The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Computer is the first model to use a 28nm SoC. It features a quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 64-bit processor clocked at 1.5GHz, making it run up to three times faster than its predecessor. Two micro HDMI ports support dual-display output at resolutions up to 4K. For connectivity, the board’s new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 delivers faster transfer rates to mass-storage devices (up to 5 Gbps). True Gigabit Ethernet connectivity delivers network data rates of up to 1 Gbps and dual-band wireless networking at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz supports real-world data rates in excess of 100 Mbps. Modular compliance certification allows the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.
The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B comes with 1GB, 2GB and 4GB LPDDR4 memory options, a standard 40-pin GPIO header with full backward compatibility, and additional multiplexed UART, I2C and SPI peripherals, and a Micro SD card slot for loading operating system and data storage. It supports H.265 decode (4kp60), H.264 decode (1080p60) and H.264 encode (1080p30); OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics; and an image sensor pipeline. Power over Ethernet is supported too using a separate HAT accessory. The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Computer will remain in production until at least January 2026. Also available alongside the Raspberry Pi 4 Computer is a brand-new case and a range of accessories including power supplies and micro HDMI cables.
