TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition: Official Press Release
Published by KermMartian on January 18, 2013 at 1:19:56 PM CST | Discuss this article (35)

We here at Cemetech have known about Texas Instruments' new calculator, the TI-84+CSE, for over two months now. On November 8, 2012, Cemetech member orac343 told us about a new calculator his school was testing, a color-screen TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. We soon learned it had a 320x240-pixel 16-bit color screen, the standard TI-84 Plus form factor and case, 3.5MB of user-accessible ROM, and 21KB of user-accessible RAM. We also discovered it has a rechargeable battery with recharging contacts on the sides, and TI told us more about the operating system. We worked hard documenting everything available about the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition in a new calculator information section on Cemetech. Just over a month ago, Texas Instruments gave us more official pictures and information on the TI-84+CSE, with a promise of a press release in mid-January.

We now have that press release in hand. It confirms a 2.8" 320x240 color LCD, the rechargeable battery, the OS, and the 3.5MB of Archive. It confirms that TI-BASIC and ASM will still be supported (though it does not yet mention the processor type). The availability is still listed as Spring 2013, although my sources have narrowed that down to late March/early April. I can also share that the device will be presented at TI's T3 2013 education conference in Philadelphia this March. Among other pedagogical details, the press release mentions that the new calculator is nearly keystroke-compatible with the TI-84+ and TI-84+SE, other than the new color features and larger homescreen, and that it will be accepted on the SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests.

Be sure to check out our documentation on the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, Texas Instruments' information page, and the official press release below. As you know, as soon as we get more publicly-available information on the TI-BASIC and ASM programming capabilities on the new calculator, we will be sharing it with you.
