The original Hudl didn't even get a software update to 4.4 KitKat, let alone Lollipop. The Hudl2 started off as KitKat and was upgraded to Lollipop.
Apparently, not all production moved the the 2837. Or at least, not immediately.
Your webpage still says it uses the A7 https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/ra ... 2-model-b/jamesh wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 3:37 pmApparently, not all production moved the the 2837. Or at least, not immediately.
I was referring to the original Pi 2 (with the BCM2836). The Pi 2 Rev 1.2 is essentially the Pi 3 but without the built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, and with the processor underclocked at 900MHz.bensimmo wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 6:13 amI know, I was just saying it was the one that came out in 2013, never did get one of them.
Topic went off ages ago, neither of them have 64 cores.
The Pi2 two has the same processor as the Pi3 at the moment, unless you can find an old one.
I have the old one.
How did your Oreo upgrade go? quite a few failures in the forums.
The reason it still says it uses the A7 is to avoid confusion with owners of the original Pi 2. I do think that they should include specs for both models.bensimmo wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 3:43 pmYour webpage still says it uses the A7 https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/ra ... 2-model-b/
(I just looked to see if it said both versions).
Is it still actively made, or only on demand from some buisiness to RS/Farnell.
Just wondering: what device tree file does the Pi 2 Rev 1.2 use (*.dtb)? Does it use the same one as the Pi 3, or the original Pi 2?W. H. Heydt wrote: ↑Fri Dec 07, 2018 5:16 pmI was under the impression that the decision to shift the Pi2B to the BCM2837 was in the interests of inventory reduction and cost savings by dropping the use of the BCM2836 altogether. I would imagine that any residual supplies of BCM2836 SoCs got used up (beats throwing them away if people will still buy the finished boards), but that should have ended quite a while ago. Now it should just be a matter of flushing the remaining boards out of inventory
Just to pre-empt a certain poster, let me be the first to say:Just posted a new forum topic on ‘anyone using the new x86 Raspian?’
