Raspberry Pi Model B+ is officially available for $35

Raspberry Pi Foundation

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ will certainly help the Foundation to sell a lot more units of its affordable computing boards. Although the USB 2.0 connection to the application processor limits the available bandwidth, it is still significantly faster than the Pi 3 Rev B. 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.

The key improvements on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ are its processor and networking capabilities.

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is now available for purchase from its website for $35. It is now ready to order supplied with the official Raspberry Pi case.

The Pi 2 was followed, naturally, by the Pi 3, the first to include a 64-bit processor - though its operating system, the Linux-based Raspbian, remains stubbornly 32-bit - and on-board 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The new board is powered by Broadcom-manufactured low power ARM chip; it is a Quad Core 64-bit Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.4 GHz and has a new head spreader that keeps the chip cooler. It also got a microSD port for data storing and the support for Power over Ethernet or PoE along with a PoE HAT add-on. The Foundation claims the Model B+ is capable of "roughly three times the wired and wireless network throughput" of its predecessor.

Tennis fans were left confused with Serena Williams vs Venus Williams
It was the sisters' earliest meeting in a tournament since the second round of the 1998 Australian Open . Roger Federer and Serena Williams have dominated their respective circuits in tennis for over a decade.

As it was the case with previous Raspberry Pi models, the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is already available with the same USA $35/£32.00/€38,99 price tag.

According to industry analysers, the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is the most advanced Raspberry Pi computer device till date with nearly all the advanced connectivity options.

Of course, as smart home devices continue to get more user-friendly, its likely many of these Raspberry Pi projects will be superseded by more professional, streamlined products.
