New Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Available Now for Just $35

Raspberry Pi Foundation

The Raspberry Pi is the little computer that could.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced a new version of its modular compute platform: the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. The Raspberry Pi 1 B+, Raspberry Pi 2B, and Raspberry Pi 3B are all still available for $25, $35, and $35, respectively. "Since then, we've sold over nine million Raspberry Pi 3 units (we've sold 19 million Raspberry Pis in total), which have been put to work in schools, homes, offices and factories all over the globe". There's also a new PCB antenna similar to the one introduced on the cheaper Raspberry Pi Zero.

The new "plus" addition to the popular range of micro-computers is priced the same as its immediate predecessor, but has been treated to a Broadcom BCM2837B0 1.4 GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 system-on-chip, an updated version of the processing brain used in the 3B. Support for dual-band 802.11ac wireless LAN has been added to allow connections to 5 GHz networks. It says that this improvement has been made possible by the improved thermal design. Compared to its predecessor - the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - the latest variant comes with a faster CPU and faster wireless throughput.

"Raspberry Pi 3B+ delivers somewhat better performance in the 2.4GHz band, and far better performance in the 5GHz band", noted board designer Roger Thornton. The upgraded chip supports Gigabit Ethernet, resulting in performance improvement. This is a three times the improvements over previous boards.

You can purchase the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (in) directly from the Raspberry Pi Foundation website.

Finally: The upgraded Pi also now supports power-over-ethernet (PoE), meaning the device will soon be able to be powered up through its ethernet port, though you'll need to wait for a separate Poe HAT to launch "shortly".
