The ultimate Raspberry Pi! Raspberry Pi 4 has up to 4GB RAM, a faster quad-core CPU, support for dual displays at up to 4K resolution, Gigabit Ethernet, USB3.0, wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB-C power. That's desktop PC performance!.

Features

  • 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 CPU ( ARM v8, BCM2837)
  • 1GB, 2GB or 4GB RAM (LPDDR4)
  • On-board wireless LAN - dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac
  • On-board Bluetooth 5.0, low-energy (BLE)
  • 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports
  • Gigabit ethernet
  • Power-over-Ethernet(requires additional Raspberry Pi PoE HAT )
  • 40-pin GPIO header
  • 2× micro-HDMI ports (up to 4Kp60 supported)
  • H.265 (4Kp60 decode)
  • H.264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode)
  • OpenGL ES, 3.0 graphics
  • DSI display port, CSI camera port
  • Combined 3.5mm analog audio and composite video jack
  • Micro-SD card slot
  • USB-C power



As always with new Raspberry Pi models, you'll need the latest version of NOOBS or Raspbian to run on your Raspberry Pi 4.

Desktop-level performance The faster 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU on the Raspberry Pi 4's Cortex A72 SoC, coupled with the up to 4GB LPDDR4 RAM give performance comparable to entry-level x86 desktop PCs. You'll see significantly faster boot speeds, and much better performance for CPU-heavy tasks like emulation and media centre usage; much snappier all round!

The Raspberry Pi 4 moves to USB-C power meaning that you'll need a new USB-C power supply that can supply 5V at 3A. We've got a whole range of power supply options


Significantly faster IO The Raspberry Pi 4 has two USB 3.0 ports, for up to 10x faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0, perfect for connecting fast peripherals like SSDs and flash drives. There are also two USB 2.0 ports for connecting less speed-dependent peripherals like keyboards and mice.

The ethernet jack on the Raspberry Pi 4 moves to true gigabit speed, for super-speedy wired networking and, as with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, there's Power-over-Ethernet capability too (requires additional Raspberry Pi PoE HAT ).

4K display support, dual micro-HDMI There are dual micro-HDMI ports that support up to 4Kp60, to use your Raspberry Pi 4 with much larger displays with crisp, sharp, high resolution. Use the H.265 4Kp60 hardware decoding to watch 4K movies in your favourite media centre distro.

For the first time, you'll be able to use dual HDMI displays with the Raspberry Pi. This is great for working on a bunch of different tasks at the same time without having to work in tiny windows.

If you need a micro-HDMI adapter to use your existing HDMI cable with the Raspberry Pi 4 then we've got you covered !

Bluetooth 5.0 and wireless LAN The shift to Bluetooth 5.0 (from 4.2 on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+) means you'll get twice the speed (2 Mbit/s) and four times the range (50m outdoors, 10m indoors) that you did with the previous generation. You'll get better power efficiency compared with Bluetooth 4.2 also.

There's dual-band 802.11 b/g/n/ac wireless LAN, like the previous generation Raspberry Pi, for quick wireless networking with less interference and better reception.

Worth noting that as this is fresh out, not all software is working 100% and retropie for one is not running.

Really excited about this, I've been using a 3 as a 'proper' computer, running i3wm and it's been superb, once the software levels out on this, there is no question, this will be a desktop replacement for me
As soon as retropie has been sorted I will buy the 4gb hopefully I can then run n64 and Dreamcast roms without an issue 👌
You should note that price is for the 1GB. It's considerably more for the 4GB.

Plus you will likely need a new case, and the PSU requirements are different (5V 3A USB-C)

How would these handle windows 10 and Microsoft office?


I suppose, theoretically it's possible, but you will be waiting on an ARM build of Windows (there are some) that run on this (as of today, there are none). I would imagine someone will get it running before long, but it's not what this is for, it's not what windows is for, actually in not sure what windows is for, but I'm pretty sure it's not this.

Changed to USB-C so you need to buy a new power adapter, the layout changes mean "old" cases aren't compatible either, and mini-HDMI will require an adapter. Not looking so enticing as a simple upgrade, but a good point to jump in.

