The Raspberry Pi Foundation has launched its new Raspberry Pi 4 minicomputer, now with more performance, Gigabit Ethernet port, up to 4 GB of RAM and compatible with up to two 4K screens. This list of improvements could sound like an expensive update but, nothing is further from the truth, the new model remains at a modest minimum of $ 35 for the 1 GB model. Above are the 2 and 4 GB models for those who need it. Besides, the minicomputer includes two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0, support for USB 3.0 power supply with up to 500 mA current. With this we can use powerful USB devices. The specifications are:
With the new Raspberry Pi 4, the foundation has made the leap to 28 nm, recovering its BCM283X to create the new processor BCM2711. Thanks to this change, they have been able to replace the outdated Cortex-A53 with the more powerful Cortex-A72, which will give us two or four times more power than the Pi 3+. The use of LPDDR4 memory also offers greater bandwidth, and with that it can offer support for video decoding and 3D graphics at up to 4k and 60 fps (or dual at 30 fps).
For anyone who wants to get the most complete package, the foundation has prepared a special one for 120 dollars that includes:
