The VC5 used in set top box chip does 4K, likely it will address more than 1GB.
The videocore has been updated - cost of $20M was one figure.
But since 4K is were STB's are then BCM would have paid this cost.
Adding the stuff RPF needs, camera, CSI, LCD DSI, bigger cpu's. $$$$ for RPF
The word is the roadmap has really really cool and surprising stuff on it.
VC5 plus 64 bit cpus across the range Zero to 4?
Pink Fuffy Unicorns and Pi's go together.
Dates of release probably now depend on manufacturing ramping up and the software working/ported.
Pink, purple, black PCBs? We have had green, red, blue so far. Why not the full rainbow
It has all been spoken about before, over and over again.
The one new thing we know, there is V5 in silicon, that is great news.
We know Eben had a hand in designing the VC5, would BCM listen to his input?
Has anyone noticed Eben has been a bit absent in the news last 6 months or so?
New baby will do that, but has he been spending some of that time in the RPF Skunkworks?
Clues of the future here?

Probably means the Pi4 will be keeping the same footprint.
Old interviews with Eben about Pi's on the Desktop, hints too?
That is a game changer, especially if it can play games.
Vulkan will probably work on VC5, could it be back ported to VC4.
VR headset with a Pi in it? Mini Steam Box, Roblox on Pi.
Gaming on Set top boxes? Stepping into Unicorn territory?
I'm dancing on Rainbows.
