- up to 2x faster performance of CPU apllications than previous CM3 version
- up to 8x more RAM (8GB LPDDR4)
- optional 1Gbit Ethernet interface
- optional PCIe card support for NVMe SSD drive (via M.2)
- optional second PCIe support for wireless modem solutions
First orders will be ready with subject to the availability of the CM4 module itself.
Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 world premiere
Few days ago, Raspberry Foundation announced new member of its family, a Rasbperry Pi Compute Module 4. It’s quite obvious, even from the first look, that the new module is very different from its predecessors. Main difference is a new form factor, leaving DDR2 SODIMM in the past.
The same 64-bit quad-core BCM2711 application processor as in Raspberry Pi 4B, the Compute Module 4 brings higher performance: faster CPU cores, better multimedia, more interfacing capabilities, and, for the first time, a choice of RAM densities and a wireless Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options.
Compute Module 4 comes in 32 variants. Lite, as always, offers no eMMC memory, a and standard versions come with up to 8GB RAM, 32 eMMC Flash and wireless modem.
New features of Compute Module 4
- 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU as in Raspberry Pi 4 version B
- 1GB, 2GB, 4GB or 8GB LPDDR4-3200 SDRAM
- 8GB, 16GB or 32GB eMMC Flash storage for Standard version, Lite version without eMMC
- Optional 2.4GHz and 5GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 5.0
- Single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface
- Gigabit Ethernet PHY with IEEE 1588 support
- Dual HDMI interfaces, at resolutions up to 4K
- 28 GPIO pins, with up to 6 × UART, 6 × I2C and 5 × SPI
