    Suddenly the RPi looks like a very nice low power NAS board, now that it has gigabit ethernet and USB 3.

    That performance and IO that the RPi is providing now is insane at an excellent price, might nab a 2GB model to upgrade the home theater.

    The power requirements are going to make it interesting for trying to run it off batteries

    Heard about this at 7am, order for a 4GB version was put in by 7:30

    Power requirements don't seem that much worse than the Pi3 which was already quite power hungry, this seems to have a USB-C connector to cope with plugging in USB peripherals.

    a 3gb model as well ?? where did that (typo) spring from ..
    Very interesting .. would make a very nice NAS /HTPC .. if somebody ported Open source Xpenology onto it. Will w10 still run on this? Or does W10 on ARm need updating .
    ISnt the USB-c for powerig the device ?

    Can think of much better boards for use in NAS boxes...
    Mine runs off an Atom board for example with 4 x sata ports which cost less than a Rasp Pi

    I've obviously seen these mentioned on here and other places a few times, what do people actually use them for?

    That's a little naughty - No new PI was due this year: https://www.tomshardware.co.uk/raspberry-pi-4-everything-we-know,news-59876.html

    Almost bought a 3 last week based off that statement (and I read it elsewhere). Glad I didn't now!

    Anywhere that you might think "it would be nice to have a computer controlling that, but it is too expensive/power hungry".

    I have one running Octopi to serve files to my 3D printer, monitor it and make timelapse video recordings of prints.
    Companies I have worked at used them to drive status displays on wall mounted TVs, so having two outputs is pretty good for that.

    USB can be daisy chained. Spinning rust won't saturate a USB3 link on its own.

    But won't the Random IO be awful because of the latency and Queue depth being tosh?

    If you are that serious about NAS you probably want a Ryzen or carefully chose Pentium board for the ECC ram and a big ZFS SATA array as the price of the CPU will be dwarfed by the cost of storage.

    But if you want to run eg a Minecraft server, a cheap SSD on a USB to SATA interface might do nicely on one of these Pi boards.


    Interesting that it sounds like these are no longer compatible with existing Rasbian images. That's actually quite cool, as that compatibility with the original Pi was really holding the platform back. It does sound like the original Pi can boot the new Pi4 compatible images though, so it looks like they haven't adopted 64 bit yet.
