Today the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced the brand new Raspberry Pi 4 which still starts at just $35! The linked announcement post goes into more detail, but some notable upgrades are:
- Optional 2GB and 4GB RAM configurations
- Gigabit ethernet that does not share bandwidth with the USB hub
- Faster 1.5 GHz processor on a new 28nm process
- Dual monitor support at resolutions up to 4k
I'm particularly jazzed about the optional higher RAM configurations and gigabit ethernet. I'm tempted to swap out some of the worker nodes in my toy Raspberry Pi based Kubernetes cluster cause 1GB just isn't enough to run anything meaningful on top of what the OS and kubelets need to function. Also with that gigabit ethernet I feel like I could actually build a pretty decent NAS now with one of these.
What would you do with a Raspberry Pi 4?
