Hot off the presses, this is a big jump in speed and power for the Arduino community. No longer an 8bit Atmel at heart, there is a powerful ATSAM3X8E processor beating at the core of this Arduino. Compatible with 3.3v shields, and still programmed with the Arduino IDE, the user experience is the same as with the lessor models of the Arduino. A new addition to the Arduino feature set is a digital-to-analog converter. Not just one, but two!
