Now get ready for the hottest micro-controller single board computer on the planet: The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the third generation Raspberry Pi. This powerful credit-card sized single board computer can be used for many applications and supersedes the original Raspberry Pi Model B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. While maintaining the popular board format,the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B brings you a more powerful processor, 10 times faster than the first generation Raspberry Pi.Additionally it features WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities to enhance the functionality and the ability to power more powerful devices over the USB ports.
Compared to the Raspberry Pi 2 it has?
- A 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU
- 802.11n Wireless LAN
