Memory cards for Raspberry Pi
For installation of Raspberry Pi OS with desktop and recommended software via NOOBS the minimum required card size is 16GB. For the image installation of Raspberry Pi OS with desktop and recommended software, the minimum card size is 8GB. For Raspberry Pi OS Lite image installations we recommend a minimum of 4GB. Some distributions, for example LibreELEC and Arch, can run on much smaller cards. If you plan to use SDXC and microSDXC cards - please read this article for details. Because of a constraint in versions of SoC's used in the Raspberry Pi Zero, 1 and 2, the SD card partition size limit is 256GB. From the Raspberry Pi 3 onwards this limitation does not apply. Recommended speed class is Class 10 or higher. The original Raspberry Pi Model A and Raspberry Pi Model B require full-size SD cards. From the Model B+ (2014) onwards, a micro SD card is required. However you can use microSD card for all Raspberry Pi models, with an microSD to SD adapter.
