Which image should I download?
We offer two images:
arm64 for newer Pi models with more then 2 GB of RAM as the
hardware will benefit from CPU and memory pressure optimisations.
This will be our focus for future development.
armhf has been the traditional target for Raspbian, and works best on
low RAM hardware like the Pi 2 and 3. Choose this one if you need to maximize
compatibility with software designed for Raspberry Pi OS.
If your Raspberry Pi is an earlier model, make sure it is compatible.
Please note the schedule for new images are typically are behind the desktop releases of Ubuntu MATE.
