Forum Thread: Introducing the Raspberry Pi 3

Hi everyone, this post is for those of you who don't know that the raspberry pi 3 is on sale.

for the same price as a raspberry pi 2 you can get a better one.
The new feature:

-A 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU (~10x the performance of Raspberry Pi 1)
-Integrated 802.11n wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1
-Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1 and 2

The 900MHz 32-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU complex has been replaced by a custom-hardened 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53. Combining a 33% increase in clock speed with various architectural enhancements, this provides a 50-60% increase in performance in 32-bit mode versus Raspberry Pi 2, or roughly a factor of ten over the original Raspberry Pi.

Have a nice day.

Nice share. I'm working on a raspberry pi project in my computer science class.

If these things keep advancing, we'll end up having a super computer in the palm of our hands.

I've been searching all over for one of these but I can't find any forsale in the USA

Thanks for sharing REDGENESIS. Great news.
