Raspberry Pi Foundation celebrate its 4th birthday by gifting Raspberry Pi 3 to this techno society. Yeah micro-computing fan, a new, powerful latest Raspberry Pi 3 Model B in city. Third major version after introducing Raspberry Pi Zero just at $5 and month after(February last year) its second version Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3 called as successor of these two most successful version.
What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a highly qualitative manufactured simple computer(Printed Circuit Board) that looks and feel very basic, but could be initiative part or builder for a numerous of geeky project. Tiny appearance just like credit card with its low-cost appeal, it has become the most demanded computer yet where more than 8 million unit already sold. Due to Raspberry Pi 3 Model B built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity it may be more popular than the previous version.
The new version of the Pi supports 802.11n Wi-Fi (2.4GHz only) and Bluetooth 4.1, which helps its free four USB port for other peripherals. Along with the new version Raspberry Pi 3 has jumped from 32-bit processor, 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex A7, to a faster 64-bit processor, quad-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A53 CPU which expected of 50% faster performance than the previous one with architectural improvements and increase in clock speeds.
The $35 Microcomputer (Shop Now) all-new and powerful version of Raspberry Pi 3 brings a host of new hardware that makes it a much more powerful computer. Raspberry Pi 3 Model B will worked with Microsoft which ensure full compatibility between the new Pi 3 board and Windows 10 IoT. Comparing its price the specification are beyond the expectation.
What’s new on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B? :
- 2GHz Quad-Core Broadcom BCM2387 ARM Cortex-A53 processor
- Graphics upgrade from 250MHz to 400MHz Dual Core Video Core IV GPU
- 11n Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz)
- Bluetooth 4.1 (Bluetooth Classic and LE)
- Support 1080p video at 60fps using the H.264 format, up from 30fps
- 1GB RAM (same as the previous version)
- Micro SD Card Slot for Operating System (May Linux OS or Win 10 IoT)
- Ethernet connectivity (supports speed at 100Mbps)
- Requires only 2.5A input power
- Video Output: HDMI (rev 1.3 & 1.4, Composite RCA (PAL and NTSC)
- Audio Output: 3.5mm jack, HDMI, USB 4 x USB 2.0
After the Pi 3, Raspberry Pi Foundation ensured that it will also introduce a Raspberry Pi BCM2837-based Compute Module 3, an even smaller board designed for industrial applications, in the next few months. The Compute Module won’t include any Wi-Fi connectivity, but will have the same 1.2GHz Cortex A53 processor and 1GB RAM as the Raspberry Pi 3.
For Raspberry Pi 3, Broadcom have supported us with a new SoC, BCM2837. This retains the same basic architecture as its predecessors BCM2835 and BCM2836, so all those projects and tutorials which rely on the precise details of the Raspberry Pi hardware will continue to work. 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.
