Guides for product: Raspberry Pi 3 - Model B+ - 1.4GHz Cortex-A53 with 1GB RAM

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the most popular Raspberry Pi computer made, and the Pi Foundation knows you can always make a good thing better! And what could make the Pi 3 better? How about a faster processor, 5 GHz WiFi, and updated Ethernet chip with PoE capability? Good guess - that's exactly what they did!

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is the latest product in the Raspberry Pi 3 range, boasting an updated 64-bit quad core processor running at 1.4GHz with built-in metal heatsink, dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless LANfaster (300 mbps) Ethernet, and PoE capability via a separate PoE HAT.

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ maintains the same mechanical footprint as both the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. Adafruit made/brand cases will still fit but some other cases may not, especially ones that depend on component location or have a built in a heatsink.

You can still use all your favorite Raspbian or PIXEL software with this update. You MUST make sure to upgrade your Raspbian operating system install to the latest version so that the firmware can support the new chips! Old SD cards from previous releases will not work without a upgrade!

Note: Our 5V 2.4 A power supply works great with the Pi 3 Model B+ and provides plenty of power to the chip, Ethernet, and any USB add-ons you plug in.

The dual-band wireless LAN comes with modular compliance certification, that's the metal tin in the corner of the Pi, with the logo stamped on it. This allows the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced wireless LAN compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.

Curious about what's new and what's the same with the Raspberry Pi Model B+? Here's our video where we explain everything you need to know!

Note: Due to popular demand, there might be some delay in shipping orders containing Pi 3 Model B+!

Please note: Some boards are made in the UK, some in China. WE DO NOT KNOW IN ADVANCE WHICH ONES YOU MAY RECEIVE!
