The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the third generation Raspberry Pi with a 64-bit 1.2GHz quad-core processor,1GB of RAM, WiFi (b/g/n), and Bluetooth 4.1.

Compared with the Raspberry Pi 2 the CPU is running at a 33% faster clock rate (1.2GHz vs 0.9GHz) the more modern core also means a more efficient instruction set, especially when performing operations on 64-bit values.

Video and 3D performance has also seen a bump with the VideoCore being clocked at 400MHz for video processing (up from 250MHz) and the 3D graphics processor running at 300MHz (up from 250MHz).

In general use you can expect the Raspberry Pi 3 to perform around 50% quicker than the Raspberry Pi 2 running the same software.

GPIO and layout
The GPIO header and layout remains the same as before so all of your existing HATs and add-on boards will work fine with the Raspberry Pi 3.

Some cases will not be ideal:

the indicator LEDs have moved (to accommodate the Wireless LAN antenna)
the microSD slot is no longer spring-loaded meaning a little more access space is required
the processor benefits from a little more venting for heat management
some of the smaller components on the board have moved
it's likely that cases made from metal will cause signal issues with the Wireless LAN and Bluetooth.
