    Raspberry Pi 4 Features Broadcom BCM2711 Processor, Up to 4GB RAM

    "
    Long expected, the Raspberry Pi 4 model B has finally launched, and it should not disappoint with a much more powerful Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core Cortex-A72 processor clocked at up to 1.5 GHz, 1 to 4GB LPDDR4, 4K H.265 video decoding and output support, a proper Gigabit Ethernet port, as well as USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports.

    Raspberry Pi 4 comes with all those extra features, but the form factor remains the same, and importantly the price is still $35 for the version with 1GB RAM, making Raspberry Pi alternatives suddenly much less interesting. "

    Ordered one of these earlier today, no idea what I am going to do with it :rotfl:

    My hope long term is that PGenerator (TV Pattern Generator) is updated to send a HDR signal, atm i need to use a Linker


    cheers

    You are going to need a good heatsink and fan.

    INMO let others be the lab rats. The RK3399, S922X, A311D eat it for lunch.

    Bad Pi

    Raspberry Pi used to steal data from Nasa lab

    "
    A tiny Raspberry Pi computer has been used to steal data from Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the space agency has revealed.

    An audit report reveals the gadget was used to take about 500MB of data.

    It said two of the files that were taken dealt with the international transfer of restricted military and space technology.

    The attacker who used the device to hack the network went undetected for about 10 months.

    No devs have made a patch generator which has bit perfect RGB output for these other boxes

    Works very well with calMAN, HFCR etc....

    PGenerator Test Patch Generator

    Only downside is I need to use a HDFury Linker to inject the HDR metadata which is a bit of a faff

    Will consider a heatsink but I have had no issues with my pi3 and a few videos show similar power consumption under load with the bonus the new pi cpu is using a smaller process.

    I have no intention to use it as a main media player although I may install libreelec to have a little play

    cheers

    Just seen this on an IET email. Hmm do i need a 3rd pi? If someone can get rasplex working on this then I might be tempted to replace one of my existing ones. Unless i can use it as a plex server to take the strain off my nas.

    Thinking of buying one of these and using it as a media server with a HDD connected to my router. Is this feasible? Is the pi 4 good enough for such a job? It's mainly 1080p streaming. Just have doubts about encoding etc.
