It's official. The new Raspberry Pi 3 will be stronger and be more connected than ever, with the same size and the same price. They have 4 years since the foundation Raspberry Pi submit the Original Raspberry. To celebrate, the foundation has just announced on its official blog the launch of the new Raspberry Pi 3, the expected update of the Raspberry Pi 2.
The new Raspberry Pi 3 has a processor quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU 1.2GHz and 64 - bit (almost ten times faster than 4 years ago launched by the company), but RAM remains 1GB. It also has integrated Wi-Fi connectivity support 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.1 connection , something that users have been asking for some time, since until now USB or wireless adapters are used directly via the Ethernet cable.
It will also be compatible with previous models, Raspberry Pi 1 and 2. And all while keeping the price of the previous model:$ 35 . Of course, it has other features and ports such as microSD slot, USB or Ethernet.
Among all these developments it will not be compatible with 4K resolution video, something the company has been explained as a bid to keep doing the same code-compatible video with previous models.
