This is the Raspberry Pi 3 (Model B) single board computer.
So what's new?
- Onboard Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1
- 33% Faster CPU Clock Rate
- 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 processor
- Video core clocked at nearly 2x speed of RPi2
- 3D GFX processor 50Mhz faster
The RPi3 retains the same GPIO and board layout as the RPi2 meaning that it's compatible with most add on 'Hat' boards. The RPi3 will probably fit in older cases, but because of a few positional changes, the older cases may be less than ideal. Watch out for cases made of metal - the metal could end up interfering with the WiFi / Bluetooth radio transmissions.
It's important that you use the newest version of the NOOBS operating system (1.8.0) if you want to benefit from faster operation and WiFi / Bluetooth.
