Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Launched: Offers More Power, Faster Networking

The latest Model B+ may be purchased from the Raspberry Pi Foundation for $35. 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 Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+'s Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0 which offers 300 MBPS speed. The Foundation claims the Model B+ is capable of "roughly three times the wired and wireless network throughput" of its predecessor. More information on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ board and ordering information is available at www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-3-model-b+, and more information on Cypress' 802.11ac combo solutions is available at www.cypress.com/802.11ac.

It's a tidy upgrade for the compact computer board, and one that will doubtless tempt Pi enthusiasts and tinkerers everywhere to reach for their wallets. Thanks to it, there is now support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced the launch of the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, a revision to its popular single-board computer which brings a faster and cooler-running processor alongside gigabit Ethernet and 5GHz Wi-Fi connectivity.

Unemployment rate in Albania shrinks
The Department of Employment and Workforce said in a news release Monday that the unemployment rate last month was 4.3 percent. New York State's private sector job count increased by 91,600 as of January, compared to a year ago, to 8,119,500.

A faster ARM chip is nice, but the connectivity improvements will likely be the main selling point of this upgrade.

The Raspberry Pi has never been a processing powerhouse, it is created to work efficiently at a cheap price.

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 other connections are unchanged, a 40-pin GPIO connector, four USB 2 ports, an HDMI video output, stereo/composite video, camera and touchscreen ports, and a microSD slot for the software and operating system. "This means that people building products around Pi can go through a much-abbreviated conformance testing process", Upton said. "I think what we've ended up with is something which is a really good B+, a bit too good for a B+, but that would be not really anywhere near enough for a Raspberry Pi 4".
