Well I have 2 of the new rpi4's with 4GB of Memory on pre-order. This will be nice.

Neat! Really glad they added Gigabit Ethernet.

Are there any benchmarks on the VideoCore VI?

I got my first RPI4 today have the Raspberry Desktop running and am now working on ROS. Happy day's :wink:
(Note. Tried a 1080p monitor, and this board runs way hot even with heat sinks in 4k with 3840 by 2160 or just 1080p.:tongue:
A fan is really needed here)

In theory, the RPi4+4GB is more powerful than my netbook in its default configuration (2-core 1.0GHz/1.33GHz, 4GB, USB2, Fast Ethernet, 802.11n)...

Probably will pick up one of the RPi4+4GB in the next month, or so, to see if I can get anything like my netbook performance with the RPi4 running off SD and/or USB3 thumbdrive.

If it is true that Walmart is going to carry the rpi4, this could be the pi's chance to really shine.:cool:
