A Faster New Raspberry Pi 3 is Now Available


Speaking of the Internet of Things, the new Pi's Wi-Fi has "modular compliance certification", which means if developers use this Pi hardware in their final product, they won't have as much of a hassle getting the Wi-Fi certified by regulators.

Now, a new revision named Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is right on schedule for Pi Day.

He said Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi spoke on democracy outside the Parliament but don't practise it.

The new board also has Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0 for faster wired networking speeds. The Model B+ sports a 1.4GHz quad-core Broadcom BCM2837B0 processor (compared to the 1.2GHz BCM2837 chip in the Pi 3), which the company says has come as a result of improved power integrity and thermal design. These have found their way into in schools, homes, offices and factories all over the globe.

A new version of the Raspberry Pi 3 has been unleashed, with a faster processor and notable improvements on the connectivity front. The B+ takes the 2016 Pi 3 Model B and ups the processing power and Wi-Fi speeds, alongside some other minor tweaks-all of which are outlined in detail below.

UVA's De'Andre Hunter to miss NCAA Tournament with broken wrist
The Cavaliers (31-2) earned all 65 first-place votes in Monday's poll to remain on top for the fifth straight week. U.Va. - the NCAA tournament's No. 1 overall seed - opens play on Friday against 16th-seeded UMBC in Charlotte.

Selling for just $35, the UK-made machine has become something of a phenomenon, selling close to 18 million boards since the first Pi was released in 2012.

If you're a bit puzzled by all this and what you may use this for, then check out https://www.hackster.io to see some of the awesome projects others are creating. Together these allow us to reach higher clock frequencies (or to run at lower voltages to reduce power consumption), and to more accurately monitor and control the temperature of the chip. It must be noted that the Raspberry Pi 3B+ consumes "substantially more power than its predecessor", and thus a high-quality 2.5A power supply is recommended. The upgraded processor results in a 15% performance improvement. It throttles down further beyond 80 degrees (an unlikely event), notes PCMag. There are no plans to discount older models or cease production until there's a clear sign demand is drying up. Raspberry Pi 1B+ will continue to sell for $25, Pi 2B and Pi 3B for $35. Speaking to TechRepublic, Upton said, "It's not a Raspberry Pi 4".
