The new board features a 2.4GHz quad-core, 64-bit Arm Cortex-A76 CPU, with 512KB L2 caches and a 2MB shared L3 cache, enabling a greatly expanded range of applications, and on-board dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5 connectivity.

The RP1 I/O controller chip, designed in-house at Raspberry Pi, delivers a step change in interfacing performance.

A number of new accessories are available to complement Raspberry Pi 5, including a case with integrated variable-speed fan.

For those who need to use their Raspberry Pi 5 under heavy load without a case, an active cooler provides an alternative cooling solution.

And a new 27W USB-C PD power supply delivers up to 5A of current at 5.1V, enabling the Raspberry Pi 5 to power a wide range of peripherals.

“Raspberry Pi 5 is the single largest engineering programme we’ve ever undertaken, spanning more than half a decade,” says Pi CEO Eben Upton, “we’re hugely excited by the performance of the completed product: a no-compromises Linux desktop computer from just $60. Farnell has been a Raspberry Pi licensee since the launch of the original product in February 2012, and are now our sole licensee: we are delighted to be working with them to bring our latest and most powerful flagship product to a global audience.”

  1. 4GB And 8GB?

    4G and 5G are cell signals?

    • They are just idiots…

      • Yes, idiocy was the right diagnosis
        It was not an attempt at click bait
        The article has been corrected
        – it should have read 4Gbyte and 8Gbyte, not 4G and 5G
        The journalist concerned has been shot

        Thanks to all who pointed out the error
