Raspberry PI 4 Released – Complete specs and pricing

A new version of the Raspberry PI 4 model has been released, and it is incredible update over the older model. A few years ago, I got Raspberry Pi 3 . It was my first 64-bit ARM board. It came with a 64-bit CPU. Here are the complete specs for an updated 64-bit credit card size Raspberry PI 4 desktop computer level of performance.

From the blog post:

We have a surprise for you today: Raspberry Pi 4 is now on sale, starting at $35. 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 4 specs

  1. CPU – Broadcom BCM2711, Quad core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz
  2. RAM – 1GB, 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM (depending on model)
  3. WiFI – 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz IEEE 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, BLE
  4. Ethernet – Gigabit
  5. USB – 2 USB 3.0 ports; 2 USB 2.0 ports
  6. GPIO header – Raspberry Pi standard 40 pin
  7. HDMI – 2 × micro-HDMI ports (up to 4kp60 supported)
  8. Display port – 2-lane MIPI DSI
  9. Camera port – 2-lane MIPI CSI
  10. Audio – 4-pole stereo audio and composite video port
  11. Storage – Micro-SD card slot for loading operating system and data storage
  12. Misc – H.265 (4kp60 decode), H264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode), OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics
  13. OS – Debian Linux 10 based

Key improvements from Pi 3 model B+ to Pi 4 model

The Raspberry Pi 4 runs on forthcoming Debian 10 Buster release. The Ethernet controller provides full throughput due to an external Broadcom PHY over a dedicated RGMII link. Apart from that USB 3, dual HDMI, an upgraded CPU, and massive memory would provide much better performance to run applications.

Raspberry PI 4 model pricing

Raspberry Pi 4 prices as per model:

  • 1GB RAM model – $35
  • 2GB RAM model – $45
  • 4GB RAM model – $55

You can order RPi4 online here.

Conclusion

Building toy Linux clusters out of RPis for fun and education with 4GB of RAM, gigabit Ethernet, and modern ARM A72 cores for $55 is going to be awesome for sure. For more information see the official news here. What do you think? Would you upgrade?
