The next iteration of the Raspberry Pi single board computer 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; 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.
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high-speed peripherals; the dedicated two-lane 1Gbps MIPI camera and display interfaces present on earlier models have been replaced by a pair of four-lane 1.5Gbps MIPI transceivers, tripling total bandwidth, and supporting any combination of up to two cameras or displays; peak SD card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.
This module features 8GB of LPDDR4X-4267 SDRAM.

There was an issue in shipping my Pi 5 board, when i contacted Sparkfun support, they replied quickly giving me options to have a replacement shipped to me. I had replied and said i wished to have a new one shipped, and have still not heard back from them to this day (around 2-3 weeks later) It marvels me that such a large company can engage in a conversation and then completely ignore my needs. the fact that i've received no response and still got this email asking to leave a review is baffling
I swapped my RPi 4 out for the 5. This one isn't even breaking a sweat. My last one had trouble with a few processes. Very happy with my purchase!
After using it for a few days, I'm impressed. I have mine running on a SSD but so far, it's doing well for a tiny PC. Can stream video while browsing social media on two monitors.
I won't need the big desktop as much anymore. :)
Look elsewhere. I preordered on launch day and still haven’t heard a single update from Spark Fun. I’ve reached out to customer service and it’s been crickets. Other’s I’ve spoke to have had the same experience. I have friends that ordered from other retailers AFTER I did and not only did they get regular email updates with shipping eta’s based on order number batches, they have already received their Pi 5’s! This has been a terrible experience and will be my final dealing with spark fun.
