The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, the fastest one yet will apparently give you desktop performance that’s comparable to entry level x86 PC systems. The board is built around a Broadcom BCM2711 SoC with four 1.5GHz Cortex A72 CPU cores and RAM options are higher coming in configurations of 1GB, 2GB and 4GB of DDR4.
The I/O sees some upgrades as well. Now with two USB 3.0
ports and power supplied via USB-C for the modern day and age. Ethernet, headphone
jack and composite video. It also has two micro HDMI ports instead of the one
and will support two 4k monitors. The Pi 4 will be powered by a lot of
multimedia support to get to running two 4K monitors with.
Here are the highlights of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B
A 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU (~3×
1GB, 2GB, or 4GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM
