Raspberry PI 5 & DietPi

Its official - Raspberry PI 5 was announced for mid-end of month of October shipping.


Of course, my question will be, how long before DietPi supports the new board?

*my personal interest is an upgrade from Pi 4 to Pi 5 with PCIe m.2 SSD to speed up our WordPress hosted website.

“At idle, without any added cooling, it sits at around 50.5 degrees Celsius and consumes around 2.7 Watts.”

But Jeff mentioned in his video that RPi 5 has lower idle power consumption that RPi 4:

Best review yet!

Will be tracked on GitHub Image | Raspberry Pi 5 · Issue #6676 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub


Looks like good start but many issues to resolve before Dietpi is stable for Pi 5… Please keep us informed!
