This Raspberry Pi 4 has 8GB RAM, a faster quad-core CPU, support for dual displays at up to 4K resolution, Gigabit Ethernet, USB3.0, wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB-C power. That’s desktop PC performance!
- Broadcom BCM2711, quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1. 5GHz- LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM
- 2. 4 GHz and 5. 0 GHz IEEE 802. 11B/g/n/ac Wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5. 0, double-true Gigabit Ethernet
- 2 Ã USB 3. 0 ports, 2 x USB 2. 0 Ports—2 Ã micro HDMI ports supporting up to 4Kp60 video resolution
- 2-lane MIPI DSI/CSI ports for camera and display–4-pole stereo audio and composite video port-
- Micro SD card slot for loading operating system and data storage
- Requires 5. 1V, 3a power via USB Type C or gpio-poep (power over Ethernet) enabled (requires PoE hat-not included)
The overall form factor remains the same, so you’ll still be able to use HATs and pHATs as before.

The faster 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU on the Raspberry Pi 4’s Cortex A72 SoC, coupled with the up to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM gives performance comparable to entry-level x86 desktop PCs.
The Raspberry Pi 4 moves to USB-C power meaning that you’ll need a new USB-C power supply that can supply 5V at 3A.
Significantly faster IO
The Raspberry Pi 4 has two USB 3.0 ports, for up to 10x faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0, perfect for connecting fast peripherals like SSDs and flash drives. There are also two USB 2.0 ports for connecting less speed-dependent peripherals like keyboards and mice.
The ethernet jack on the Raspberry Pi 4 moves to true gigabit speed, for super-speedy wired networking and, as with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, there’s Power-over-Ethernet capability too (requires additional Raspberry Pi PoE HAT).
4Kdisplay support, dual micro-HDMI
There are dual micro-HDMI ports that support up to 4Kp60, to use your Raspberry Pi 4with much larger displays with crisp, sharp, high resolution.
For the first time, you’ll be able to use dual HDMI displays with the Raspberry Pi.
Bluetooth 5.0 and wireless LAN
The new chipset supports Bluetooth 5.0 (from 4.2 on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+) and also dual-band802.11 b/g/n/ac wireless LAN, like the previous generation Raspberry Pi, for quick wireless networking with less interference and better reception.
