The 64-bit processor on the Raspberry Pi 3 is twice as fast as the previously used 32-bit. If it’s speed you desire, the Pi 3 is 50 percent faster than its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi 2, and 10 times as fast as the original. Webpages load much more rapidly and program response has hastened, making the Raspberry Pi 3 experience feel much more like a modern machine than a $35 computer. The future-ready board features 40 GPIOs, four USB ports, 1GB of RAM, a camera port, and a display port, giving STEM students more power and efficiency than ever.

The Pi 3 is the first in the series of Raspberry Pi products that ships with a 64-bit processor and the first to come equipped with on-board Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing for immediate connectivity. It features the same Raspbian code base running on all previously existing Raspberry Pi platforms. Other upgrades include improved power management, a manual slide-in, slide-out microSD card port and the addition of a Wi-Fi/BLE antenna. The RAM stays the same as the 2 at 1GB, Ethernet is still 10/100 and the GPU is the same tried-and-true VideoCore IV.
