Raspberry Pi Foundation has launched the most powerful Raspberry Pi model ever.

The company first launched the Raspberry Pi 4 last year. At the time of the launch, it was available in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB RAM variants. Now, nearly a year later the company has launched an 8GB RAM variant of the Raspberry Pi 4 at a price of $75 ( 56,70 approximately). This makes the device not only the most powerful but also the costliest Raspberry Pi model ever. It also enables users to use applications that require higher memory to function on the Raspberry Pi 4 powered devices.

Greater memory space is not the only thing that has changed in the newly launched model. The Raspberry Pi foundation says that in addition to the RAM, the power supply components on the board have been shuffled a bit. The switch-mode power supply has been removed from the right-hand side of the board next to the USB 2.0 sockets and a new switcher has been added next to the USB-C power connector.

The company said that it was planning to launch the device almost three months back. However, the pandemic caused some delay in its plans. “While this was a necessary change, it ended up costing us a three-month slip, as COVID-19 disrupted the supply of inductors from the Far East,” the company wrote in a blog post.

In addition to this, the company has also launched the 64-bit version of its operating system system, called the Raspberry Pi OS, in beta. “Both our 32-bit and 64-bit operating system images have a new name: Raspberry Pi OS...We think the new name will help more people feel confident in using our computers and our software,” the company wrote adding that it has also released an update to the Raspberry Pi Desktop details of which will be shared later.
