Anyone else seen the new Raspberry Pi 2 yet?
It boasts a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU (~6x performance) and 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory).
"Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10."
This may mean that full blown ARC Windows may run on the credit card sized Pi which can easily be embedded in a robot. As good as the mobile version is and may become there can be no substitute for the desktop in many cases.
The specs are below the minimum stated for ARC on the site but it may just about work, I know I've run ARC (albeit an older version) on a lesser spec machine before so it could work out well.
If not, at least it's an improved spec for any SDK applications (and whatever else you use the Pi for).
If I get around to getting one I'll give ARC (and Windows 10) a try.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!
It is funny, I was actually planning on buying a Rasberry Pi kit this weekend to replace an aging web server with something that uses less power. Now I guess I'll wait a few weeks for the new one to really be available as part of starter kits.
(Ok depends of the size of the robot)
but I think even if the win10 for Raspberry is not a win RT version,
It's not sure that Raspberry pi 2 have enough power to run ARC, furthermore with 1go of ram.
ARC run on my Asus T100 (my main pc actually) with the same hardware than those cheapest tablet, but it's the minimum for me.
The original Pi surprised me with the power it has, I wouldn't rule out video processing to be honest but the proof is in the pudding.
I'll probably be ordering one soon but have more important things to waste my money on
Shure, for 35$ It would be a good news if not,
and I hope I'm wrong
"This is Windows 10 intended for IoT applications and the intention here is to have a device which you can use to build IoT devices," he said.
"The intention is you can take a Windows 10 application that you can run on Surface, PC, a Windows phone and now Raspberry Pi as well."
