The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is the second generation Raspberry Pi. It replaced the original Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ i. Compared to the Raspberry Pi 1 it has:
900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU
1GB RAM
Like the (Pi 1) Model B+, it also has:
4 USB ports
40 GPIO pins
Full HDMI port
Ethernet port
Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
Camera interface (CSI)
Display interface (DSI)
Micro SD card slot
VideoCore IV 3D graphics core

In Detail

The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is built around the ARMv7 processor, a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU enabling the Raspberry Pi to run a vast range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10. The upgrade of processor in this platform, from BCM2835 (single core ARMv6) to BCM2836 (quad core ARMv7), means 2X increase in performance. The board also comes with a full gigabyte of RAM, which will greatly improve games and web-browser performance.

The board is powered through a USB Micro power supply. The power supply requires to provide at least 700mA at 5V. The Raspberry Pi 2 has an identical form factor to the previous (Pi 1) Model B+ and has complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1.

BOARD, Raspberry Pi 3, Model B

In Brief

The Raspberry Pi 3 is the third generation Raspberry Pi model. It replaces the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. Compared to the Raspberry Pi 2 it has the following upgrades:
1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU
802.11n Wireless LAN
Bluetooth 4.1
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
1GB RAM
4 USB ports
40 GPIO pins
Full HDMI port
Ethernet port
Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
Camera interface (CSI)
Display interface (DSI)
Micro SD card slot (now push-pull rather than push-push)
VideoCore IV 3D graphics core

In Detail

The Raspberry Pi 3 is powered by a USB Micro power supply (like most standard mobile phone chargers). A good-quality power supply that provide at least 2A at 5V are recommended for the Model 3B, or 700mA at 5V for the earlier, lower powered models. Low current (~700mA) power supplies will work for basic usage, but are likely to cause the Pi to reboot if it draws too much power. Any standard USB keyboard and mouse will work with your Raspberry Pi. For display, any HDMI/DVI monitor and any TV should work as a display for the Pi. For best results, use one with HDMI input, but other connections are available for older devices. For Memory allocation, it is recommended 8GB class 4 SD card. An Ethernet cable is used to connect your Pi to a local network and the internet. Alternatively, users can connect to a wireless network using a USB wireless dongle, which will require configuration.
