The U74 seems to be quite a bit slower than the Cortex A72 used in the Raspberry Pi, also dual core vs quad core, and twice the price for the 4GB. If they want to widen the audience for RISC-V, they why to make the board so expensive?

There's no way they can compete on price at this early stage. The product is for developers and others who see the future of RISC-V and want to start building on it so that when Beagle's RISC-V volumes start to build and prices come down, the foresighted developer will have products in, and experience with, the ecosystem.
