What is OpenELEC?
Media center were one of the first projects to think for the Raspberry Pi and they have gone to become so popular. The Raspberry Pi Foundation has invested in their development to mass production, and they been tested in Raspberry for the performance. While the Raspberry Pi 1 and Raspberry Pi 2 both share the same Video Core IV GPU, which means that they both can easily work with High Resolution videos. The OpenELEC user interface is also quite a CPU intensive process and it was common for users of the original Raspberry Pi over clock there devices to coax performance. Raspberry Pi now has immense improvements made to the CPU and RAM, and means that Raspberry Pi 2 is clearly the stable base that you need to build your media center.
