Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
The long-awaited Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is finally here! Can you believe it has been 4 years since the model B?
This third generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is an excellent tool for hackers, makers and educators because of its small footprint, low power consumption, and low price. Use it to teach kids to code; put it in a robot for powerful processing capabilities; turn it in to a killer media center for your living room.
This new Pi comes packed with new exciting fillings such as a 64 bit architechture and integrated 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 and BLE on the board - no more bluetooth or WiFi dongles eating up your USB ports!
The processor is a quad-core 64-bit 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A7 CPU which is 50% faster than its predecessor. Although RAM is the same as it's predecessor, it is now faster at 900MHz. The same goes for its VideoCore IV graphics processor, which has jumped from 250MHZ to 400MHz. The board's footprint remains the same size as the Pi2, but with more exciting features and backwards compatibility. Order yours today!
