The Raspberry Pi 4 offers ground-breaking increases in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation boards, while retaining backwards compatibility and similar power consumption. The Raspberry Pi 4 provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems. The Raspberry Pi 4 comes in three on-board RAM options for even further performance benefits: 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.
This product’s key features include a high-performance 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-display output via two Micro HDMI ports, up to 4K resolution, hardware video decoding at up to 4Kp60, up to 4GB of RAM, dual-band 2.4/5.0 GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PoE capability.
The $119 version comes with 4GB of memory and a Sandisk 32GB MicroSD, cables, keyboard and mouse.
