The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ microcomputer promises more speed

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ microcomputer promises more speed

Gigabit Ethernet. The Model B+ supports gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet, though the required USB 2.0 connection limits the speed to about 315 Mbps max.

The new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ comes with improvements in speed across the board, as the company promises to deliver "more processing and faster communications". Now, a new revision named Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is right on schedule for Pi Day. To mark this occasion Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the new version small in size and affordable for DIY enthusiasts.

Poor attendances at Arsenal home games a worry for Wenger
The Gunners got back to winning ways in the Premier League after a hard spell thanks to a comfortable win at the Emirates. Paul Merson is in no doubt who the man should be to replace under-fire Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger .

PXE boot support. The Model B+ is the first Raspberry Pi to support PXE Ethernet boot, meaning that it can find a boot image over a connected network instead of from local storage. Still, the 3B+ is unquestionably the best Raspberry Pi available at the moment, and in keeping with Raspberry Pi tradition, one can be had on the cheap.

The B+ has the same form factor and dimensions as the Pi 2 B and Pi 3 B, making it a drop-in replacement but with a better processor and connectivity.

Apple Music Boasts 38 Million Subscribers Despite Shaky Start
With Spotify available on PlayStation Music, you have a special way to enjoy streaming music on your PlayStation 4 while gaming. Other Spotify payment options - such as student or family accounts - will be considered at a later date, based on user demand.

Like most new Linux hacker boards, the B+ moves from 10/100Mbps to 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet.

For the new board, the Raspberry Pi Foundation uses an updated version of the processor in the Pi 3 Model B. The new version can hit higher clock frequencies, and more accurately monitor and control the temperature of the chip, according to a blog post by Raspberry Pi chief Eben Upton. The latter additions will be particularly important for people who use a Pi as a basis for Internet of Things devices (IoT). The entire board is now certified as a radio module under FCC rules, which will reduce the cost of conformance testing Raspberry Pi-based products. Raspberry Pi Foundation aims to launch its own dedicated PoE HAT that will generate the 5V needed to power this Pi model. Raspberry Pi 1B+ will continue to sell for $25, Pi 2B and Pi 3B for $35. The revised processor carries model number BCM2837B0 and has a metallic heat spreader to improve thermal performance. The widely imitated 40-pin expansion header has not changed. Mechanical drawings and schematics have already been posted.

Mourinho warns off Real Madrid from signing Man Utd star
United welcome Sevilla to Manchester following a goalless draw in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie. De Gea has kept 15 clean sheets in the Premier League this season, more than any other goalkeeper.
