Original Raspberry Pi 5 4G 8G RAM Optional BCM2712 2.4GHz LPDDR4X-4267 VideoCore VII GPU 4Kp60 PCIe 2.0 RTC Development Board



1. Featuring a 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor running at 2.4GHz, Raspberry Pi 5 delivers a 2–3× increase in CPU performance relative to Raspberry Pi 4. Alongside a substantial uplift in graphics performance from an 800MHz VideoCore VII GPU; dual 4Kp60 display output over HDMI-compatible; and state-of-the-art camera support from a rearchitected Raspberry Pi Image Signal Processor, it provides a smooth desktop experience for consumers, and opens the door to new applications for industrial customers.

2. For the first time, this is a full-size Raspberry Pi computer using silicon built in-house at Raspberry Pi. The RP1 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high-speed peripherals; the dedicated two-lane 1Gbps MIPI camera and display interfaces present on earlier models have been replaced by a pair of four-lane 1.5Gbps MIPI transceivers, tripling total bandwidth, and supporting any combination of up to two cameras or displays; peak SD card performance is doubled, through support for the SDR104 high-speed mode; and for the first time the platform exposes a single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface, providing support for high-bandwidth peripherals.

What's On Board


Upgraded New Chipset


BCM2712 is a new quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A76 processor from Broadcom, clocked at 2.4GHz, with 512KB per-core L2 caches, and a 2MB shared L3 cache. Cortex-A76 is three microarchitectural generations beyond Cortex-A72, a better manufacturing process makes a faster Raspberry Pi 5 with lower power consumption.

An updated VideoCore hardware video scaler (HVS) is capable of driving two simultaneous 4Kp60 HDMI-compatible displays, up from single 4Kp60 or dual 4Kp30 on Raspberry Pi 4.



RP1 is the I/O controller designed for Raspberry Pi 5, provides two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 interfaces; a Gigabit Ethernet controller; two four-lane MIPI transceivers for camera and display; analogue video output; 3.3V general-purpose I/O (GPIO); and the usual collection of GPIO-multiplexed low-speed interfaces (UART, SPI, I2C, I2S, and PWM). A four-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface provides a 16Gb/s link back to BCM2712.



DA9091 is a power-management IC (PMIC) of the chipset. This integrates eight separate switch-mode power supplies to generate the various voltages required by the board, including a quad-phase core supply, capable of providing 20 amps of current to power the Cortex-A76 cores and other digital logic in BCM2712.
