There's a new version of Raspberry Pi OS that rolled out earlier this week, and with it comes an upgraded foundation to Debian 11, otherwise known as Bullseye (named after Woody's horse in Toy Story 2). It brings quite a few under-the-hood goodies, but the biggest reason to upgrade is a feature that slipped under the... Read more...
2021 hasn't been kind to those in any industry that relies of computer chips of any kind to operate, and that stands true for the team at Raspberry Pi. No one has escaped the laundry list of issues that plague the semiconductor shortage, and it is with a solemn post by Eben Upton of Raspberry Pi that the company... Read more...
We're suckers for intriguing single-board PCs here at HotHardware, and a new entry just scurried past our news desk. Built by Commell,  the LE-370 draws attention due to the amount of power it offers and the features that it packs into a relatively small footprint. For starters, the LE-370 forgoes a miserly Arm-based... Read more...
Many competitors to the Raspberry Pi family of single-board PCs have come and gone with varying levels of success. Pine64’s latest entry in this arena is now available for sale, and it’s called the Quartz64. The Quartz64 uses a Rockchip RK3566 SoC, a quad-core design that pairs an Arm Cortex-A55 CPU with a Mali-G52... Read more...
Whether it's playing Duck Hunt on the NES with a Zapper or pumping quarters into Area 51 or Time Crisis in arcades, just about everyone is familiar with light gun games. The simplicity of these games is born from their "on-rails" design where players are automatically taken from area to area, and then just point and... Read more...
We have seen many cool projects arising from Raspberry Pi boards and other similar SBCs (single-board computers). One that ranks right up there with the best of them is an internet-controlled RC car, by the same person who in December posted a Raspberry Pi 4 mod to stream Nintendo Switch games in real-time over the...

The fine folks over at Pine64 this week posted their February Update to give us a heads up on where it stands with current and future products. There was a lot to unpack with this latest update, but one product that really caught our attention is the Quartz64 single board computer (SBC).  Although it's currently... Read more...
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you paired a Raspberry Pi 4 board with an HDMI capture card and a Nintendo Switch? Nothing, really. But sprinkle in some clever coding and an Adafruit Trinket M0, and you end up with a nifty project that allows anyone to play hosted games in real-time, over the internet. At... Read more...
For the past two weeks the world has been buzzing about Cyberpunk 2077; after all, it is perhaps the most highly anticipated game of the year. While owners of previous generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have been highly disappointed in how the game turned out, those running next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X... Read more...
Aw, would you like at that, how adorable! I'm talking about the teeny-tiny case fan the Raspberry Pi Foundation has released for its Raspberry Pi 4 mini PC module. It is more of an cooling kit, actually, as it also comes with an aluminum (I presume it is aluminum, anyway) heatsink to attach onto the Raspberry Pi 4's... Read more...
After a relatively quiet first year of existence, it seems like you can barely swing a cat without running into a new operating system distribution for the Raspberry Pi 4. Raspbian Buster has been around since the beginning, but last weekend Canonical announced a version of Ubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla desktop for the... Read more...
For many, Ubuntu is the go-to distribution for a Linux desktop. Sure, there are a host of other distributions, some of which like Linux Mint are themselves based on Ubuntu. Thanks to pre-built systems like Dell's XPS 13 Developer Edition, Ubuntu has a lot of mindshare. That hasn't been the case on single-board... Read more...
Do you know what makes a pie better? More filling, of course! The same concept applies to the Raspberry Pi, only in this case, instead of adding more blueberries or strawberries or whatever your filling of choice might be, the Raspberry Pi Foundation beefed up its latest Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with double the amount...

Rather than go stir crazy while social distancing, some people are busying themselves with fun and unique projects involving the Raspberry Pi. Eben Kouao is one of those folks. He took a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (2GB) and built himself a smart mirror, which is exactly what it sounds like—a mirror with smart capabilities... Read more...
There is absolutely no reason to buy a Raspberry Pi 4 mini PC with 1GB of RAM. Zip. Zilch. Nada. However, there are plenty of reasons to buy a Raspberry Pi 4 model with 2GB of RAM, because the good folks at the Raspberry Pi Foundation dropped the price to $35, the same as what the 1GB model costs, in celebration of...

The Raspberry Pi 4 is one of the cheapest single-board computers around, and thanks to its substantial performance boost over its predecessors, it also represents a good bang for the buck if you're interested in learning Linux, or just want to kick back and play some of your favorite retro games in Lakka. The good... Read more...
Back in June, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced their newest single-board computer, the Raspberry Pi 4. This tiny PC packs a quad-core Cortex A72 SoC from Broadcom and up to 4 GB of DDR4 memory at a very attractive price. While aimed at emerging markets for folks new to computers, the Pi really caught on with... Read more...
When it comes to single-board PCs, the Raspberry Pi is by far the most popular device on the market, and has found uses in a number of different market sectors. However, there are also plenty of competitors out there that try to compete with the Raspberry Pi on price, or outdo it with regards to outright... Read more...
The Raspberry Pi 4 launched just a few months ago in late June, and represented the most powerful extension of the single-board PC concept to-date. The performance of the quad-core Broadcom BCM2711 Cortex-A72 SoC means that users can expect an increase in heat generated; especially when the system is... Read more...
Pine64 has made a name for itself by producing single-board PCs that are competitive with the incredibly Raspberry Pi family. Single-board PCs are well-known not only for their relatively affordable prices, but also their versatility when it comes to empowering new form-factors. Pine64's latest venture is with what...

It is often said that big things come in small packages, and in the early going, that appears to be the case with the Raspberry Pi 4. Some new benchmarks show the latest Raspberry Pi iteration performing really well, especially compared to the previous generation Raspberry Pi 3. While we have yet to spend any hands on...

In addition to pulling a new Raspberry Pi 4 from the oven, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has cooked up a brand new version of its Raspberry Pi operating system, called Raspbian Buster. As the name implies, it is based on Buster, the latest version of Debian Linux (and named after the actual dog in Pixar's Toy Story... Read more...
