Very cool. In so many ways.
FOURtress is a super cool RISC OS compact system - cool in how it keeps the
temperature of the Pi low, and cool in how it looks. Rocking an internal fan, it even makes
Linux cool. With its sleek angular metal case, which also acts to dissipate the heat from
the Pi, it looks thoroughly modern. And cool.
FOURtress also features high-performance DDR4 memory, which combined with the
state of the art ARM CPU running as standard at 2.2GHz, all adds up to faster
processing. With more memory — it has 2GB as standard but can be upgraded to
4GB or even 8GB — it is capable of more than you can possibly imagine in RISC OS.
With a combination of a fast micro SD drive and our discreet high capacity, high speed
storage systems, the FOURtress can store all of your necessary apps, and load them in
super quick time. For users with access to disc-intensive applications like new, modern web
browsers, the specially formatted drive allows the FOURtress to load them even faster than
SATA-connected drives on those machines with slower processors.
Unlike cheap USB sticks, the modern m.2 SSD used in the FOURtress is purpose-designed
for reliability as a safer storage medium for your apps, files and documents. You can even
access the files from a different machine, using the file-transfer cable.
The FOURtress can now be upgraded to use industry-standard high speed NVMe drives for
extra zip, especially when using EDOS.
Coupled with the 2.2GHz processor, this all adds up to fast, flexible and flying FOURtress!
Expanding your control.
FOURtress allows easy access to the GPIO ports for managing a range of
controllable devices. If you don’t use the GPIO, use the natty magnetic cover to hide
it out of the way. FOURtress also has three spare USB ports to enable you to add
your favourite peripherals and hard drives. Add a powered USB hub for ultra-
Power to the desktop.
Utilising the flexibility and speed of RISC OS, combined with the processing power and
robust storage, the Pi Hard helps you become a more efficient RISC OS user. Not to
mention 4k resolutions for extreme productivity.
