Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is finally available

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is finally available

Six years after the release of the first Raspberry Pi Zero, the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W has finally arrived, which, compared to the previous Raspberry Pi Zero W (the version with wireless network support of Raspberry Pi Zero), offers greater computational power. within the same, very small, form factor.

Source: Raspberry Pi In fact, Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W uses the same Broadcom BCM2710A1 SoC that was in the first version of Raspberry Pi 3, but with the operating frequency reduced to 1GHz, accompanied by 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM. As for multi-threaded workloads, according to sysbench, the new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W provides five times more performance than the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

Here is the full specification list:

Broadcom BCM2710A1, quad-core 64-bit SoC (Arm Cortex-A53 @ 1GHz) 512MB LPDDR2 SDRAM 4GHz IEEE 802.11b / g / n wireless LAN, Bluetooth 4.2, BLE 1 USB 2.0 with OTG HAT-compatible 40 pin I / O header MicroSD slot Mini HDMI port Composite video output Camera connector CSI-2 264, MPEG-4 decode (1080p30); H.264 encode (1080p30) Support for OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0 At the same time as the launch of Zero 2 W, Raspberry Pi has also made available a new official USB power supply that resembles that of Raspberry PI 4, but has a micro USB connector. B, instead of USB-C, and delivers a maximum current of 2.5A.

Source: Raspberry Pi Starting today, the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is available in the UK, EU, US America, Canada and Hong Kong for the price of 15 dollars, while for the power supply it is necessary to pay an additional 8 dollars. Unfortunately, even the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is not immune to the current shortage of semiconductors; therefore, it is possible that not all orders will be able to be fulfilled by the end of the year, but production should increase in the course of 2022.
