The 8GB Raspberry Pi 4 is now available, according to an announcement by Eben Upton on the Raspberry Pi blog. The new, more powerful, Pi 4 is priced at $75.
The 8GB Raspberry Pi 4 features slightly rearranged components. According to Upton, this change was made in order to supply the higher peak currents required by the new board and involved “removing a switch-mode power supply from the right-hand side of the board next to the USB 2.0 sockets and adding a new switcher next to the USB-C power connector.”
The company has also released an early beta of its 64-bit operating system image. According to the announcement, the new 64-bit image contains the same applications and desktop environment found in their regular 32-bit image, but it’s built against the Debian arm64 port. Additionally, both the 32-bit and 64-bit operating system images will be renamed to Raspberry Pi OS.
