Raspberry Pi 4

  • This new Raspberry PI ARM board seems to meet many of our "must-have" features for a good desktop experience:

    • Broadcom BCM2711, Quad core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz
    • Network:
      • 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz IEEE 802.11ac wireless,
      • Bluetooth 5.0, BLE
      • Gigabit Ethernet
    • four USB ports
      • two USB 3.0 ports;
      • two USB 2.0 ports.
    • Raspberry Pi standard 40 pin GPIO header (fully backwards compatible with previous boards)
    • 2 × micro-HDMI ports (up to 4kp60 supported)
    • 2-lane MIPI DSI display port
    • 2-lane MIPI CSI camera port
    • 4-pole stereo audio and composite video port
    • H.265 (4kp60 decode), H264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode)
    • OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics
    • Micro-SD card slot for loading operating system and data storage (MicroSD not included)
    • 5V DC via USB-C connector (minimum 3A*, power supply not included)
    • 5V DC via GPIO header (minimum 3A* power supply not included))
    • Power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled (requires separate PoE HAT)
    • Operating temperature: 0 – 50 degrees C ambient
    • you can choose between three models:
      • 1 GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM (37,57€)
      • 2 GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM (48€)
      • 4 GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM (59€)

    I suspect this board could be The reference non-phone ARM device for our loved UT .

    I was reading the other day that they've sold over 120 million boards. I am surprised that nobody either from the Pi community or our community has got it going... but then, I guess it's no easy matter.

    hmm, things seemed to be stalled, maybe you can motivate the people here 😉

  • @Flohack I don't have to motivate the people.


    I don't think you can look in his eyes and say to him "no" 😛

  • @Flohack I was wondering if the work on the Pine board will help with getting UT on the Pi?

  • Infrastructure

    @3arn0wl Actually we hoped to have it the other way round, but now, yes, it might help 😉
