For all you tinkerers within community: https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-3-model-b-plus/

 

 

 

RPi3+ in short:

 

- 1.4 GHz CPU speed (instead of 1.2 GHz)

 

- 1 Gbit/s LAN chip (but limited to ~310Mbit/s net due to I/F restrictions)

 

- 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi (eff. ~100 Mbit/s for the latter)

 

- BT 4.2

 

- Network & Mass storage bootable by default

 

- Improved heat management

 

- PoE power supply (with add-on board)

 

- Same price





Nope, English isn't my mother tongue. But that's why I'm here. smile

Pity there's no SATA, but still a nice little upgrade. Hopefully it doesn't break any apps like the original Pi 3 did.

Older model PI's already made great media players (with KODI/OSMC) - This newer model even better.

 

I see there has been an Android port available for a while (hadn't noticed that).

elpenguino: An improved network speed will be welcome.

 

 

 

It isn't the full 1GHz Ethernet though.

 

The network still shares the bus with the the USB2.0.

 

The claim is about 300Mbs on the Ethernet.

 

Of course when you look at the rest of the RasPi hardware, then it can't sustain that sort of read/write for long anyway.

 

It still seems like a useful stage upgrade to the Pi.

 

Pi 3+ is a good name.

 

I hope for a Pi 4 with USB3.0 and 1GHZ network:)

Waiting for more information on the PoE hat/add-on board. Basically these would be brilliant with PXE and PoE.. as long as the PoE add-on isn't prohibitively priced.

This will make the Pi a much better VPN client.
