Speculation on Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W for $ 15

An article on the Makezine website that has since been taken off the net revealed details about an allegedly planned new cheap Raspi, the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. It should therefore be equipped with a variant of the ARM SoC Broadcom BCM2837, which also includes the Raspberry Pi 3 drives.

That would be a big step forward compared to the previous Raspberry Pi Zero W with the BCM2835, which was introduced in 2012 and only has a single ARM11 / ARMv6 CPU core. The BCM2837, on the other hand, contains four ARM Cortex-A53, i.e. 64-bit ARMv8 cores.

According to the information from Makezine, the CPU cores of the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W should clock a little lower than the Raspi 3, namely only with 1 GHz. An LPDDR2 memory chip is directly connected to the BCM2837 or its silicon die BCM2710. Allegedly 512 Mbytes of RAM are provided.

At 15 US dollars, the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is said to be more expensive than its much weaker predecessor, the Raspberry Pi Zero W, which was introduced in 2017. Because the Raspberry Pi Foundation is currently struggling with delivery bottlenecks for semiconductor chips and other components, the prices of some other Raspi variants have also risen.
