DESCRIPTION

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is the latest product in the Raspberry Pi 3 range, boasting a 64-bit quad core processor running at 1.4GHz, dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 4.2/BLE, faster Ethernet, and PoE capability via a separate PoE HAT.

 

Hardware improvements from the Pi 3 to Pi 3 B+

  • Faster CPU
    • The Pi 3 Model B+ is based on the same quad-core, 64-bit processor, as the Pi 3 Model B. Like the Model B, the B+'s is based on a Arm Cortex A53 architecture.
    • However, the B+ ups the speed of the CPU to 1.4GHz from 1.2GHz in the original Model B, an increase of about 15%.
  • Faster Wi-Fi
    • While the original Model B only supported 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, the Model B+ has a dual-band wireless antenna, supporting 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi.
    • The 5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi offers a maximum throughput of 1.3Gbps, almost three times the maximum throughput of 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi found on the Pi 3 Model B. That said I was unable to achieve a significant improvement in throughput in my testing below.
    • The B+ also offers support for Bluetooth 4.2, an improvement over the 4.1 support found in the Pi 3 Model B.
  • Faster wired Ethernet
    • On top of the Wi-Fi upgrade, the wired internet also has a speed bump, courtesy of the board's new Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0 bridge, which ups the maximum throughput to about 300Mbps.
    • Another plus for those using the Pi with a wired Ethernet connection is the inclusion of support for a Power Over Ethernet [POE] Hardware Attached on Top [HAT] board, which will add the ability for the Ethernet cable to power the board.
The dual-band wireless LAN comes with modular compliance certification, allowing the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced wireless LAN compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.

Software installation

  • Beginners should start with the NOOBS (New Out Of Box Software) operating system installation manager, which gives the user a choice of operating system from the standard distributions.
  • SD cards with NOOBS pre-installed should be available HERE.
  • Alternatively, you can download NOOBS.
  • Raspbian is the recommended operating system for normal use on a Raspberry Pi.
