This morning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation pulled out the packaging from its computer to the next-generation Raspberry Pi 4. The upcoming Raspberry Pi composition – which actually arrives a little earlier due to some good works in SoC – family improvement thanks to the new 28nm Broadcom SoC, which includes, among other things, a more powerful quad-core Cortex-A72 CPU cluster. The single-platform computer is now available, and as its predecessors, prices start at $ 35.
A longtime favorite for tinsmiths, manufacturers and anyone else looking for a design board or a simple computer, the Raspberry Pi family is around since 2012. the update was in 2016 when the Foundation released Raspberry Pi 3. Over the next three years, the technology landscape has changed more justly, as does Pi's core hardware. Although it is still based on Broadcom SoCs, the new Pi includes Broadcom's BCM271

I / O has also received the much needed upgrade for the latest Pi. The new SoC brings with it USB 3 support, which gives access to the platform of SuperSpeed USB speeds for the first time. HDMI support is similar in 2.0 (which means 4K Output Support), and the board can now decode H.264 and H.265 video (another first) at resolutions up to 4K. Networking is enhanced with the addition of a full-speed Gigabit Ethernet port, and the 802.11ac radio access is supported by Bluetooth 5.0.
All in all, the Foundation sells 3 different versions of Raspberry Pi 4, depending on the memory configuration. The $ 35 model comes with 1GB of LPDDR4, while the 2GB and 4GB models are available for $ 45 and $ 55 respectively. Which in the case of the latter two models is a significant strike on the board, as they now have two to four times more memory to play with.
Meanwhile, our sister site Tom's Hardware already has an early review, confirming much of what you would expect from the Raspberry Pi 4 based on the specifications. Processor, memory, and storage performance has been significantly improved over previous models, although the power consumption has risen slightly during the process.
