After months of speculation, the Raspberry Pi Foundation finally released the all new Raspberry Pi 4 to the public! The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B comes surprisingly in 3 different “flavors”, with models that have 1GB, 2GB and 4GB of RAM, and prices varying from $35 on the 1GB model to $55 for the 4GB model.
The Raspberry Pi foundation claims this new version was designed to give you a “complete desktop experience”, however, everyone including your mother knows right now that the Pi is a very powerful little single board computer that can handle classic emulation really well! The previous model, the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, was capable of running PlayStation 1 games at full speed. Although The Pi up to this point has been able to run almost everything from the late 90’s and down, as far as emulation goes, it was not very successful at emulating systems like the Nintendo 64, SEGA Saturn and the Panasonic 3DO, all part of the same generation as the PlayStation 1, so the new Raspberry Pi 4 – specially the 4GB RAM version – is expected to be able to at least improve the emulation of such systems, compared to its older brother.
