Raspberry Pi’s latest version of their flagship Linux Single-Board Computer (SBC) boasts:
- 2-3x the speed of the Raspberry Pi 4 thanks to a Broadcom BCM2712 quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor running at up to 2.4 GHz and supported by 512 kB per-core L2 caches and a 2 MB shared L3 cache
- 800 MHz VideoCore VII GPU supporting OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan 1.2
- Dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi
- Bluetooth 5.0 and Bluetooth Low Energy
- Gigabit Ethernet, with PoE+ support (via a separate HAT)
- 2x USB 3.0 interfaces at 5 Gbps (in addition to 2x USB 2.0 interfaces)
- Dual 4Kp60 HDMI display output with HDR support
- M.2 interface for connecting an SSD for faster boot and data transfer
- Real-Time Clock (RTC)
- UART debug port
- A soft power button for turning the device on via the board itself
Available in 4- and 8-GB RAM variants, the Raspberry Pi 5 runs on their latest OS, Bookworm, and it is the first flagship board to feature a Raspberry-Pi-developed chip, the RP1. This I/O controller enables a new level of peripheral performance for the Raspberry Pi 5 for more than double the USB bandwidth, a streamlined camera and display interface via a pair of four-lane 1.5 Gbps MIPI transceivers – the camera and display connectors are interchangeable for maximum flexibility (i.e., one or each or two of the same) – and double the microSD card peak performance using SDR104 high-speed mode.
This new architecture also enables a single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface for high-bandwidth peripherals, meaning that the Raspberry Pi 5 can offer even higher performance in industrial and enterprise applications.
For integration with standard HATs, the Raspberry Pi 5 retains the classic 40-pin header, but with a more powerful system, a 5V/5A DC supply via USB-C is recommended to power the board. Due to the active cooling recommendations when in standalone use, the Raspberry Pi 5 case is recommended when developing using this board. Active cooling can be designed into systems integrating this latest SBC from Raspberry Pi.
