Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ launched with improved performance

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

While offering improved thermal management compared to previous Raspberry Pi incarnations, the board also retains numerous same features and capabilities of previous-generation boards such as its small mechanical footprint of 85 x 56mm, making it suitable for the current official Raspberry Pi case, as well as many other third-party enclosures available on the market today.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

The new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ comes with improvements in speed across the board, as the company promises to deliver "more processing and faster communications".

"The new product is built around BCM2837B0, an updated version of the 64-bit Broadcom application processor used in Raspberry Pi 3B", it said. The Foundation says that the addition of a heat spreader and power integrity tweaks allows for a 200 MHz increase in clock frequency, while also catering for improved accuracy in temperature monitoring and control.

The new board has a slightly faster 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, Bluetooth 4.2 (an upgrade from 4.1), and dual-band Wi-Fi.

If you prefer wired to wireless, there's more good news.

Otherwise, the new Pi board is identical to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Raspberry Pi 2, featuring four USB 2.0 ports, a 40-pin GPIO header, one full-size HDMI port, display and camera ports, and four-pole stereo output and composite video ports. The B achieves throughput of 95.5Mb/s, but the B+ pushes that up to 315Mb/s.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is also supported for the first time, with the Raspberry Pi Foundation set to launch its own dedicated PoE HAT later this year. Further throttling happens beyond 80 degrees, but it's very unlikely you'll ever reach such high temperatures. The price remains the same too, meaning it'll cost $35/£30 at the usual suppliers. There are no plans to discount older models or cease production until there's a clear sign demand is drying up.

RS Components (RS), the global distributor for engineers, today announced availability of the latest Raspberry Pi computer board: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

The B+ is already available to buy, with online retailers worldwide starting to receive stock.
