The last time that we saw a new Raspberry Pi was before COVID. The new Pi 5 was announced and is specifically for those that enjoy single board computing. This will be available in just a few weeks, and is a distinct upgrade over the 4, with better CPU and video. It has a minor price bump, and needs some help on keeping to cool. I’ve provided a link to Tom’s Hardware, which puts it through the paces and explores a lot of the nerdier specs, covering the end-to-end improvements. If you explore some of these modern variants of the old-school learning through hands-on experimentation, then you should be excited!

The new Raspberry Pi 5 features a faster CPU, built-in real-time clock, better video and a power on / off button.
