Raspberry Pi 5: available now!

Three weeks ago, we unveiled the latest generation of our flagship product: Raspberry Pi 5. Since then, we’ve shared insights into the overall architecture of the platform, the RP1 I/O controller, the software stack, the image signal processor, and some of our official accessories, including the case, and the forthcoming updated PoE+ HAT.

Behind the scenes, we’ve been working hard with our friends at the Sony UK Technology Centre in Wales (where your Pi is baked) to ramp up the manufacturing and production test processes. Things have gone a little faster than expected, and we’re happy to announce that the first mass-production units will ship to customers this week. As promised, we’ll be starting with subscribers to The MagPi and HackSpace magazines, who have taken advantage of the Priority Boarding promotion.

By the end of next week, all existing Priority Boarding orders will have shipped, and every Approved Reseller in a country where our compliance paperwork has been signed off by the authorities will have received initial stock of both 4GB and 8GB variants, so those of you who have pre-ordered will start to see parcels arriving in your mailboxes. We are continuing to increase our production rate, with the aim of fulfilling all backorders, and getting Raspberry Pi in stock at all our Approved Resellers, by the end of the year – by then we expect you to be able to just buy one straight off the shelf.

So, what are the number of units available on day one? Using the Priority Boarding access for both MagPi and HackSpace, I was told by the provider (PiShop.us) that they had sold out of the 8GB units and that was on the 2nd of this month. I don’t think there are enough fenced off supplies for priority boarding. That would be a shame, but also fairly predictable given the insatiable appetite for these boards.

Apparently Pimoroni has a delay (of a few days from today), curious as to why that is the case, but I assume it’s down to lack of shipmates to get the orders portside fast enough.

I’m interested in what cases would require so much RAM?

I would like to buy a Pi 5 as a desktop station, just to surf a little and write programs for the Pi Zero. Maybe 4GB is enough for me?!

Reply to Marcello

nafanz avatar

For example, to install Ubuntu. I tried this on RP4 with 8GB. It worked slowly. I mean watching videos and browsing. Perhaps it’s worth evaluating this again on the current version.

Carlos Luna avatar

The PI 5 is faster, and feels way faster than the Pi 4 for the tasks you mention. A Pi 5 with 8gb of RAM makes a very usable desktop computer.16gb would be nice, but it is not essential IMHO.

Reply to Carlos Luna

SleepyD avatar

This exactly.

Reijo Korhonen avatar

Yes, when 16GB will be available this model will be usable for all desktop duties like developing apps. It will be very ecologic solution. If keyboard in keyboard model is usable, what more your need? But this is for linux users.

Luke avatar

Sounds like you need a PC instead of SBC (Single Board Computer). If your requirement is to run multimedia desktop, browse the Internet and have 16GB then RPi is not for you. RPi 5 is already reaching 25W of power at load and costs $80. That’s neighborhood of used laptops/SFF PCs/thin clients/etc with x86 CPU, expandable RAM, way more PCI-e lanes and GPUs with excellent open source drivers and video decode acceleration (Intel, AMD/Radeon).

Reply to Luke

Steve N Nordquist avatar

Lol why disqualify an Rpi if he isn’t even insisting on emulation of Android nn ? For more sata? I agree I need to see those heatsinks that make sense, and maybe nice ways to hinge the Rpi to a picture plate mounted behind a monitor, but you haven’t valorated your use case.

CooliPi avatar

When your software allocates that memory, it starts to swap RAM data to a swap media (SD card, USB stick, M.2 SSD). Slow as hell and destroys the media considerably. My 8GB RPI4 is kinda slow, but doesn’t swap. Usual browser memory allocation is around 5GB of RAM.

In other words, more RAM is a hedge against potential disk swap thrashing.

Sometimes it’s helful to run sudo fstrim -v / to release some unused blocks on your disk, might speed up swapping too.

Ubuntu on my PC with Awesome WM sits at around 1.3 GB of ram usage when idle. With two tabs opened in Firefox as of right now, RAM consumption is 1.9 GB.

Reply to Pablo

barleyguy avatar

Using zram can make a big difference to the amount of swapping. What it does is perform the first layer of swapping to compressed RAM instead of to the disk. It’s especially effective with a browser because it the tabs you aren’t looking at can probably be compressed.

Reply to barleyguy

Steve N Nordquist avatar

That’s fine, but it’s also a tuning option in Chrome so you stay under SSD cache size with the paging business if in fact you have allocated a swap volume or such. [Has 48 macro tabs open in Chrome…beta on Android on a phone with decent RAM.] Better to suggest SSDs with (maybe separate, but) appreciable cache RAM to them! Also…the 32 and 64 GB ecosystem members, other coping mechanisms in case you want to know what you’re getting when you’re running small 🦙 Llama AI or such on an Rpi.

Reply to Steve N Nordquist

Jim Klimov avatar

My take would be a build node for a CI farm, to be sure Pi users are natively handled well. As this involves lots of discardable I/O, it is better to use RAM disks – faster and no SSD/flash wear with data useless long-term. Also caching of sources and `ccache` objects to not always hit the flash even for reads…

Also since there are many use-cases (OSes, HA plugins and whatnot), running ARM VMs or containers there would be neat – and would benefit from as much RAM as can be thrown at it. Got 32Gb versions? ;)

blockchain node, is a good example to require 16GB. pi’s are very resilient to the elements and can see them as a powerful resource in a decentralized system vs. all running in AWS.

Steve avatar

Hi. If your situation is light use,as you’ve described, then i would have thought the 4Gb version would be OK. Especially as getting an 8Gb version might involve a long wait. I only have the Pi 4 with 4Gb and don’t feel that I’m lacking RAM. More important for me is disk read write speed (i have an ssd). I’ll probably get a Pi 5 apart from the quicker processor, I like the idea of having a more integrated solution for the SSD storage.

