Raspberry Pi 4 Launches With More Power and Options Than Ever Before

Raspberry Pi claims this fourth-generation single-board computer offers three times the processing power and four times the multimedia performance of the Raspberry Pi 3.

Physically, you wouldn't notice any difference as the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B looks similar to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. In the connectivity department, the Pi 4 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 support instead of the older 4.2 version on its predecessor. Full kits, custom cases and so on are also available. If it is, not only will the Raspberry Pi (and its ilk) threaten the entry-level network streamer market but also the entry-level server market where, when not directly connected to a DAC, higher levels of electrical noise are less of an issue.

With the new power-plant of a Broadcom BCM2711 SoC, the RasPi 4 yields a 4-core Cortex-A72 configuration running at 1.5GHz. "The improved capabilities of Raspberry Pi 4 should allow us to address a much larger fraction of that market". It is the first to use a 28nm manufacturing process compared to the 40nm chips used by previous Raspberry Pi models. It features VideoCore VI graphics, and 4K 60fps video output (or two 4K 30fps outputs) plus HEVC video decode.

The Raspberry Pi 4, the first of a new generation of single-board computers from the company, is the first to change that.

Note, though, that the board has a pair of micro-HDMI ports, rather than the previous full-size connector, so you'll need to buy an adapter to use a standard HDMI cable - fortunately that accessory is a mere £1.50 (around $2, AU$3), or an official (4Kp60 capable) micro-HDMI to HDMI cable will set you back $5 (£4, $7). This brings numerous behind-the-scenes technical improvements, along with an extensively modernized user interface, and updated applications including the Chromium 74 web browser.

The Raspberry Pi 4 is available worldwide now, the not-for-profit Raspberry Pi Foundation has confirmed. The 4GB model, on the other hand, will be available at $55.
