Raspberry Pi 4

For information, Recalbox IS NOT compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 yet.
Pour information, Recalbox N'EST PAS encore compatible avec le Raspberry Pi 4.

The Recalbox Team.

Raspberry Pi4 released - 3 times the performance.



  • Well, expect a new flood of new "Ive just bought a Raspberry Pi and Recalbox wont install on it" comments everyone, lol.

    Out of the blue, a new Pi has just appeared. Well, 3 new Pi's depending on the memory configuration.
    Looks like Dreamcast, PSP and N64 emulation should, once Recalbox has been re-written to work with it, run significantly better for a lot of previously unplayable games.

    @rustymg holy fuck but well cpu frequency is really disapointing



  • @voljega What a good day to see the rain...

    ...the rain of topics of people asking for pi4 support. kek



  • When the pi3+ came out it was said that a total rewrite of the core was required (I may not have the terminology correct). Are we looking at the same type of rewrite required or will this be something akin to recompiling the code to recognize the new hardware?

    ^^ This is entirely new hardware. Different CPU, Different Ram, etc. And since the Recalbox crew took like a year to make it compatible with the Pi3b+, I don't expect Recalbox to work with the Pi4 for a long, LONG, LOOOOONG time.

    But when 2020 or 2021 rolls around and Recalbox does finally become compatible? I'm sure it'll be amazing!

    Also this claim of the Pi4 being compatible with existing Pi products? Horsecrap! None of the existing Pi3 cases will fit, none of the existing Pi3 software will work, etc.
