    Raspberry Pi 5 4GB Board

    Manufacturer: Raspberry Pi
    Featuring a 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor running at 2.4GHz, Raspberry Pi 5 delivers a 2-3x increase in CPU performance relative to Raspberry Pi 4! Raspberry Pi 5 also brings with it a huge list of great new features and improvements, making this the best Raspberry Pi yet!

    2-3x CPU performance increase
    The new 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor at the heart of Raspberry Pi 5 runs at 2.4GHz with cryptography extensions, 512KB per-core L2 caches and a 2MB shared L3 cache. This new Broadcom BCM2712 SoC (System on Chip) provides a 2-3x increase in performance over the previous generation of Raspberry Pi!

    Improved graphics performance with dual 4Kp60 display output
    Raspberry Pi 5 delivers a substantial uplift in graphics performance from the 800MHz VideoCore VII GPU, connected to the BCM2712 via PCI Express. This allows Raspberry Pi 5 to offer full dual 4Kp60 display output via micro HDMI. These performance improvements provide a smooth desktop experience whilst browsing the internet and streaming videos.

    Enhanced I/O capabilities including PCI-E!
    For the first time, this is a full-size Raspberry Pi computer using silicon built in-house at Raspberry Pi. The RP1 "southbridge" provides the bulk of the I/O capabilities for Raspberry Pi 5, and delivers a step change in peripheral performance and functionality.
  • Aggregate USB bandwidth is more than doubled, yielding faster transfer speeds to external UAS drives and other high-speed peripherals
  • Peak MicroSD card performance is doubled, through support for the SDR104 high-speed mode
  • Single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface, providing support for high-bandwidth peripherals.

  • Power button (finally!)
    Makers and enthusiasts have been asking for a dedicated onboard power button on the Raspberry Pi for as long as we can remember - and Raspberry Pi 5 finally delivers this much-requested convenience!

    Real-time clock (RTC)
    A real-time clock (RTC) is built into the board, allowing you to maintain time/date information even when you power off or aren't connected to the internet (when a backup battery is connected). A dedicated header on the board has been added to allow the use of a backup battery for the RTC. A lithium battery with a compatible header will be available on, or shortly after, the launch of Raspberry Pi 5.

    Dedicated fan header
    Raspberry Pi 5 includes a new dedicated fan header to the right of the familiar GPIO pin header, allowing you to connect and run a cooling fan without interfering with your GPIO-connected devices. Now you can add HATs and other hardware without workarounds to connect a fan.

    Dedicated UART header
    Another handy addition to Raspberry Pi 5 is the dedicated UART header. Now you can debug and control your Raspberry Pi 5 headlessly and without interfering with your GPIO pins. This dedicated UART header also allows debugging from boot, and is designed to be used with the Raspberry Pi Debug probe for quick, convenient debugging.

    Plus other improvements and changes
  • Mounting holes for coolers/heatsinks (designed for the Raspberry Pi Active Cooler)
  • Composite video header
  • Memory indication markers for easy board RAM identification
  • Unique board ID number on the board and packaging
  • Relocated PoE header
  • Audio jack removed
  • Flush(ish) underside to GPIO pins
  • Metal supporting tabs to protect components on the underside
