Raspberry foundation has now announced the all-new Raspberry Pi 4 model B
- It consists of options with 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB of Ram.
- It supports one 4k 60fps or two 4k 30fps display outputs.
- The device is now available for purchase in India.
Here is Raspberry Pi 4.The Raspberry foundation has now announced the all-new Raspberry Pi 4 model B which is a remarkable upgrade to the Raspberry Pi 3 generation. It’s an impressive upgrade. The new device’s processor turned out to be production-ready, while it was not expected until 2020 and there were rumors that it would take time to develop and now it is unveiled, which saved a year of production time. This new model can provide a PC like performance according to the founder and CEO of the Raspberry foundation Ltd.
Physical design & specifications:
As far as the physical and hardware design is concerned, the Raspberry Pi 4 model B is related to the Pi 3 model B+. It is a single board computer which has a lot of connectors that is the size of the deck of a card. It starts with a faster system on the chip. The processor uses the Cortex- A72 Architecture which is quad-core 64-bit ARMv8 at 1.5GHz. It can support H.265 hardware video decoding, for instance. This model, the user, to select Ram according to his demand changing the trend when it had stuck Ram of 512MB or 1GB. Now it has optional 2GB and even 4GB Ram for the user. As the foundation is switching from LPDDR2 to LPDDR4 as raw memory capacity, the memory transfer speed should be faster than before.
As connectivity is concerned, two significant changes are in the latest version of the Raspberry Pi 4. Now user can get real Gigabit Ethernet. It should open up bulky potential use cases for servers and headless Raspberry Pi devices. There are two ports which support USB 3.0 and two ports which support USB 3.0. There is USB-C port for the power brick. Bluetooth has also updated from 4.2 to 5.0. There is a significant hardware change made in the new Raspberry Pi 4, and the full-size HDMI port is gone. Now users will get two micro HDMI ports which will let them plug two 4k displays at 60 frames/second using Raspberry Pi 4. There is a micro SD card slot so that one can put the operating system and user data in a memory card. There is a 40-pin GPIO header that must be compatible with existing add-on boards.
The base model costs nearly $35, and the 2GB model costs $45 while the 4GB model costs $55. The Raspberry Pi first initiated as a simple computer designed to teach kids how to code, and it has become a versatile device with many different use cases.