Updated. Thank you
4GB version is out of stock
The 4gb version on back order from RS is £50 £4 cheaper than thepihut I have a Nvidia shield TV but am going to grab a 4gb model when in stock as it will probably make a great 4k media player. Really that's the only one to buy it would be great for a few things like a NAS.

The Pi4 switches from a single full-sized HDMI to two micro HDMI.
This gives the Pi4 the ability to run a pair of 4K monitors at 60fps without additional hardware.
depends what you want this for but some of you might be better off with an atomic pi (not pie lol)
I bought this last month, from the US, shipped to France, ended up about 50 bucks including tax.....

Unfortunately not. It doesn't support dual 4K 60Hz.

I've got one running retropie (which runs all the old computers/consoles up to ps1)......this one should allow n64 and dreamcast.

fellow i3'er!

i have resisted any of the pi-variants because, the reason i use the rpi in the first place is for focussed computing - no distractions. Which for me is hard! - with the pi, i know that rasbian will just-work™ and that if it doesn't there are plenty of people before me who have had issues. I didn't even go with arch as i wanted somethign optimised for the pi out of the box without messing about in configs.

Setting up rasbian, urxvt, i3wm is pretty trivial - and i'm good to go. I figured that while an odroid might give me better performance the pi would give me stability.

Also, the pi could be powered from the Dell monitor i use, this means just one cable, with some good cable management, a flirc case, i have a nice clean setup externally as well as internally :-)

Good idea, was it easy to set up the plex server, or do you need linux skills.

I must admit i had problems first time round but we are talking a few years ago......back in the days of pi2.

When it came to setting the pi3 up it was much easier and usb sticks were self mounting as previously they werent and i couldnt get my head round the "walk through".
Always wanted one of the Raspberry pi, I use Linux on my laptops. If I wanted to use one mainly as a VPN server and firewall connected to a router, what are the tutorials available and info needed?Wouldn't it suffice a previous Raspberry pi basic model?Plus, if I wanted to use a huawei internet dongle plugged via USB, would that be a viable alternative for sharing internet throughout the Raspberry pi to the wifi router via ethernet whilst also running VPN server and firewall and adblockers?
Is there any benefit in using this new pi instead of pi 3 for arcade emulation?

retro games emulator is very popular (RetroPie). I use mine to run my 3d printer (octoprint). There's hundreds of things you can do with one of these and the new ones are far more powerful than the previous version
Basically I don't have broadband or fibre at home and only using internet with a wifi usb dongle(Huawei e8278 wingle) ,and wanted to amplify the wireless range by plugging it into a wireless router which supports my dongle via USB for 3g/4g sharing;however that asus router I bought didn't recognize it and so have to return it and bought a Tp-link D9 who is supposed to officially support huawei e8278 via USB for internet sharing..but was thinking at the Raspberry pi as a potential (cheap) alternative/complementary solution.
You can get loads of info here :-

raspberrypi.org/magpi/ it's the official mag and is FREE to download.

Not unless you're playing an "arcade" game with slowdown. If you want to play n64, dc and ps2 games then yes this is what we've all been waiting for.

We'll just have to wait a bit longer now until we get images that are compatible.

One of mine I have as a web server (Pi 3). One is a Pi Hole DNS advert blocker for my entire home network (Pi 3). One is connected to a fancy light (Pi Zero). One is a desktop computer (Pi 3) which will soon be replaced with the 4GB Pi 4 I ordered this morning

I had Kodi running on I think a Pi 2.

I'll be looking at using 1 as a desktop machine, possibly just as a temporary (might even be permanent) until I can get a desktop.

It's a great little machine, some good cases to buy out there. As mentioned you can make a retro gaming machine and buy a case for it eg 1 to reflect the games it will play.

Hey, absolute newbie when it comes to raspberry pi or anything similar. Tried googling and can't really see anything in relation to pi 4 so thought I'd ask - want to buy one with the intention of running a terraria server. Is it worth investing into the 4th and a bit more ram or the older ones would be fine? All info online seems to relate pi2/3 but doesn't go into much detail of how ram and other actually impacts running the server and for how many people and be on it without causing any lag. Not sure if this is of any help but it would be running something called modo and tshock for the server. Thanks in advance!

I remember that previously N64 games weren't quite smooth though because the pi wasn't powerful enough. Has this one received a spec bump? If so by how much?
