Raspberry Pi 3 is now out, exactly four years after the original 256MB Raspberry Pi Model B was launched 29 February 2012.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation, which is behind the tiny, affordable computer says it has shipped over eight million units, including three million units of Raspberry Pi 2, and called it the ‘all-time best-selling computer’ in the UK. The foundation now has sixty full-time employees.

Raspberry Pi 3 gets a new SoC from Broadcom, BCM2837, which has the same same basic architecture as its predecessors BCM2835 and BCM2836, ensuring that projects and tutorials which rely on the precise details of the Raspberry Pi hardware will continue to work.
Raspberry says the new processor has a 33 per cent increase in clock speed with various architectural enhancements.
Raspberry is not discontinuing earlier models, but says that they will build the older versions as long as there’s demand.
Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 Model B will continue to sell for $25 and $35 respectively. Model A+ will be the $20 entry-level Raspberry Pi.
