Yes I know I’m a big fan of SBC’s (Single Board Computers) 🙂 so this announcement makes my Pi-day even better.
Today (Pi-day) the Raspberry Pi foundation has released an update model of the Raspberry Pi 3.
The main upgraded features are:
- Higher CPU frequency
- Dual band 802.11ac WiFi
- ~Gigabit ethernet (see downsides)
- Still 1GB of memory 🙁
- USB2 ports
- Requires more power
- Not fully 1Gb bandwidth (its around 300+ Mb, so it’s still better that the previous model)
The best thing is, it still cost ~$35
