  • I don't think the 8 gig Pi4 will have anything in particular over the 4 gig, or probably even the 2 gig, when it comes to retro gaming. I only briefly looked at it but it looks like the same form factor.

    I still consider the Pi4 software to be experimental and recommend Pi3B+ for the best experience. I've been unseasonably busy lately so haven't had much time to look at the software further. Not sure if the 8 gig Pi4 will boot on the current ARpiCADE 4.0 release as I don't have one to try (and 4.0 is older than the 8gig hardware), it may require a firmware update or something similar to function.

    At this time I don't plan to release a new hardware version for the Pi4, it works fine with existing RaspberryJAMMAs. The only real gotcha is the change to micro HDMI but a simple adaptor can fix that...

    • I've been following the Pi4 a bit and it seems until the drivers that allow the graphics chip's hardware acceleration to be used are available there's not really much reason to move to it.

        I would gave thought that moving to a 64bit OS would be beneficial, and assuming the extra ram would help.

        Might not be now, but I look forward when further developments are made with the hardware. Hopefully sooner than later
