A New Slice of Pi

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest product in the popular Raspberry Pi range of computers. It offers ground-breaking advances in processor speed, multi-media performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+. while retaining backwards compatibility and similar power consumption. For the end user, Raspberry Pi 4 Model B provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems.

Key features include a high-performance 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-display support at resolutions up to 4K via a pair of micro-HDMI ports, hardware video decode at up to 4Kp60, up to 4GB of RAM, dual-band 2.4/5.0 GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PoE capability (via a separate PoE HAT add-on).

The dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth have modular compliance certification, allowing the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.

With today's launch of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B in three RAM configurations, the Raspberry Pi Foundation hopes this will be viewed as a contender for your next basic desktop computer. The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B has specs comparable to if not better than some current Chromebooks on the market. The upgrade to 1.5 GHz from 1.4 GHz and the option for up to 4 GB of RAM show the foundation is truly after a machine capable of handling everyday tasks with ease.
