Raspberry Pi 4 : Huge power in a single pack

2 min read

Raspberry Pi is a standard for inexpensive single board computing, powering the small devices in robotics to devices in IoT. The new version of Raspberry- ‘Pi 4’ comes with great power and performance to use it as a small desktop PC and also ability to output 4K video at 60 Hz.

The specs of Pi version 4 is quite impressive.

  1. 1.5 GHz Quad Core ARM cortex A72 processor
  2. Upto 4GB Memory
  3. Wireless AC
  4. Gigabit Ethernet
  5. Output 4k video at 60Hz


  • Much faster than prior Raspberry Pis
  • USB 3 Ports
  • Ability to output 4K video at 60 Hz
  • Dual-monitor support


  • Key software doesn’t work at launch
  • Poor high-res video playback

As its predecessor Raspberry pi 3 has some overheating issues. The raspberry pi 4 is no different with some more heat than pi 3.

For the same 35$ (approx.) price you gets faster speed than before. The 45$ model has 2GB RAM and 55$ model has 4GB RAM.

Pi 4 stands head and shoulders above its predecessors and all the other inexpensive single board computers on the market. It has some issues in a software today but they all gone in future with new software updates. If you need any raspberry pi today, you can go with Pi 4 with huge power and performance packs in a small package.
