As the whole RPi thing is of British origin, why are they calling today "Pi Day"??

Surely, that only works in the USA?!

"Pi Day" has existed long before the Raspberry Pi !

 

I guess it's philosophical but 3.1414592.. has existed as long as there's been decimal representation of numbers.

I'm not in the mood to double post what I wrote in:

Edit: Tnx to AwNeil and a bit of experimenting I just learned I can right click on my #64 over there and then copy a link to that post from here:

Well, yes.... but welcome to global marketing (and there is no 14th month) so the USA bass-ackwards convention wins in this instance.

New Raspberry Pi Improves Processing, Connectivity

...

Compared to its predecessor, Raspberry Pi 3B+ delivers somewhat better performance in the 2.4GHz band, and far better performance in the 5GHz band.

 

Previous Raspberry Pi devices have used the LAN951x family of chips, which combine a USB hub and 10/100 Ethernet controller. For Raspberry Pi 3B+, Microchip provided an upgraded version, LAN7515, which supports Gigabit Ethernet. While the USB 2.0 connection to the application processor limits the available bandwidth, the module still sees roughly a threefold increase in throughput compared to Raspberry Pi 3B.

...

The company also highlights that the Raspberry Pi 3B+ does consume substantially more power than its predecessor, so it strongly encourages designers to use a high-quality 2.5A power supply.

Hello?

the site seemed to be having "technical difficulties" - but now seems to have recovered ... ?

Thanks.

 

I think probably half of my RPi population is from "prizes" or freebies!

Hmm.. and that 2.5A is above what the micro-USB connector is spec'd to be able to cope with ??

I didn't even bother to enter, I have several RPis laying around and it seems I can never get the time to cook any of them...

Raspberry Pis are certainly not known for low power consumption!

Only one 3A micro-B at Mouser :

https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Wurth-Electronics/629105150521?qs=a9WhcLg8qCzXiH7kZP8GRQ%3d%3d

 

The USB hub may be what limits.

Would be surprised if a notebook PC's USB hub would supply 2.5A

yes

 

Another source for zero price Raspberry Pi 3 B+ is the element14 RoadTest though that's not zero cost as there are some T&C (detailed review, etc)
