Raspberry Pi changes and Pi 5 expectations

With more than 34 million units sold, the Raspberry Pi is not only one of the world’s most popular computers; it’s also one of the most important. The profits from the sale of Raspberry Pi computers help fund the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s educational initiatives.

Raspberry Pi Launches New Website For Its Hardware article writes that in a surprise move, Raspberry Pi today announced that a new website has been created to support Raspberry Pi devices, sales and documentation.

You can find the educational resources now at https://www.raspberrypi.org/ and information on computer products at https://www.raspberrypi.com/.

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is here the newest SBC computer board and Raspberry Pi Pico is the newest microcontroller board.

What could the next generation Raspberry Pi SBC bring? It is expected to be Raspberry Pi 5. Will it even be called that?
Well I don’t know for sure because Raspberry Pi 5 is not released yet. But many people are curious about the probable specs and launch date of the upcoming Raspberry Pi board. Here are some links related to what Pi 5 is expected to be:

    New Raspberry Pi Zero 2 Upgrades To Quad-Core Processor
    https://hackaday.com/2021/10/27/new-raspberry-pi-zero-2-upgrades-to-quad-core-processor/

    Over the years, we’ve seen a steady stream of updates for the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s flagship single-board computer (SBC), with each new release representing a significant boost in processing power and capability. But the slim Raspberry Pi Zero, released all the way back in 2015, hasn’t been quite so fortunate. Beyond the “W” revision that added WiFi and Bluetooth in 2017, the specs of the diminutive board have remained unchanged since its release.

    That is, until now. With the introduction of the $15 USD Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W, the ultra-compact Linux board gets a much-needed performance bump thanks to the new RP3A0 system-in-package, which combines a Broadcom BCM2710A1 die with 512 MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM and a quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1 GHz. In practical terms, the Raspberry Pi Foundation says the new Zero 2 is five times as fast as its predecessor with multi-threaded workloads, and offers a healthy 40% improvement in single-threaded performance. That puts it about on par with the Raspberry Pi 3, though with only half the RAM.

    I got my hands on the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. It’s more than twice as fast as the original Pi Zero and Pi Zero W, but what other secrets does it hold?

    I X-rayed it to find out what’s *inside* this little Pi!
