It currently accompanies up to 4GB of RAM multiple times that of any past Pi, a quicker CPU and GPU, quicker Ethernet, double band Wi-Fi, double the measure of HDMI yields, and two USB 3 ports.

These overhauls imply that the Raspberry Pi 4 is usable as work area PC trade on the off chance that you pick its most costly 4GB model. Tom’s Hardware’s audit takes note of that the equipment can deal with numerous regular assignments, for example, web perusing with up to 15 Chromium tabs, light picture altering utilizing GIMP, and archive and spreadsheet work utilizing Libre Office. Obviously, the sub-$100 smaller than expected PC has its breaking points. It purportedly battles with full screen video playback from YouTube for instance, regardless of whether you turn down the goals to 480p.
