Fake listing?

Sat Nov 09, 2019 7:34 pm

Just wondering if this is a fake listing: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Rasp ... 0009.m1982

I don't remember a heat spreader on the Pi 3B.
1 * Raspberry Pi Zero W, 1 * Raspberry Pi 2, 1 * Raspberry Pi 3 1 * Raspberry Pi 3B + :mrgreen:

Did not the revision 1.3 of the 3B have the latter BCM2837B0 SoC ???

I have a vague recollection that the Pi2Bv1.2 and Pi3B switched to the B0 stepping of the BCM2837, which is the one with the die inverted and the heat spreader. So it could easily be real, and the price is reasonable. What isn't reasonable is the "people also looked at" Pi4B for GBP 16 and some.

Huh... There was a 1.3 revision? I must have not heard about it.

Take a look here https://www.raspberrypi.org/app/uploads ... 3B-001.pdf

Says the SOC was changed on 3B v1.2
