Features and innovations of the Raspberry Pi 3
Celebrating the fourth anniversary in February 2016, the Raspberry Pi 3 is announced to be more powerful and promising than ever. But the best part is the price is still affordable at $ 35 (we’ll see how it has changed).

According to their data, it has a yield 10 times higher than the original Raspberry Pi. And also 50% more than the Raspberry Pi 2, the previous model. The increase in these numbers means a lot and you can experience the performance upgrade only while working on it.
Raspberry Pi 3 finally comes with integrated Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B fulfils the dream of many users who have been longing for this feature for years. That is for a direct integration of Wifi and Bluetooth connectiviy directly into the motherboard. Until now we had to use a USB wireless adapter or directly, use cable to Ethernet port.
Well it’s all over, the Raspberry Pi 3 has Bluetooth 4.1 (low energy consumption) and integrated 802.11n WiFi, without any additional accessories. Despite these changes, they have managed to maintain the same size and shape as we have seen in previous generations of Raspberry Pi. The only change is in the position of some LEDs to make room for the antenna.
