Description of the processor

The Raspberry Pi 5 B processor (Broadcom BCM2712) is used exclusively in the fifth version of the ever-popular Raspberry Pi mini-computer. The Raspberry Pi 5 B came onto the market in the third quarter of 2023 and is very popular, so that there were always sold out warehouses and long delivery times. The processor is manufactured with a structure width of 16 nanometers and is based on a monolithic chip design. It is equipped with a 2.00 megabyte level 2 cache and the level 3 cache is also 2.00 megabytes in size. Linux and the ARM version of Windows are supported as operating systems. There is even its own distribution, the Raspberry Pi OS, which is based on Debian Linux.

The Broadcom BCM2712 is based on a normal processor core architecture with 4 identical processor cores. These are four Cortex-A76 cores that have a standard clock frequency of 1.00 gigahertz. The maximum turbo clock of the four processor cores is 2.40 gigahertz. Hyperthreading technology is not supported by the processor, so the processor has four physical and 4 logical cores available.

The in-house Broadcom VideoCore VII is used as the internal graphics unit. These were also published in the third quarter of 2023 and are also manufactured using the 16-nanometer process. The internal graphics unit, which is equipped with 8 execution units and 128 shader units, achieves an FP32 computing power of only 120 GigaFLOPS, which should make it clear that you can only run the simplest graphics applications here. Actually, it is only intended to set up the Raspberry Pi for the first time or to run a status monitor.

The RAM of the Raspberry Pi 5 B is always soldered. It is equipped with 2, 4 or 8 gigabytes of LPDDR4X-4266 RAM.
