    The folks at Raspberry pi have announced the new RPi 4 model B single board computer, still priced at $35
    for the basic board with 1GB of RAM. Models with 2GB and 4GB of RAM are also available at higher price points.

    Here's the official announcement:

    And here are the specs:

    The processor is now a Broadcom BCM2711 SoC, which has four 1.5GHz Cortex A72 CPU cores.
    That, along with the additional RAM and higher-level graphics support will make the board more suitable
    for full desktop and multimedia uses.

    I've been pretty interested in this: from what it seems the general performance level should be a good boost up from that of even the 3B+. Can't wait to get my hands on one of these to see how it runs. 4GB is going to be a godsend for large compiles I occasionally have to do (ntp, Python 3.8). Maybe I'll actually be able to run a Minecraft server on here without lagging, for once. lol

    Would like to run an SDR on it.
