raspberry pi 4 portotype review

Recommended Posts

Erm - no....

 

Someone is playing games here - the chip count alone on the BOM suggests not.... they need to hit $35 APS, which considering BOM and GOGS, this board is not an RPI4...

RPI4 - likely VC5 with 2 or 4 Broadcom B53 cores - USB3 and 4K might be nice, and USB3 gives Gigabit Ethernet. VC5 does extend the addressable memory space, so maybe 2G (would be nice)

 

Just IMHO...

So obviously it's a "joke" video.  April 1st.

 

So, what board is it, really?  The image in the video is mirrored from the real board (look at the chip labels - he printed the "Raspberry Pi 4" label backwards to compensate).  I think it's an Orange Pi 2+, hacked up a bit...

Please - no more RPI bashing.  For a group that has no intention of supporting it, we sure do spend a LOT of time talking about it.

 

What do they they say in marketing:  "Any PR is good PR !".

Shhht! You are not supposed to say it... until April 2, of course! ;)

 

Just a little bit of trolling of the RPi people by MickMake and I don't think they really mind it. BTW the video had 23k+ views.
