Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
The new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ board actually uses the same footprint as the previous B model and the Raspberry Pi 2. Therefore you can use it as an upgrade to existing projects or even use most existing cases.
The new B+ model features upgraded board components to help your applications and calculations run faster and smoother.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ also features an exciting 64-bit quad core processor running at least 10% faster than the previous model. It also has improved thermal management.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is the latest product in the Raspberry Pi 3 range.
