As usual, I'll wait 2-3 months to let the dust settle.

They slightly changed the layout. New cases need to become available.

Usually it takes a while to get the issues under control. Usually even more then 2-3 months.

...then all the audio OSes need to adapt properly.


I'll probably get onboard around September.

Wow, they kept that under wraps pretty well. Had not heard of an imminent release of the Pi 4, but am definitely excited about it.

The increase in processing power, available RAM (1, 2,and 4 GB options now exist!) splitting of USB and ethernet, etc. will all make this very competitive with other ARM based SBCs and even with some low end (e.g. Kaby Lake, Gemini Lake) Intel based mini-PCs.

Allowing some time for things to shake out and the Debian Buster based OS to become available is not a bad idea, but why wait? Start having fun now!

I found some benchmarks run on the Pi 4, that compare it to previous Pi versions, here:

Thanks, interesting article.
The A72 core and separating ethernet and usb (finally) appear to make a big difference in speed.

I expect heatsink companies to start working on thermal solutions, looks like you can't throw on a little heatsink and put in a small case anymore.
