Important: If this is your first Pi or you are buying it as a gift please check this page.


There are two giant upgrades in the Pi 3.  The first is a next generation Quad Core Broadcom BCM2837 64-bit ARMv8 processor, making the processor speed increase from 900 MHz on the Pi 2 to up to 1.2GHz on the Pi 3.

The second giant upgrade (and this is the one we’re personally most excited about) is the addition of a BCM43143 WiFi chip BUILT-IN to your Raspberry Pi.  No more pesky WiFi adapters – this Pi is WiFi ready.  There’s also Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on board making the Pi an excellent IoT solution (BLE support is still in the works, software-wise)

Lastly, there’s an upgraded switched power source that goes up to 2.5 Amps instead of just 2 Amps – allowing your Pi to power even more powerful devices over USB ports.

The best part about all this is that the Pi 3 keeps the same shape, connectors, and mounting holes as the Pi 2.  The only difference is a slight change in where the LEDs are.  99% of cases and accessories will still be fully compatible with the Pi 3, Pi 2, and Pi B + – though if you have a case with a metal top there might be some WiFi chip difficulties.

Please note: Some boards are made in the UK, some in China. WE DO NOT KNOW IN ADVANCE WHICH ONES YOU MAY RECEIVE!
