from the info i have gained, there is no antenna for the wifi.. so its a onboard thing (so would'nt be very powerful)
i would rather them start mass producing them raspberry zero's , now that would be better
Timely Damona, Pi3 officially launching tonight at 8pm.
I got one for 30 pounds.
Was actually looking for the Pi zero , but could not resist.
its official..there for sale now
I expect the wifi performance will be similar to using one of the small USB dongles. I have a Pi v3 on order and we expect that the next FPP image we create will support it.
Wifi in the old Pi was not good as it was on the USB device. Wifi in built moves it off the USB and gives it better throughput performance and less CPU usage for WiFi, even if its a short distance.
The Linux distributes did not want to support the Pi 1 & 2 as the arm chip was to old for their liking. So Pi 3 should get better support now i.e. More Linux Distributions.
I think that the new onboard WiFi does go through the WiFi controller.
The ethernet connection does.
I got my Pi 3 yesterday.
