A Faster New Raspberry Pi 3 is Now Available

Raspberry Pi Foundation

March 14 is Pi Day (3/14), and what better way to celebrate than with a brand new Raspberry Pi micro-computer board?

THE RASPBERRY PI FOUNDATION has unveiled the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, its most powerful miniature PC yet.

Around 19 million Raspberry Pi units have been sold over the past six years, with the Raspberry Pi 3 accounting for around half of those. Well the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is an improvement over the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, its first 64-bit product launched two years ago.

For projects requiring faster networking speeds, the Model B+ delivers dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless connectivity and gigabit ethernet over USB 2.0, which supports up to 300Mbps (three times the speed of previous boards). The Pi Foundation says it may upgrade the Raspberry Pi 1A+, presumably to a model B, sometime soon as well. All of the wireless circuitry is housed under a metal shield that's been embossed with the Raspberry Pi Foundation's logo.

Lab tests show nearly a 25 percent performance improvement for 2.4 GHz bandwidth over the Model B. Bluetooth has also been updated to version 4.2 in place of 4.0. We're still looking at support for one HDMI connection, four USB 2.0 ports, as well as display and camera ports.

Pa. US House election is tight contest
Outside GOP groups - aware of the symbolism of losing such a red seat - poured in more than $10 million to bolster him up. Even with such a tight race there is no automatic recount because it is a congressional race and not a statewide race.

In a nod to FCC compliance, the radio circuitry is now covered by a metal shield, which allows the Pi team to have the entire device classified as a radio module.

Finally, improved power management should result in better sustained performance, with the CPU running at 1.4GHz below 70°C before dropping to 1.2GHz as things heat up.

The B+ does use more power than previous boards, but thanks to the improved power integrity of the Broadcom chip, it won't get throttled very often. The operating system and storage needs are taken care of by a microSD card pushed into the integrated slot.

The new board costs the same price as the old model, at just $35 (£25), despite the upgraded features and components. The video below has more on the release.
