Five Is The New Four Edition

Top Story

  • Now that production has finally caught up with demand and the Raspberry Pi 4 is actually available to buy again they've announced the Raspberry Pi 5.  (Tom's Hardware)

    The BCM2711 CPU in the Pi 4 has been replaced with a BCM2712.  Which doesn't tell you much, but they've gone from a quad Arm A72 at 1.5GHz to a quad Arm A76 at 2.4GHz, which should be about twice as fast.

    The 4GB model will be $60 (up from $55), and the 8GB model $80 (up from $75).

    I just got a Pi 400 - the model built in to a keyboard - but they haven't announced a Pi 500 as yet so I can live with that.

    The Pi 5 also has a single lane of PCIe 2, so you can add an M.2 SSD with a suitable adaptor.  It will only run at around 400MBps, but will still be better than the current micro SD cards.

1 That new Pi sounds like a nice improvement, but I already bought an Rock 5b last year:  quad A76 plus quad A55 and a decent GPU (Mali Odin with 4 CUs), plus an onboard NVMe slot.  Only problem is that they didn't certify the Android build they did, so no Gapps.

Yes, I mean as standalone keys.

It's not something I expect from a tablet keyboard - there usually isn't room - which is why it stood out.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
