Raspberry Pi 4 brings new GPU, USB 3.0, 4K

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 1

The Raspberry Pi 4 was officially unveiled this morning and has become available immediately.

The selling points here are a much faster boot-up time, and way faster overall performance than the Pi 3 - in fact the new Pi is comparable to an entry-level desktop PC, but obviously at a much cheaper price.

The Raspberry Pi 4 will come with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 CPU running at 1.5Ghz, which can decode high-dynamic range 4Kp60 HEVC and drive two 4K screens simultaneously for powering monitors or digital signage.

The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 1GB of RAM is priced at £34 or $35 (around AU$50), and you'll pay £44 or $45 (around AU$65) for the 2GB version, and £54 or $55 (around AU$80) for the top-end offering with 4GB of RAM. The GPU is the VideoCore VI, and makes this the first RasPi to step beyond the aging VideoCore IV. Today, the Raspberry Pi 4 launched for $35, boasting 3x the processing power of the previous generation. Elsewhere in the SoC design there is triple the available memory bandwidth (with up to 4GB LPDDR4, rather than max 1GB of LPDDR2), an upgraded display pipeline, and I/O limitations of previous models have been addressed by including on-board Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express controllers. Instead, they're using the Mesa "V3D" driver developed by Eric Anholt at Broadcom over the last five years.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has just announced the Raspberry Pi 4, a new generation of the barebones computer that promises PC-like level of performance thanks to a series of highly-anticipated upgrades. All these components will also be available for purchase individually. The Raspberry Pi 4 is a major overhaul and their most radical update yet while base pricing still starts out at $35 Dollars. You can buy the Raspberry Pi 4 from element14 or OKdo.

The Raspberry Pi 4 also comes with new accessories, like cases, power supplies, and cables, but also with an upgraded desktop kit which costs $120 and comprises the device itself, an official case, a PSU, mouse and keyboard, a pair of HDMI cables, the Beginner's Guide, and a 32GB microSD card.

There is also a new version of Raspbian, the Debian-based operating system for Raspberry Pi devices.
