The new Raspberry Pi 4

Max2Play is now offering the new Raspberry Pi 4B in the 4 GB RAM version! We have collected all pertinent information here, to help you decide whether this new Raspberry Pi is the best choice for your setup.

As the name suggests, this is the successor to the popular Raspberry Pi 3 which we have been using as our standard for all bundles for a few years now. To find out what has changed and what has stayed the same, check out the technical specifications and breakdown of all the changes below.

New Models

The new Raspberry Pi 4 is available in three different versions with different RAM. We currently offer the 4GB model.

1Gb

2Gb

Improved Interfaces

In addition to two USB-2 ports, you now also have two USB-3 ports that can transfer data up to 10 times faster.

Instead of the predecessor's HDMI port, the Raspberry Pi 4 has two micro HDMI ports, supporting up to two 4k displays.

More Power

The Raspberry Pi 4 now has a USB-C port for power supply. To properly operate the Pi, a 15W power supply is needed.

With the 4-Core Broadcom BCM2711 the processor performance is increased to 1.5Ghz.
