Faster Ethernet (Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0).
It is Pi day (assuming you live in a country that insists on writing dates in the frankly barking mad MM/DD format) and after a quiet two years, the Raspberry Pi Foundation have pushed out a new version of the tiny computer.
The main improvements are to networking.
Building upon the phenomenal success of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, which will remain in production, the new board is the latest product in the Raspberry Pi 3 range and targets a very wide range of users including students and enthusiasts, as well as experienced engineers and professionals who are developing innovative Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The Raspberry Pi 1 B+, Raspberry Pi 2B, and Raspberry Pi 3B are all still available for $25, $35, and $35, respectively. Raspberry Pi opted for BCM2837B0, which is the same chip found in the original 3B but this time around, it's capable of reaching a higher clock speed of 1.4GHz. It uses the same 5V/2.5A power as before and will also support power-over-Ethernet with an accessory (coming soon) sold separately. In the product shot you can see the wireless circuitry is installed beneath an embossed metal shield. Out of which, the Raspberry Pi 3 accounts for over 9 million units. Even the price is the same, the new board can be purchased for $35. These include the new processor's improved power integrity, packaging, and heat spreader, and internal clocking and voltage rule tuning. "This has allowed us to certify the entire board as a radio module under FCC rules, which in turn will significantly reduce the cost of conformance testing".More news: British engineer GKN rejects final £8.1bn Melrose bid

The new computer also gets Power-over-Ethernet support, improved PXE network and USB mass-storage booting, and improved thermal management.
The Pi 3 Model B+ is faster, but also consumes more power and might overheat during resource intensive tasks.
Raspberry Pi is a fantastic low-priced hardware platform that enables hackers and developers to create IoT solutions. Speaking to TechRepublic, Upton said, "It's not a Raspberry Pi 4".
