Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B was officially announced yesterday, which is either the foundation's fourth or first birthday depending on how you view the 29th of February :-)

The most significant changes are:
  1. Integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN
  2. Integrated Bluetooth 4.1 Classic & Low Energy.
  3. 1.2Ghz 64-bit ARMv8
The CPU has moved from 32-bit to 64-bit but it will use a 32-bit Raspbian version while they investigate whether there is any value in moving to 64-bit mode.

It will require a 2.5A power supply.
