Raspberry Pi 3

By | 1 Mar 2016

Well the Raspberry Pi 3 went on sale today in Australia and I was lucky enough to pick one up.

Raspberry Pi 3 with BoxKey improvements over the Pi 2:

  • Broadcom BCM2837 chipset running at 1.2 GHz
  • 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 4.1 (Classic & Low Energy)
  • Dual core Videocore IV® Multimedia co-processor
  • microUSB connector for 2.5 A power supply

So why did I push to get one of these so quickly?  I think it will make a great multimedia player (the model B does fine) and with the built in Wifi more easily deployed.

I am currently imaging a new Micro SD card with the latest version of Raspbian (Jessie 2016-02-26) and will update with initial thoughts in the next day or two.
