Raspberry Pi 5

Raspberry Pi

The powerful new Raspberry Pi 5 is available to pre-order right now.

Although similar in looks to its predecessors there is an in-house designed RP1 I/O controller chip.

This silicon supports USB 3 for more total bandwidth and much faster transfer speeds. Plus the Camera and DSI display connectors are interchangeable, so you can have one of each, or two the same.

Of course, there is also a powerful new processor, a Broadcom BCM2712 quad-core Arm Cortex A76 processor running 2.4GHz. Which means it is 3 times faster than the previous generation. And it supports up to 8GB of RAM.

Other features include a dedicated power button and support for two 4K HDMI 60Hz displays.

Here's a quick summary of the key features:

• Broadcom BCM2712 2.4GHz quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A76 CPU
• VideoCore VII GPU, supporting OpenGL ES 3.1, Vulkan 1.2
• Dual 4Kp60 HDMI® display output with HDR support
• 4Kp60 HEVC decoder
• LPDDR4X-4267 SDRAM (4GB and 8GB versions at launch)
• Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi®
• Bluetooth 5.0 / Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
• microSD card slot, with support for high-speed SDR104 mode
• 2 × USB 3.0 ports, supporting simultaneous 5Gbps operation
• 2 × USB 2.0 ports
• Gigabit Ethernet, with PoE+ support (via separate PoE+ HAT)
• 2 × 4-lane MIPI camera/display transceivers
• PCIe 2.0 x1 interface for fast peripherals
• 5V/5A DC power via USB-C, with Power Delivery support
• Raspberry Pi standard 40-pin header
• Real-time clock (RTC), powered from external battery
• Power button
