Raspberry Pi 4 is now also available with 8GB of RAM. In fact, it is always the latest version of the dev board launched last summer, sold in 3 million copies and which already integrates processor and connection improvements compared to the previous generation. In that case, however, the RAM was only available in the 1, 2 and 4GB denominations, to which today the 8 GB one is added.

Prices have also been updated:

  • Raspberry Pi 4 with 2 GB of RAM: price $ 35
  • Raspberry Pi 4 with 4 GB of RAM: price $ 55
  • Raspberry Pi 4 with 8 GB of RAM: price $ 75

Being a product often used by “geek” users or by those who have the desire and the right knowledge to make a low-cost computing platform, the 4GB cut may already be a good choice, but with the debut of this new version, Raspberry wanted to provide an additional option dedicated to an even more demanding user.

The project has slowed down due to the pandemic , which has actually caused the interruption of inductors from Asia. The changes made to better support the new memory cut concerned the repositioning of some components on the board by adding a new switcher alongside the USB-C power connector.

The Raspberry Foundation has simultaneously released an early beta of the 64-bit operating system image (same desktop environment, but compiled based on the Debian arm64 port). Both this and the 32-bit version will from now on be called Raspberry Pi OS.
