The Raspberry PI Foundation unveiled the all new Pi 4 B . The price is $35 with upto 4GB of RAM offered.
Users can also select from 1GB, 2GB, or even 4GB of RAM this time around.
“This is a comprehensive upgrade, touching almost every element of the platform. For the first time we provide a PC-like level of performance for most users, while retaining the interfacing capabilities and hackability of the classic Raspberry Pi line,” the Raspberry Pi Foundation said.
Here’s a rundown of the other key specs:
- Full-throughput gigabit Ethernet
- Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi
- Bluetooth 5.0
- 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0
- Dual 4K monitor support
- microSD storage card (up to 50Mbps)
- 40-pin GPIO connector
- VideoCore VI graphics supporting OpenGL ES 3.x
- 4Kp60 hardware decode of HEVC video
- Complete compatibility with earlier Raspberry Pi products
“In some ways, this is rather a poignant product for us. Back in March, we explained that the 3+ platform is the final iteration of the ‘classic’ Raspberry Pi: whatever we do next will of necessity be less of evolution because it will need new core silicon, on a new process node, with new memory technology. So 3A+ is about closing things out in style, answering one of our most frequent customer requests, and clearing the decks so we can start to think seriously about what comes next,” the company said at the time.
The Raspberry Pi 4 was not supposed to arrive until 2020, but here it is, starting at $35 (the 2GB and 4GB models cost $45 and $55, respectively). It is available in the Raspberry Pi Store (online) and at the company’s store in Cambridge, UK, as well as from a few authorized retailers.
