Raspberry Pi 3 Launched - 50% Faster, With Inbuilt Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 

Raspberry Pi, which has made a low cost tiny sized computer, is back with their most recent offering. They are presenting Raspberry Pi 3 which is the third version of their Popular Raspberry Pi flagship. It is priced at the meager amount of just $35, if one take a look at the value of this computer then the cost is same as that of Raspberry Pi 2 mini which launched a year ago. It takes after in looks with its successor Raspberry Pi 2 and even a large number of the features stay same however Raspberry Pi 3 includes the quite anticipated features i.e., Bluetooth 4.1 and integrated WiFi Network of 802.11n.

The additional features now make the gadget ready to go for wireless connections and let behind the requirement for an Ethernet port as the main connection for Internet access. Bluetooth connection implies that clients can now associate wireless keyboard or mouse to control the Pi 3 and communicate wirelessly with sensors and different devices.

Raspberry Pi 3 will be accessible to its users from today i.e., Monday 29th Feb from component 14 and RS parts. Organization additionally said that they will be utilizing the same 32-bit Raspbian userland which they have effectively used as a part of their past versions. After the examination, Company will consider moving to 64-bit mode.

The company likewise declares that their most recent version conveys 10 times better performance or 50-60% increase in contrast with their past models. A place for status LED is replaced by the chip antenna  and the status LED has now moved to one side by the space of Micro SD card. The quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex A-53 is the most powerful CPU ever fitted to a Pi, running at 1.2GHz out of the box. It can be overclocked further with a stable power supply and adequate cooling.

“The two main things that people do with their Pi are used it as a PC replacement or use it as an embedded computer,” Raspberry Pi Foundation co-founder Eben Upton told the BBC. “The Pi 3 is doubling down on both those things rather than going looking for new things to do.”

The following specifications are listed for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model:
