Raspberry Pi 3 will get Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Raspberry Pi is an innovative, inexpensive and surprisingly powerful microcomputer, but the truth is that when it comes to connectivity, the gadget certainly had gaps. Fortunately, with the advent of Raspberry Pi 3 this will change.
Submitted to the Federal Communications Commission of the US documents describe upgraded version of Raspberry Pi, which was provided to the US regulator for certification. In previous versions of the mini computer, could add a Bluetooth or WiFi connection using an external USB stick, but it was associated with additional costs, increasing the size and use of valuable USB port.
The new Raspberry Pi Model B comes with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth functionality, which opens many new opportunities for potential applications of the device, including easier than ever for home multimedia system. In addition, in the new model we find upgraded processor that has 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex A53 at 1.2GHz.
“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.” Wrote the official Raspberry Pi blog.
Unfortunately, the amount of RAM remains the same 1GB, and this applies to the graphics chip, which is again 400 MHz VideoCore IV. As a result, streaming video content with higher quality will be a little difficult.
Perhaps the best news related to the updated version of the computer is its price – it is again only $35 usd, which is the same amount for which you can buy Pi 2. In other words, it again remains the cheapest option for a system that can drives a full version of Windows.http://gizbrain.com/2016/02/29/raspberry-pi-3-will-get-wi-fi-and-bluetooth/https://i2.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Raspberry-Pi-3-Model-B.jpg?fit=760%2C469https://i2.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Raspberry-Pi-3-Model-B.jpg?fit=190%2C150TECH NEWSBluetooth,computer,Raspberry Pi,Wi-FiRaspberry Pi is an innovative, inexpensive and surprisingly powerful microcomputer, but the truth is that when it comes to connectivity, the gadget certainly had gaps.
