Nice! The 3B+ was almost fast enough for a basic desktop, if this is 2-4X faster maybe it will be usable as a low end desktop. 

 

Review here. Benchmarks say it's more like 50 - 150% faster, which is a huge gain.

Definitely! That'll be awesome for media centers.

Read the Pi4 review on Toms Hardware. While the specs are heaps better it looks like it won’t be mainstream for a while - due to the lack of software optimisation and cases (old ones don’t fit).

Was quite surprised at the video playback issues.

So the rumours were true! It briefly appeared on the Risc OS Open website last week when they checked some drivers into source control, then vanished as soon as they realised what had happened 😛

Pity there's no SATA support, but it sounds like they've got rid of some of the bottlenecks!

35€, 45€ and 55€ but for the latter mentioned prices the 2GB and 4GB RAM versions aren't available yet ... very happy it got real 1GB/s eth and two USB 3.0





No backup, no pity. Anyway, RAID isn't one.

Please note that this product is not in stock...

 

With stock are the key words.

Nice.

 

I'm going to try and contain my enthusiasm and give it a while for the software side of things to catch up before jumping in.

 

I'm sure most the major open source projects will quickly start optimizing for the Pi4.

 

4K output is great. The next obvious questions from a home build media centre perspective will be whether that includes HDR and whether it can bitstream Atmos/DTS-HD.

 

I guess time will tell.

HDR h/w capability is confirmed.

It will be very interesting to see how well the 4GB model works as a low-end desktop replacement.
