Quad-core 64-bit Pi 3 is official with WiFi, BT, and $35 price
Raspberry Pi Trading launched a $35 Raspberry Pi 3 SBC with a quad-core, 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 Broadcom SoC plus WiFi and Bluetooth.
In the course of a year, the Raspberry Pi has moved from one of the more retro community-backed SBCs on the market to one of the most cutting edge. A few days after the Raspberry Pi 3 story leaked online, the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Raspberry Pi Trading, and Element14 formally launched the shiny new 64-bit, wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. The newly 64-bit hacker boards sells for the same price as the $35 Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, which delivered an even larger performance boost compared to the previous version when it launched with a quad-core, 900MHz Cortex-A7 SoC a year ago.