Judging by the silkscreen on the PCB, there maybe a 1GB and 2GB version possible, but there is no little jumper link for anything beyond 8GB.

And before anybody tries it, moving the 0Ohm resistor won’t magically increase (or decrease) your RAM…

Anders avatar

Additional 8GB available for $3.99 per month subscription or $40 annually.

crumble avatar

I guess when the Pi gets a 64bit RAM bus. There are not many 16GByte chips with a 32 bit bus.

Licenses for 64 bit must be expensive. Otherwise this should be a really cheap way to double memory speed. I cannot see a good reason why someone buys a Pi5 and run a 32bit OS on it.

Great news. I received my “priority order” on Saturday. Pleasant surprise when it arrived before the launch date. I even updated my latest YouTube video so I could mention the update.

Checked all approved retailers in Eastern Europe and none of them have the board in stock. Most of them say that the board will be available in early 2024…
Are there any alternatives in this area? Ordering from Pimoroni or other British retailers is obviously out of the question due to brexit issues…

One caveat is that booting to USB may require a 5 amp PD power supply. (This is mentioned in the engineering interviews.)

I made an order from PiShop.us and SparkFun for an 8GB and a 4GB model (respectively) on September 28. I got order confirmations from both that same day, so I logged in to each today, as the release day was yesterday. SparkFun still says it will ship when it arrives. PiShop shows absolutely NO information, despite originally giving me a confirmation in September; it does NOT show in my orders.

I ordered from an official reseller a couple hours after the announcement and was placed in the first batch with expected delivery on 2023-10-25. Yesterday, I got an email from the reseller saying the delivery would be delayed by at least two weeks due to manufacturing delays on your side. Yet here, you claim manufacturing is running ahead of schedule.
So which one of you is lying?

Reply to Blast.FX

Can you let me know who that was? There are no manufacturing delays, but one of our partners did make the bizarre decision to send a large batch out to the US on a boat rather than on a plane – that’s probably what’s hit you.

I’ve snipped your comment – I hope you don’t mind. What you were sent is not accurate and I don’t want it to spread further!

Sounds like RP5 is having a very successful debut. After all the pain of the chips shortage, and the gradual restoration of availability for customers in the hobbyist / maker community during this year, the announcement of a new Pi a few weeks came as a pleasant surprise, and has stimulated a lot pent-up demand. For all the irate talk of abandoning Raspberry Pi in favour of other manufacturers / buying second hand x64 machines /magical thinking about RISC V, it remains a platform with an unique value proposition, given the product quality, unrivalled software support and the active user communities. The Pi Foundation deserve congratulations, and also no small measure of respect for coming through a very challenging time for their business, and their customers, with their integrity and ambition intact. Now, with Pi’s starting to arrive in the hands of the priority purchasers, people just need to have a little more patience as inventory arrives and ships to customers and resellers around the world. After three years of Pi famine, uncertainty and frustration, everyone can be assured that they will soon have their delivery, and be able to buy as many as they like by the new year. So breathe deeply, and meditate on the folly of excessive attachment: anything good is with waiting just a little bit longer for.

Mikael avatar

Copying this from the forums, in case any fellow Swedes are wondering:

Just got word back from the Swedish authorized reseller: Apparently Raspberry Pi have not communicated any delivery date to them yet. Because of this, their official stance is that they hope to be able to start deliveries sometime in the coming month, but it could be that the start of delivery is pushed into December. While I understand that things can happen in mass production and distribution, I would rather have appreciated a bit more transparency from Eben Upton on this. Headlining with “Pi 5 now available” and proceding to say that they’re ahead of schedule sets some expectations and if there are caveats it’s probably better to be open about it.

Oh well, in the end this is hardly a life or death matter. :)

To be honest, Eben did mention compliance paperwork potentially causing differences in delivery dates between countries, so that could be one reason.

Reply to Mikael

Kevin avatar

I ordered mine at the backend of last month and I’m told I won’t receive mine until next year ( no specific date) then I just read an article saying scalpers are selling them on ebay for double and triple the RRP. Why are people allowed to buy multiple pi’s at launch? it should be restricted to 1 per customer, so legit people like myself can get a hold of one shortly after launch, not several months later.

Reply to Kevin

Liz Upton avatar

None of the resellers are supposed to be selling multiples: if you see one who is, please let us know. There will always be some people who will try to sell on for a profit on eBay, but we’ve been keeping an eye out and there is nobody there who has been able to get more than one unit to sell – again, if you see someone who genuinely appears to have multiples, please let us know.

What is the Raspberry PI foundation going to do about their “approved resellers” lying about the release date, allowing employees to purchase every single RPI5, and are now reselling them on Amazon for double? MicroCenter in Madison Hgts, MI even changed the release date on their website to Nov 3. As of November 1st they show “Sold Out” yet not one customer got to buy one.
This is unethical behavior from your “authorized resellers”.

Reply to Jeff

Helen Lynn avatar

A degree of cynicism is healthy but sheesh.

  • – AFAICT, and ICBW, but stock has not yet reached local Micro Center stores because logistics can sometimes be genuinely very challenging
  • – A Nov 3 “release date” probably just means that’s when the store people think the truck with the Pi 5s will show up
  • – The “sold out” indication on that and other store websites probably just means “not currently in stock” and the website doesn’t have a way to specify whether that’s “not here yet, might be later” or “was here, all gone now”
  • – If you’ve come across evidence that something really dodgy is going on you can use the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page to tell us about it and we’ll take serious concerns seriously, but otherwise we’ll go on with the assumption that the staff at your local store are ordinary decent people trying to make a living, and not wicked scalpers
