How much Pi 4 memory


The Pi 4 is available with 1, 2 and 4GB memory. Is there any reason to choose for more than 1GB? I’m not sure, but from what I have read for the Pi 3, info-beamers uses less than 500MB or something like that?

Indeed. 1GB should be sufficient for most use cases at the moment, although the firmware reserves more GPU memory (512 instead of 256MB) for H265 playback. So that leaves 256MB less for the rest of the system. But that should still be enough from what I’ve seen so far. Normal info-beamer packages are all very light on memory usage.

Thanx for the confirmation.
