The Raspberry Pi is arguably one of the most popular single-board computers in the market. No bigger than a human palm, it is designed and manufactured by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Earlier today, the company launched a new version of the tiny computer. Called the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, it starts at the same $35 (Rs 2,500 approximately) as before. The model comes with a number of internal upgrades, including the support for maximum RAM.

While the older Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ comes with a Quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, the new Raspberry Pi Model B comes with a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 CPU. Clock speed is bumped up from 1.2GHz to 1.4GHz. Unlike previous models, which come with support for only 1GB of RAM that's shared with the GPU, the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B gets support for up to 4GB of RAM. The new model looks identical to the previous model.

According to a press release shared by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the highlights on the new model include the new 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU, up to 4GB RAM support, full-throughput Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.0, Dual-band 802.11ac wireless networking, two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, and dual-monitor support at resolutions up to 4K. The variant that costs the same $35 as before comes with 1GB of RAM. The 2GB and 4GB RAM variants, however, cost $45 (Rs 3,150 approximately) and $55 (Rs 3,820 approximately) respectively. 

Although the new model promises dual-monitor support at resolutions up to 4K, a review published by Tom's Hardware talks about jerky video playback on the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. “My biggest problems involved video playback. If I wanted to watch a YouTube video, I had to keep it in a window, because even in 480p resolution, it was jerky at full screen,” writes Avram Piltch of Tom's Hardware. Like most other Raspberry Pi models, the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is expected to be available in India in the near future.
