What’s Raspberry Pi 5?

Raspberry Pi 5, the everything computer. Optimized.
With 2–3× the speed of the previous generation, and featuring silicon designed in‑house for the best possible performance, we’ve redefined the Raspberry Pi experience.

Computing for everybody
From industries large and small to the kitchen table tinkerer to the classroom coder, we make computing accessible and affordable for everybody.

How to make the Raspberry Pi 5 run stable?

Such a complete device needs to be adapted with a multi-purpose power supply, which is officially paired with 5V/5A DC power via USB-C, with Power Delivery support. The Raspberry Pi 27W USB-C Power Supply is an ideal power supply for Raspberry Pi 5, especially for users who wish to drive high-power peripherals such as hard drives and SSDs from Raspberry Pi 5’s four Type A USB ports. Additional built-in power profiles mean the Raspberry Pi 27W USB-C Power Supply is also an excellent option for powering third-party PD-compatible products. The available profiles are 9V, 3A; 12V, 2.25A; and 15V, 1.8A, all limited to a maximum of 27W.
There is a power supply that is perfectly compatible and replaces the original power supply,  BOXPUT RP5 Power Supply.

Will older versions of Raspberry Pi OS work with Raspberry Pi 5?

You will need the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, Bookworm, for your Raspberry Pi 5.

Will my Raspberry Pi 4 power supply work with Raspberry Pi 5?

Raspberry Pi 5 is a higher-performance computer than Raspberry Pi 4, and you may have problems using an under-powered supply. We recommend a high-quality 5V 5A USB-C power supply, such as the new Raspberry Pi 27W USB-C Power Supply.

Will my Raspberry Pi 5 fit my Raspberry Pi 4 case?

Raspberry Pi 5 won’t fit the Raspberry Pi 4 Case. We recommend the Raspberry Pi Case for Raspberry Pi 5, designed to help you get the most out of our newest computer.

Does Raspberry Pi 5 need active cooling?

Raspberry Pi 5 is faster and more powerful than prior-generation Raspberry Pis, and like most general-purpose computers, it will perform best with active cooling. The Raspberry Pi Case for Raspberry Pi 5, with its integrated fan, is one way to provide this.
