New Raspberyy Pi Zero 2 W

There's a new Pi Zero with the same form factor.  Immediately I thought of using it with one of my MK3S.

You should ask Gina Häußge first to make sure it is compatible with Octoprint. Because the Zero 1 W was not.

It works

Just seen on Twitter that Gina confirms it works!  It should work with the MK3S although she recommends a separate PSU.

I expect we're going to see a lot of installs where it "works just fine" until you run into a power hungry RPi mid-print. Still, it was inevitable that an improved Zero was released. Glad to see it. Now to wait a couple of months to see if Microcenter offers them in-store for $5.

DVFS?

You could likely downclock CPU (lock on DVFS). This should do the trick.

I agree.  I am going to wait for a price drop and the pre-soldered pins.
