Pi Harder.
A Beast on a Budget.
Overclocked BCM2711 ARM v8 processor, up to 2.28GHz
RISC OS 5.28 and 2.5GB of software as standard, with optional software worth more than £600
Up to 8GB of fast LPDDR4-3200 memory
Super-fast storage with up to 256GB SSD
Fast. Sleek. Expandable.
As well as being a RISC OS workhorse, the Pi Harder can control a range of additional peripherals using both USB and GPIO. No longer relying on 26bit podules for expansion, the Pi Hard can make use of USB drives using SCSIFS, and a whole range of connected peripherals. Expansion has never been easier.
Let it fly.
Pi Harder features high-performance DDR4 memory, which combined with the state of the art ARM CPU, all adds up to faster processing. You can start with more memory — up to 8GB — capable of more than you can possibly imagine in RISC OS.
Apps and files in abundance.
With solid state storage, on a purpose built, industry-standard 2.5in SSD, the Pi Harder can store all of your necessary apps, in the knowledge that the drive was designed and intended for non-volatile storage. Expansion is easy - simply replace the SSD with one with more capacity.
Temperature Control
Active and passive cooling.
The Pi Harder comes complete with an adjustable Ice Cooler heatsink and fan attached to all of the components that produce the most heat. When utilised with CPU throttling when idle, the system remains remarkably cool in use. You may not even need the fan, but it’s there if you do.
Power to the desktop.
Utilising the flexibility and speed of RISC OS, combined with the processing power and robust storage, the Pi Harder helps you become a more efficient RISC OS user. Not to mention 4k resolutions for extreme productivity.

Operating Systems
Familiar Linux
Due to the nature of the PiHarder set up, we have created an option to have a familiar looking version of Linux installed on the hard drive. The custom version of Linux can shine with the look and feel of your second (or third!) favourite Operating System, just so that you feel at home. If you have a preference for fruity operating systems, or one of a number of fenestrated appearances, then this pre-installed Linux could be right up your street. And it’s easy to change your mind - simply choose an new theme from the theme manager. What’s more, it’s even based on, and derived from the official Raspberry Pi OS. It comes with a full range of programs and applications installed, including web browsers, multimedia players, programming IDEs, office applications, and even system tools - all with familiar window furniture and icons, so that you can feel comfortable straight away. It can even run some Windows and DOS applications out of the box! Not only that, but it’s our easiest version of EDOS to date, whilst maintaining that shared space with RISC OS - and only available on the PiHarder.
