Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+: A closer look at the newest board

But this is still over three times faster than the 10/100 Mbps speeds provided by the previous Raspberry Pi board computers.

In honor of Pi Day, many stores are offering discounts on Raspberry Pi products, so be sure to look around.

THE RASPBERRY PI FOUNDATION has unveiled the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, its most powerful miniature PC yet. The device, which is available for $35, comes with a 1.4-GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU and delivers dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. In testing-listed at the bottom of the review-the boost to processing power was evident across the board-from better performance in benchmarks to the faster data transfer when copying from USB.

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, thanks to its new Cyprus chip, supports dual-band wireless local-area networks (LAN) at 2.4GHz and 5GHz, gigabit ethernet over USB 2.0 which supports speeds up to 300Mbps, and Bluetooth 4.2 and Bluetooth Low Enegery.

Browns to consider pursuing Nate Solder, still waiting on Joe Thomas
With the legal tampering underway, I'd certainly expect Solder be connected to a numerous amount of teams, including the Texans. The report adds Thomas' decision will not come on Tuesday and the Browns still don't have any idea about his status.

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.

If you prefer wired to wireless, there's more good news. This ebook explores the board's new features, measures its performance against earlier models, and includes an interview with Pi co-creator Eben Upton, who shares his thoughts on the product's evolution and plans for the future. The B achieves throughput of 95.5Mb/s, but the B+ pushes that up to 315Mb/s. The chip, which runs at 1.4GHz, throttles down to 1.2GHz if the temperatures exceed 70 degrees Celsius.

Overall, the new Pi is extremely similar to its predecessor, especially when it comes to plugs and form factor - which means it should work just fine with existing Pi cases and accessories. It throttles down further beyond 80 degrees (an unlikely event), notes PCMag.

The Pi Foundation will continue to sell the previous Pi 3 model, the Model B, for $35 as well because certain industrial customers still require it. However, it's pretty clear the Pi 3 Model B+ will become the most popular choice very quickly. So no matter where you live, chances are you'll be able to get one pretty quickly such is the maturity of the supply chain today.
