Version 4

     

    Introducing the new addition to the Raspberry Pi 4 line, The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8GB.

     

    This revision of the ever popular Raspberry Pi will be a welcome addition to most serious or even casual users.

    It has the same physical footprint as the other Raspberry Pi 4 range, with some slight changes to the PCB, and TWICE the ram as the previous most powerful, 4GB, unit.

    Users of the Raspberry Pi 4 have been crying out for more power and the Raspberry Pi Foundation has heard their call. This 8GB Raspberry Pi will give you the RAM headroom to open more chrome tabs and give your applications way more wiggle room.  This welcome upgrade will really help people use the Raspberry Pi 4 as a day to day computer.

    The New Raspberry Pi 4 8GB

    The Board that should not have existed.

    Some of you may remember that when the initial versions of the Raspberry Pi 4 launched, the Compliance leaflet mentioned a 8GB Variant, to which all hopes were quickly squashed as a typo.
    To quote Eben Upton:

    While we launched with 1GB, 2GB and 4GB variants, even at that point we had our eye on the possibility of an 8GB Raspberry Pi 4. We were so enthusiastic about the idea that the non-existent product made its way into both the Beginner’s Guide and the compliance leaflet.

    The BCM2711 chip that we use on Raspberry Pi 4 can address up to 16GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM, so the real barrier to our offering a larger-memory variant was the lack of an 8GB LPDDR4 package. These didn’t exist (at least in a form that we could address) in 2019, but happily our partners at Micron stepped up earlier this year with a suitable part. And so, today, we’re delighted to announce the immediate availability of the 8GB Raspberry Pi 4, priced at just $75.

     

    How to Identify your Raspberry Pi 4 8GB

     

    To Identify the amount of ram on your Raspberry Pi 4 you simply need to have a look at the numbers written on the RAM Chip and match them to this handy guide:

     

    1GB - 4HBMGCJ

    2GB - D9WHZ

    4GB - D9WHV

    8GB - D9ZCL

    Raspberry Pi 4 8GB PCB Changes

     

    As we spotted in our unboxing video the Raspberry Pi 4 8GB has some PCB changes that help out the new beefier memory package.

    James at the Raspberry Pi Foundation has shuffled the power supply components around the board, removing a switch-mode power supply from the right-hand side of the board next to the USB 2.0 sockets and adding a new switcher next to the USB-C power connnector.

     

    In addition to the changes in power supply components the Raspberry Pi 4 8GB has had some changes to the silkscreen on the back.

    Will my old case fit the New Raspberry Pi 4?

    Fairly unlikely that your pre-raspberry pi 4 case will fit and if it does It likely wont have I/O holes in the right places for the new Micro HDMI, USB 3, USB C and Ethernet, but any case made for any version of the Raspberry Pi 4 will fit.

     

    Will I need a new charger for the Raspberry Pi 4?

    Yes. This one swap is the greatest positive, you are now less constrained and less likely to get "Brown Outs" caused by power hungry peripherals.

     

    Will my GPIO Hat work on the new Raspberry Pi?

    Very Likely! The Raspberry Pi 40Pin GPIO is built to be backwards compatible! You can double-check this here: Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Default GPIO Pinout with PoE Header

     

    Will I need a new version of the PoE hat?

    No, the PoE HAT designed for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B.
