The Raspberry Pi Foundation has doubled the maximum amount of RAM available from the Raspberry Pi 4 to 8GB with a new device that sells for $ 75. To take advantage of the increased RAM, the base also releases a new 64-bit version of its app at early beta. The new Raspberry Pi 4 is a bit different from the device announced in June last year, which means it has the same ARU-based CPU, as well as HDMI, USB 3, and Ethernet ports.
8GB is maximum RAM considering Raspberry Pi size and price. It’s the same with most flagship smartphones released this year, and they are adequate with the entry level PC. The Raspberry Pi Foundation says that extra memory should be useful for assembling large pieces of software, using heavy server loads, or perhaps just opening multiple browser tabs open at the same time. We are confident that it will not be long before the community comes to spend many exciting things.
To take full advantage of the increased RAM values, the base is also rolling out a 64 version of its Raspbian operating system in the original beta, renamed the Raspberry Pi OS. The Linux-based application currently uses a 32 kernel, which means it can’t fully use 8GB of RAM. If you can’t deploy beta software, then there are 64 other OS-bit ones available on Pi 4 such as Ubuntu and Gentoo.
Along with the new 8GB model, the Raspberry Pi 4 is available with 4GB and 2GB of RAM for $ 55 and $ 35, respectively.
