The Raspberry Pi foundation has announced an upgraded version of the Raspberry Pi on Pi Day, what a coincidence...
The updated specs are:
  • A 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU
  • Dual-band 802.11ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.2
  • Faster Ethernet (Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0)
  • Power-over-Ethernet support (with separate PoE HAT)
  • Improved PXE network and USB mass-storage booting
  • Improved thermal management
Look that that shiny heat spreader...

The RPi foundation provided some performance metrics for the new network interfaces.
Wired speeds will hit 315Mbps up/down and on 5GHz Wi-Fi you'll get 102Mbps up/down under ideal circumstances.
