Can I run a zkEVM (Zero-Knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine) node on a low-power device like Raspberry Pi with 4GB of RAM?

There are two why I wouldn't recommend a Raspberry Pi for running a zkEVM node:

- The zkEVM Node has a minimum recommended requirement of 16GB RAM with a 4 Core CPU. 

- some optimizations on the zkProver require specific Intel instructions. I would recommend an x86 processor. (AMD and non-M1 macbooks will face a similar issue)
