Raspberry Pi 5?

Mon Sep 21, 2020 3:45 am

i used to post up a speculation thread about this right after the release of Pi 4, but got locked for being too early.

what do you think about the Pi 5? have a discussion here.

it would be epic to see Pi 5 to have a higher GPU and CPU core configuration, or even using a better CPU like Cortex X1.

Why?
I still have not learned how to code the Pi4 fully.

yep, so long as the price doesn't change much. ngl this was inspired from the fact of Pi 4 with 8GB RAM. faster Pi is for general purpose instead.

More likely it got locked because it was a speculation thread, full stop.

At this point, it is almost certain that the specifications for the Pi5 are set. It is likely that there is at least preliminary silicon in the hands of the RPT. Those that know the specs of the Pi5 aren't talking, and those that are talking don't know.

I'm not sure what actual improvements are feasible to make (though I'd bet that the folks at the RPT can...and will surprise us with what they've come up with). The only areas I can think of that could use some work would be the bandwidth between the SoC and the USB hub. I don't think we'll see anything faster than USB 3, but I'd say there is a long-shot chance that we'll actually get the full 5Gb/s. Given the way the TDP has been going, a fan header separate from the GPIO block would be Nice to Have, but I've no idea where it could be put given the existing wiring issues.

I doubt this thread will last very long before being locked.

the only thing i would like to see is a decent gpu that's fully accelerated.
i could care less if they pull another apple move & only change the gpu on the rpi4 8gb. :lol:

To late, the RPi 5B will have been planned already, Raspberry Pi Trading have a non public roadmap like any good business should.
