Raspberry Pi 3 announced for $35


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 The 900MHz 32-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU complex has been replaced by a custom-hardened 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53.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.




  • 1.2GHz Quad-Core Broadcom BCM2387 ARM Cortex-A53 processor, Dual Core VideoCore IV GPU
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1 (Bluetooth Classic and LE)
