The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest computer board from Raspberry Pi. This latest version offers more processing power, more memory and more connectivity while being backward compatible with the projects created on previous models.
What’s new with Raspberry Pi 4?
● The Raspberry Pi 4 has received a performance boost with an upgraded processor giving it similar power to an entry level PC.
● There is now a choice of memory size; 2GB and 4GB to enable more complicated processes to run efficiently.
● Dual micro-HDMI ports enables a dual screen set-up – previous versions featured 1 standard HDMI port.
● Up to 4K video decoding.
● 2 x USB 3.0 ports enable faster connectivity to other peripherals – previous models has 4 USB 2.0 ports.
● Power is supplied via USB-C – Raspberry Pi 3 was powered via micro-USB at 5.1v
