    Yes/No. It doesn't have a hardware encode IP block, but the software-encode performance on RPi5 is better than the hardware H264 encode on RPi4.

      There will be an adaptor to M2 in near future. Thus the mention of PCIe 2.0 x1 interface.

        I am going to repeat others, but its io is shitty. I mean the fastest it has to offer is 1 (one) ancient PCIe lane. Its thruput is 500MB/s. This is even worse than sata 3...

            Poor IO is only one tiny detail. What's more important, that the product itself has no vision. It tries to be "one size fits all" for the hobbyist then in fact it's sub-optimal for almost all use cases:
            - the lack of public datasheets and other technical documentation makes it unfriendly for hardware hackers and low level programmers;
            - the lack of ports and selection of ports (like those 2 uHDMIs instead one full size HDMI - most idiotic decision ever) makes it unfriendly for high level software hobbyists;
            - the lack of performance (and thing above) makes it unsuitable as an ARM-based miniPC;
            - the abundance of cheaper and more feature rich clones makes it not that budget-oriented SBC as it used to be;

            OK, so aside community and software support, what is it for? I don't know. It's a nice toy for zoomers to control RGB lighting (cause you know, lots of "howtos" for RPI) and flex about it on social media I guess.

              Looks nice. particularly the move to proper USB 3 ports. Do you intend to bench more them to see if performance is as expected?

              what’s annoying is the timing. I wanted a Pi as a Time Machine (Apple Backup), run PiHole and Mastodon. So I ordered a 8GB Pi4b September 6th, return window ended 20-22 Sept and now this announcement 🤬

              this version seems to improve all the aspects that I want from it.

                Imagine having bought a pi4 last week for 106€

                Prices are still completely ridiculous on those

                  Wasted opportunity for Raspberry Pi 5 to be based on RISC-V and thus stay relevant.

                    i thought you would have have done usb and ethernet benchmarks.

                      As long as you don't care 4k, HDR and 10-bit in 2023, then RPi4 can do the job.
