 +===== Slackware ARM on a Raspberry Pi 4 =====
 +The Raspberry Pi 4 was released on 24 June 2019. The device features a Broadcom BCM2711B0 SoC incorporating a Quad-core ARMv8 Cortex-A72 [64 bit] CPU @ 1.5GHz, VideoCore VI GPU @ 500MHz, and comes in three different variations with 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB LPDDR4 SDRAM @ 2400MHz installed. This revised and upgraded ARM single-board computer succeeds the [[howtos:​hardware:​arm:​raspberrypi3|Raspberry Pi (3)]], and is approx. 2.5 times faster and certainly more powerful. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are included on-board. It has true Gigabit Ethernet that has a dedicated controller, which is not shared with the USB bus any more. The device also features 2x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0 ports. Still no RTC though. Slackware ARM runs flawlessly on this device, as you would expect. The desktop is so much faster and responsive. Compile times are halved compared to the RPi3.
 +The Raspberry Pi is supported outside of the official Slackware ARM tree by the Slackware community.
 +==== Slackware releases 14.2, -current ====
 +Slackware ARM can be installed on the Raspberry Pi 4.
