[liliputing] Raspberry Pi 3 to feature on-board WiFi, Bluetooth

A few weeks ago Swedish site SweClockers reported that a Raspberry Pi 3 was on the way. Now it looks like we have confirmation… courtesy of the FCC.

A listing for the Raspberry Pi 3 just showed up, and while there isn’t a description of new features, there are a few things we know for certain:

It’s called the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
It has the same basic design as earlier Raspberry Pi mini-computers.
One new feature is built-in support for WiFi and Bluetooth.
Up until recently, some Raspberry Pi single-board computers have had Ethernet jacks while others have not. But none have had on-board wireless support. If you wanted to connect to a wireless network or Bluetooth devices, you needed to attach a wireless adapter to one of the available USB ports.

Based on the FCC documents, it looks like the new Raspberry Pi 3 does support Bluetooth and WiFi, but it only seems to support 2.4 GHz networks, not 5 GHz. That suggests it’ll support 802.11n, but not the faster 802.11ac standard.

Judging by pictures posted to the FCC website, the Raspberry Pi 3 looks nearly identical to version 2. It has HDMI and Ethernet jacks, four USB ports, a microSD card reader, and a 40-pin connector.

There’s no word on how much the new Raspberry Pi 3 will cost, or if there are any changes to the processor, memory, or other specs. But the Raspberry Pi foundation does have a habit of keeping the base price for its flagship products at about $35.

I was going to build my four year old an htpc but I think this should cut it for the moment... 😜

And then water cool it. The GPU can be overclocked to handle 1080p@60 video.

This really should not be called the Raspberry Pi 3, more like the Pi 2 Model B+.

I think only an upgraded CPU/GPU or storage chipset could warrant it.

According to the article: "Raspberryry Pi 3 will also have a 1.2 GHz, 64-bit processor, making it the first Raspber Pi device to have a 64-bit chip"
I'm interested to hear what they putting in the Pi this time.

The Wifi and bluetooth is a nice addition.

Really? My SP3 can't handle 1080p60 video.

What? My SP2 handles 1080p60 just fine.

The hardware is like the same.


Thinking about getting one myself, as a cheap PLC.

Just wish the CPU was more powerful, and had USB 3.0. Would make for a nice and cheap NAS or Server. USB 2.0 kills the NAS idea.

Lag for me using Chrome. No idea why. SP2 is a bit better then SP3 because it does not throttle as hard.

The Pine64 does 4K so this is made to compete with the Pine. I'm holding off building an HTPC until this or the Pine64 releases because I want to future proof it.
