Raspberry Pi 4 Release Date and Specs
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is a new and improved version, announced today by the Raspberry Pi foundation. The Pi 4 features a Cortex-A72 quad-core processor, an HDMI 4-port pair with support for 4K and more while maintaining a starting price of $ 35, similar to the previous model. The Foundation created the first Pi computer in 2011 to promote the study of computer science and electronics in schools by creating a cheap and easy to operate a computer. Since then, the Raspberry Pi has gained a large audience, not only among schools, but also among industry and home users, given the ease and convenience of using Raspberry Pi computers for many different purposes.
The new Pi 4 offers a relatively high performance leap for previous generations with an upgraded processor, up to 4GB memory and support for up to 2 screens at 4K resolution using a micro HDMI output pair.
Raspberry Pi 4
The new Pi 4 model comes in a design similar to the 3 +, but with significant upgrades:
- Broadcom’s BCM2711 chipset with Cortex-A72 quad-core processor operating at 1.5GHz, a 3-fold upgrade in performance with newer cores and more frequency.
- Memory: 1GB, 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4 memory, average of 12 GB.
Bluetooth: Connections 5.0 Locations 4.2.
- Dual USB 3.0 USB to Dual USB 2.0 Connections instead of USB 2.0 ports only.
- The couple orders micro-HDMI video with 4K video support instead of a fully isolated HDMI port.
Price and Availability
The price of the new Raspberry Pi 4 will cost $ 35 for the 1 GB memory and $ 45 and $ 55 for the 2 GB and 4 GB versions, respectively. With a low price of $ 35 for the 1 GB model, the new Pi 4 is a good alternative to using as a simple and inexpensive computer, the primary purpose of which Pi panels were created in advance. In addition to the basic model, upgrading the amount of memory up to 4GB in the new Pi resolves a problematic bottleneck that existed in previous versions with a low memory capacity of up to 1GB only.
