The Raspberry Pi Foundation is today officially launched the latest Raspberry Pi mini PC in the form of the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B which can be equipped with up to 4 GB of RAM. The latest generation Pi mini PC can be equipped with 1 GB, 2 GB or 4 GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM and is priced at £34, £44 or £54 respectively.
The Raspberry Pi 4 moves to USB-C power meaning that you’ll need a new USB-C power supply that can supply 5V at 3A and is now equipped with a faster 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU on the Raspberry Pi 4’s Cortex A72 SoC, coupled with the up to 4GB LPDDR4 RAM give performance comparable to entry-level x86 desktop PCs. Using the new Raspberry Pi 4, you can run two monitors at once with support for 4K resolutions.
“There are dual micro-HDMI ports that support up to 4Kp60, to use your Raspberry Pi 4 with much larger displays with crisp, sharp, high resolution. Use the H.265 4Kp60 hardware decoding to watch 4K movies in your favourite media centre distro.”
The new Raspberry Pi 4 also has upgraded USB capacity and is equipped with two USB 2 ports together with two USB 3 ports, which can transfer data up to ten times faster. Features and specifications of the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B include :
