Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+: See all the new features on the board

Faster, more data

The new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is the fastest Raspberry Pi available, both in terms of raw performance and Wi-Fi speeds.

The new board is a souped up version of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, sharing many of the same specs but overclocking the processor to 1.4GHz -- a 16.7% increase.

On top of the boost to the processor, the new board also adds faster connectivity, adding support for dual-band 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi -- effectively almost tripling the Wi-Fi throughput of the base Pi 3 -- and increases the speed of the board's Ethernet.
