Raspberry Pi, the popular single-board computer, has released its latest model, Raspberry Pi 5, marking the first full-size computer from the brand to use its own in-house built silicon. This new model offers a significant improvement in performance compared to its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi 4. It features a 2.4GHz quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A76 CPU, with double or triple the CPU performance of the previous model, along with enhanced graphics capabilities powered by an 800MHz VideoCore VII GPU.
The Raspberry Pi 5 comes with dual HDMI ports that support 4K display output at frame rates of up to 60 fps, as well as HDR support. It also features advanced camera support with a rearchitected Raspberry Pi Image Signal Processor. Additionally, the device has increased USB bandwidth for faster transfer speeds, improved compatibility for handling multiple cameras and displays, doubled the peak SD card performance, and added support for high-bandwidth peripherals.
Enthusiasts can expect the Raspberry Pi 5 to be available for purchase before the end of October, with production continuing until January 2035. The 4GB variant of the Raspberry Pi 5 will be priced at $60, while the 8GB version will be available for $80. This release marks a significant upgrade for Raspberry Pi, offering improved performance and features to cater to the growing demands of its users.
