From Raspberry Pi’s plethora of single-board computer models to Orange Pi’s own similarly powerful offerings, these machines, despite being small in stature, are becoming highly capable in their own right. Now, another robust device is set to join these devices’ ranks with the latter’s upcoming Orange Pi 5 Pro, which boasts several high-end specs that make it capable of developing AI applications.

That’s according to its product page, which lists an in-depth look at some of its robust new features. This includes a Rockchip RK3588S, embedded with a 6TOPS AI computing power NPU, hence its ability to develop AI apps. You can also equip it with 4GB/8GB/16GB LPDDR5 RAM to efficiently run even the most demanding games or applications without issue. Finally, it supports W-Fi 5 and Bluetooth support, which, if you’ve tried to install Windows 11 on a Raspberry Pi 5, is a crucial element when handling these types of boards.

Orange Pi 5 Pro release date remains unclear

Unfortunately, the Orange Pi 5 Pro release date still hasn’t been specified since its Amazon product page lists it as “currently unavailable.” However, it should only be a matter of time before it’s publicly available, especially since it already has a dedicated page with the online retailer and the company’s official website. The Pi 5 Pro will also be available in several different regions, as it’s set to be listed with China-based retailer AliExpress, though a page for it has yet to be published.

Of course, if you can’t wait for this robust board to arrive, we suggest checking out where to buy a Raspberry Pi 5 instead. This way, you can tinker with an equally capable device and turn it into what we think are some of the best uses for the Raspberry Pi 5.
