Raspberry Pi 4 Model B – 8GB RAM
Introducing the most powerful member of the ever-popular Raspberry Pi family. The fourth-generation 8GB Raspberry Pi 4 Model B rivals its desktop competitors by bringing:
- 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 CPU & 8GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM for serious processing power.
- Better networking with true Gigabit Ethernet as well as wireless LAN & Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
- Dual Micro-HDMI at 4K Display resolution for bigger and better viewing.
- USB-C stable power for your projects, 2x USB 3.0 ports and 2x USB 2.0 ports for various peripherals plus much more…
Take speed & performance to a whole new level with the Pi 4 8GB, but in the same Raspberry Pi form factor you know and love. You can even design the board straight into end products as both the dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth have modular compliance certification reducing time to market and costs.
What are the features & benefits of the Raspberry Pi 4 8GB?
The Raspberry Pi 8GB incorporates a new and improved quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU to rival desktop computers. For the first time, the Pi 4 is available in a choice of memory sizes, and the Raspberry Pi with 8GB RAM sits as the largest member of the fourth-generation family. These quicker processing times will see your 8GB Pi carry out complex tasks much more easily, making it more viable than ever as a desktop option or replacement
The Raspberry Pi 8GB RAM offers true Gigabit Ethernet and PoE capability (requires additional PoE HAT); 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 with up to four times the range of the old specification. All together these make the 8GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 Model B board an ideal fit for your next SBC-based IoT project.
Upgraded USB capacity and power
The 8GB Pi 4 boasts four USB ports – two USB 2.0 ports and two upgraded USB 3.0 ports. Replacing the Micro USB connector of the Raspberry Pi 3, the Raspberry Pi 4 8GB RAM utilises a USB Type-C connector for power input, allowing users to consolidate their cable collection. The 8GB Pi 4 also welcomes back a headphone jack to complete an intelligent range of revised and upgraded port features.
Dual video output
Two micro-HDMI ports replace the single full-size HDMI connector on previous iterations, allowing the Raspberry Pi 4 8GB to support two 4k monitors. The Pi 4’s hardware decoding has also been improved to allow it to decode 4K video at 60fps using HEVC encoding.
Fans of the series needn’t worry about the Raspberry Pi 8GB Model B not working with any of their existing Pi projects, as the board’s 40-Pin GPIO header and software are fully backwards-compatible.
