A Broadcom BCM2712 acts as a system-on-chip Four Cortex-A76 cores at 2.4 GHz each and a Videocore VII GPU clocked at 800 MHz. According to the manufacturer, the CPU should offer double to triple the performance of the previous model. There is talk of a “significant” increase in graphics performance. PCI peripherals Can be connected to an adapter and now has one on the circuit board Energy-flavored.
On the side is a microSD slot, Gigabit Ethernet with PoE+, two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 and two MicroHDMI ports (HDMI 2.0). MIPI transceivers are also available for cameras and displays as well as GPIO headers. It works with Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0.
