Raspberry Pi 5 introduced: 3 times more powerful, Power Delivery and upgraded ports


The Raspberry Pi company has introduced a new generation of the single-board computer of the same name – Raspberry Pi 5. The new product is distinguished primarily by processor performance, increased by 2-3 times compared to that of Raspberry Pi 4, as well as increased graphics performance thanks to an 800 MHz video accelerator. This was achieved thanks to a 64-bit chipset with four Cortex-A76 cores – it is noted that the model became the manufacturer’s first full-size single-board, the silicon for which was created in-house.
