It’s been four years since the Raspberry Pi Foundation introduced the mini-computer Raspberry Pi 4, and today they unveiled a successor to it. Raspberry Pi 5 is equipped with a quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor with a speed of 2.4GHz, which means that the new Raspberry Pi computer is two to three times faster than Raspberry Pi 4.
Furthermore, Raspberry Pi 5 has an 800MHz VideoCore VII chip for graphics along with 4GB or 8GB RAM. It comes with dual HDMI outputs supporting 4K, HDR, and 60fps, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and an Ethernet connector.
There’s also support for Wifi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and microSD cards. Raspberry Pi 5 will be released at the end of October. The model with 4GB RAM will cost 60 dollars while the 8GB model will cost 80 dollars.
