The Raspberry Pi is a minimal cost, Mastercard measured PC that attachments into a PC screen or TV, and utilizations a standard keyboard and mouse. It empowers individuals to investigate registering, and to figure out how to program in Scratch and Python etc.
On 29 February 2012, the first release of Raspberry Pi 1 was made. Raspberry Pi 1 was shipped with 256MB of RAM. There were more than 5 million Raspberry Pi devices were shipped. The introductory price of Raspberry Pi 1 was just $25 and it was named as “Revolutionary Computer of $25”.
The release of Raspberry Pi brings the world to the IoT and it was a great invention. At that time, Raspberry Pi has only support for Linux but after that release of Raspberry Pi 2 Model B come with the support of Windows 10 and Android. The price was $35 for Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.
Now Raspberry Pi 3 comes with additional 2 modules of WiFi and Bluetooth. Raspberry Pi Foundation is shipping just in $35. They didn’t raise the price of Raspberry Pi device.
The features of Raspberry Pi 3 includes:
- A 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU (~10x the performance of Raspberry Pi 1)
- Integrated 802.11n wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1
- Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1 and 2
Raspberry Pi 3 is fully compatible with Raspberry Pi 1 and Raspberry Pi 2. There are some changes has been made in Raspberry Pi 3. The 900MHz 32-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU complex has been replaced by a custom-hardened 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53. Combining a 33% increase in clock speed with various architectural enhancements, this provides a 50-60% increase in performance in 32-bit mode versus Raspberry Pi 2, or roughly a factor of ten over the original Raspberry Pi.
