The MagPi — Issue 83

Introducing Raspberry Pi 4.

With up to 4GB RAM, a faster 1.5GHz ARM CPU, dual 4K HDMI support, faster USB 3.0 connections, and Gigabit Ethernet, Raspberry Pi 4 is a generational leap forward.

In this extra-special edition of The MagPi, we have a huge 12-page feature examining every aspect of Raspberry Pi 4. Benchmark tests show a vast increase in performance, all thanks those improved specs (which we cover in-depth). We’ve also got an interview with Eben Upton on the making of Raspberry Pi 4, plus Simon Long talks about Raspbian ‘Buster’, the all-new version of the OS that powers Raspberry Pi.
