The BCM2711 chip that we use on Raspberry Pi 4 can address up to 16GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM, so the real barrier to our offering a larger-memory variant was the lack of an 8GB LPDDR4 package. These didn’t exist (at least in a form that we could address) in 2019, but happily our partners at Micron stepped up earlier this year with a suitable part. And so, today, we’re delighted to announce the immediate availability of the 8GB Raspberry Pi 4, priced at just $75.

And to exploit 8GB of RAM, the venerable Raspbian has received a 64-bit treatment and has been renaned at the same time in Raspberry Pi OS. A beta version of Raspberry Pi OS 64-bit is available here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=117&t=275370
