Hot damn, yes. I was wondering when we would find out about the Pi 4. What's really surprising is this line:

Raspberry Pi says the Pi 4 will remain in production until at least January 2026.
Surprised they plan to keep the Pi 4 in production for 7+ years.

Thanks for posting. It could now be viable for me to recommend for more people. Desperately needed some more ram and faster interconnect. I will have to go through a few reviews.

wonder how soon it will take them to put an M.2 socket on the bottom of the board for integrated storage. :ph34r:
Not before 2026 :haha:. And honestly it would be completely useless on something like this.

It only has a single PCIe 2.0 lane. So 500MB/s max and everything is going to be sharing it. So even if you are only going to get SATA2.0 speeds w/ an SSD its a HUGE improvement over ~20MB/s max like the previous gen boards. And those ones the NIC shared the same bus. So you are downloading from the network, your drive speed takes a hit.


EDIT: Not bad.
