. The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.2 board uses BCM2837, which contains a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor.".
So I check also the RS side and they are selling only old version V1.1. for a 31,88€. It is quite a price difference.
My question is if anybody know if the old version (V1.1) will go out of production or will stay?
Did anybody know if there is a big difference between this two processors (A7 - A53). With that I mean if I compile program (Lazarus) in version V1.1 (A7) will it work on new version V1.2?
Thank you for help,
kind regards, Matija
