Orange Pi 5 Support Nears The Mainline Linux Kernel
Sent out on Friday were the latest patches for bringing up the Orange Pi 5 DT for the mainline kernel. The patches are still under review and some items raised with these new v2 patches, but hopefully before long the Orange Pi 5 will be able to work on the upstream kernel.
The Orange Pi 5 is powered by an octa-core AArch64 SoC, the Rockchip RK3588S. The RK3588S provides a mix of Cortex A76 and A55 cores. This SBC is available with system RAM options of 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB of LPDDR4/LPDDR4x. The Orange Pi 5 also supports HDMI 2.1, Gigabit Ethernet, USB Type-C power supply, 26-pin GPIO header, and more. See my prior Orange Pi 5 benchmarks/review for more details on this interesting ARM Linux board.
The Orange Pi 5 boards are currently in the $99 to $150 price range depending upon options via Amazon (affiliate link).
