The Raspberry Pi Foundation reduced the price of the Raspberry Pi 4-2GB at $ 35 from $ 45, making it the same price as the 1GB version. The price drop was announced by Eben Upton (co-founder of the foundation) shortly before the device's eighth birthday.
“We are reducing the price because of its low prices RAM ” said Upton.
The Raspberry Pi 4 was the first microcomputer to come in 3 different options - 1GB, 2GB and 4GB priced at $ 35, $ 45 and $ 55.
Upton also mentioned that the 1GB version will continue to exist on market, at its original price. However, because they no longer there is difference in price between the first two versions, next, users prefer the 2GB version.
The first Raspberry Pi came on February 19, 2012, and so far over 30 million have been sold computers. These microcomputers are used for thousands of things. Oracle created the largest Pi computer, using a 1060 Raspberry Pi. NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) also used them in the mission to Mars.
From 2012 onwards, we got to know the Raspberry Pi 2, which is quad-core and came on the market in 2015. In 2016 we saw the Pi 3 which supports 64bit architecture, while the Pi 3+ came in 2018. June also came Pi 4, which is intended to replace a normal computer.
"Soon, you'll be able to buy a regular computer at the same price as the 1 Raspberry P2012 U Upton stressed.
The advantages over its first release device is 40 times better CPU performance, 8 times more μνήμη , 10 times faster I / O bandwidth, 4 times more pixels, 2 screens instead of dual-band wireless capability.
Along with Raspberry, there are now hundreds of other similar products on the market that are trying to make a difference to the most popular single-board computer on the market.
