The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the latest Raspberry Pi Foundation single board computer with a quad core 64 bit ARMv8 CPU operating at 1.2GHz. It is almost twice as fast as the outgoing Raspberry Pi 2 Model B in many benchmarks.
With the increased performance comes higher power consumption and heat which is why we have paired it with our exclusive heatsink set. This kit will reduce hot spot temperatures by up to 20C and increase the stability of the Raspberry Pi 3 under full CPU load.
The new board also has built-in support for wireless technologies like 2.4GHz 802.11N WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy. You no longer need to take up two USB ports and USB bandwidth so the performance as a NAS device increases. This is a welcomed addition that is bound to save many users the hassle of getting wireless setup.

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B will consume around 1A of current by itself. Secondary accessories can drive up current consumption to 2.5A. Do not drive 2.5A current for prolonged durations as it will shorten the lifetime of the board components.

It's a Raspberry Pi 3, in what appears to be the original packaging, with the addition of two heat sinks that have sticky tape adhered to the bottom of them. You do have to put them on yourself, but it's as simple as peeling of the plastic cover from the tape and attaching the heat sinks to the two largest chips on the Pi. This product was a good choice for me because it was the same price as the plain Pi 3 with the addition of the heat sinks.
A really good buy for 40 bucks. It's great for playing old school video games via emulation, and it's fast enough to play old capcom and snk arcade fighting games at full speed, as well as snes and ps1 games at full speed. And the best part about it is how portable it is, say you want to have a retro game night at your friends house, but your friend doesn't play video games as much as he used to so he doesn't have any consoles, you could just use this. It's small enough to fit in your pocket and the actual game controllers are bigger than this thing.
I love using these Raspberry Pi's in small projects. Very affordable and easy to setup for anyone with a little bit of LINUX experience. The heatsinks were loose and just tossed into the Raspberry Pi box as an afterthought. Doing this could have damaged the Raspberry Pi board. The heatsinks, at a minimum should have been contained in a small plastic bag to prevent them from shifting around inside the box.
