Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ arrives with faster CPU and 5GHz WiFi

Moreover, the wired internet has been revamped, thanks to the Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0 bridge which speeds up the maximum throughput by three times.

RS Components has announced the availability of the latest Raspberry Pi computer board: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. Not only is the 3B+ sporting Bluetooth 4.2, but it also has increased support for dual-band Wi-Fi connections.

On Wednesday, the Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. And similar to the Pi 3 Model B, it costs $35 - while the previous model is now on sale for $5 less through some outlets. It was the first product from the organization to come with 64-bit processing and integrated wireless connectivity, making it a popular option for the homebrew community.

Compromise Seeks to Save Netanyahu's Coalition
Some analysts say Netanyahu favors early elections as a diversion to potential indictment on alleged corruption charges. Three of his former associates have signed state witness deals with police.


Towards the top edge of the board is the 40-pin header, which allows the Pi 3 B+ to interact with other electronic hardware. In the product shot you can see the wireless circuitry is installed beneath an embossed metal shield. These include the new processor's improved power integrity, packaging, and heat spreader, and internal clocking and voltage rule tuning.

Like most new Linux hacker boards, the B+ moves from 10/100Mbps to 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet.

Elsewhere there are improvements to power management and thermals for better sustained performance levels.

Spring Statement 2018: Plans to build more homes on track
Not really, according to Paul Johnson, director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies. However, it warned that this so-called dividend should not be viewed in isolation.


That said, the foundation says the Pi 3 Model B+ can sustain high performance for much longer periods than its predecessors.

Power-over-Ethernet support. Using a separately-acquired PoE HAT accessory, you can now provide power and networking to the Model B+ using a single cable.

By way of a quick recap, the Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized contraption that serves as a building block for functional computers - users can construct fully working PCs or machines that control their connected home, for example.

Sam Bradford Intends To Sign With This Team
Bradford signed with Minnesota in 2016 and missed most of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a torn meniscus. That tear of his ACL and other structural damage kept Bridgewater out almost the whole 2017 season as well.
