Power of potential
A lot of people here at Raspberry Pi are very excited for the addition of PCI Express. NVME storage is one thing, a very cool thing that will make for some very low-profile home file servers, but we’re looking forward to seeing what people connect to it over time. How soon until someone has an RTX 4090 hooked up to it? Then we’ll truly be playing with power.
While I’ll definitely be using it myself for retro game stuff, desktop computing, and media server stuff (the new VideoCore is very nice!), what I’m most excited for is to see what folks in the community come up with. Alasdair Allan, Head of Documentation here at Raspberry Pi, has already mentioned wanting to do more machine learning tests on it using the extra oomph the chipset provides. What else will you all come up with? As always, flood The MagPi social media accounts with what you do make so that I can see.
I have to remind myself that, although everyone knows about it, it’s not out just yet! For the next issue, we’re already working on cool stuff you can do with Raspberry Pi 5, so you will be well fed with inspiration and tutorials to get you started. In the meantime, what do you want to make with Raspberry Pi 5? We’re all ears/eyes. Drop us a social media message or an email – we’re on Mastodon, Threads, Facebook, etc.
