As expected, the Raspberry Pi foundation has launched a new version of their low-cost single-board computer. The new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is a $35 computer with a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core, 64-bit processor, built-in 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1, and a design that makes it fully compatible with accessories and software designed for older Raspberry Pi devices.
Raspberry Pi’s third-generation computer features a Broadcom BCM2837 processor that the foundation says offers a performance improvement of up to 60 percent over the Raspberry Pi 2. The Raspberry Pi 3 is said to be about 10 times faster than the first Raspberry Pi computer.
The Raspberry Pi 3 seems like a nice $35 computer for using to play game console emulators, doing light office work like word processing, and learning how to make programs with Python, and other programming languages. I like that it now has built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a faster 64 bit Processor.
I may get the Raspberry Pi 3 if it can run a tabbed web browser like Firefox at a fast speed.
