[EN] Raspberry Pi 3: the credit card-sized 1.2GHz PC that costs $35
Raspberry Pi foundation launches new model as it announces 8 million devices have been sold in four years, making it the UK’s all-time bestselling computer.
Monday 29 February 2016
The Raspberry Pi foundation has launched the latest generation of its flagship credit card-sized computer as it announced sales have topped 8m, making it the UK’s all-time bestselling computer.
The Raspberry Pi 3, released on Monday, costs $35 (£25), the same as its predecessor (although still seven times more than the ultra-stripped-down Raspberry Pi Zero, which was launched as a free cover gift with a magazine). In its small-form factor is a 1.2GHz quad-core ARM processor (a boost from the Pi 2’s 900MHz), as well as integrated Wi-Fi and bluetooth, a first for the series.
The Pi family has a strong fanbase worldwide. Its low cost, slim form and low power consumption make it useful for a variety of hobbyist purposes, from creating a simple media centre to a bootstrapped router or a dedicated retro games machine.
The machine has also become strongly identified with education initiatives, like the BBC Micro before it, thanks to the help of groups like Code Club, which use Raspberry Pi machines to teach programming in schools. In November 2015, the Raspberry Pi foundation acquired Code Club, “with the aim of putting a Code Club in every community in the UK and, ultimately, across the world”.
New Windows 10 IoT Core preview available for Raspberry Pi 3 board

This morning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced availability of their new board—the Raspberry Pi 3. We’re excited to have Windows 10 support the new board via a new Windows 10 IoT Core Insider Preview update available for download today. The new Raspberry Pi 3 board is available now in the Microsoft Store online.
Optimized for connected things and smaller devices with or without a display, Windows 10 IoT Core brings the power of Windows, including enterprise grade security and servicing, automatic updates through Windows Update when connected to the Internet and the rich Universal Windows Platform (UWP) APIs that give apps easy control over system management features.
Since we first announced Windows 10 support for Raspberry Pi last year, your feedback has been driving how we continue improving our platform enabling more and more Raspberry Pi capabilities on Windows 10 IoT Core. We’ve made it easier to connect your Windows 10 IoT Core device to the Internet by adding support for the official Raspberry Pi Wi-Fi dongle and other common Wi-Fi dongles. Also, we brought you full support for the TX/RX pins enabling easy access to the UART by simply calling GetDeviceSelector (“UART0”) method on the SerialDevice class. In the new Insider Preview build available today, we are enabling support for the new Raspberry Pi 3 board and we’re working to bring you more features in the coming weeks.
Commercialization & Customization With the popularity of the Raspberry Pi, many customers have asked about commercializing with the platform. We are working with element14 to provide customers with the option to choose Windows 10 IoT Core as part of their Raspberry Pi Customization Service. OEMs will now be able to build versions of the Raspberry Pi that meet their unique requirements, use the open source BSP that Microsoft has released and deploy with Windows 10 IoT Core. The interoperability, coupled with the power of the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite to drive meaningful action across devices, further extends the value that Microsoft delivers to our customers.
The new Raspberry Pi 3 is faster, more powerful and the first out of the box IoT ready Raspberry Pi. We’re thrilled to deliver the power of Windows 10 on the new board and your feedback continues to help us improve Windows 10 IoT Core. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll be able to make in the coming weeks.
Install the new Insider Preview update available today via Download or through the newly supported Raspberry Pi installer (NOOBS), start building with the Raspberry Pi 3 and tell us about your experience. We can’t wait to see what your make!
