$99.00 Orange Pi 5 Plus SBC is now available to order

May 15, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 8,946 views

Orange Pi recently launched a single board computer equipped with an octa-core Rockchip RK35588 SoC along with an up to 6 TOPs NPU. The new SBC can handle up to four displays, two 2.5GbE LAN  interfaces and many other expansion ports.

Unlike the Orange Pi 5 (Rockchip RK3588S), this new SBC implements the 64-bit RK35588 SoC with 8nm LP process. 


  • RK3588 — 4x Cortex A76 cores (up to 2.4GHz); 4x Cortex-A55 cores (up to 1.8GHz); Arm Mali-G610 GPU; 6 TOPS NPU

The product page shows the Orange Pi 5 Plus available with different memory configurations ranging from 4GB to 16GB (LPDDR4/4x). For storage, the SBC provides a MicroSD card slot, an eMMC socket with support for up to 256GB and a M.2 M-key slot for NVMe SSD (up to 2,000 MB/s) located on the bottom side.

One edge of the board features the power connector (Type-C), 2x 2.5GbE LAN ports, 2x HDMI out (up to 8k@60FPS), 1x HDMI in (4K@60FPS) and 2x stacked USB 2.0 interfaces.

The opposite of the board exposes 1x USB 3.0 port, 2x stacked USB 3.0 ports, 1x MIC, 1x 3.5mm audio jack, a MaskROM button, 1x power button and an IR receiver. The camera connector (MIPI CSI 4-Lane) and the MIPI DSI 4-Lane connector (up to 4K@60Hz) can be found on the bottom of the device as shown below.

Serial interfaces such as UART, I2C, SPI, CAN, I2S, SDIO, etc. are available via the 40-pin expansion headers present in similar Orange Pi boards.

OrangePi OS images are not available yet, but might be available under the Downloads page in the near future. Armbian might also provide support for this board since they released images for the predecessor Orange Pi 5/5B not so long ago.

    Interesting hardware indeed, although by stubbornly refusing to include Paypal among the supported payment methods, they’re losing a lot of potential customers, including myself. I bought only a very small set of the OrangePis I wanted to use, all from 3rd party ebay vendors and of course all low end ones because of the not trivial premium to pay. I’m sorry, but until they add Paypal, I’m sticking with NanoPi and other options from Pine64, Hardkernel and others.

    or buy a i5/i3 intel based mini PC used available for ~$60 w power supplies… far more powerful CPU millions of supported apps etc … Linux and Windows 100% supported

  3. Mike says:

    How hard is it to install orange Pi OS on this and get it running to the desktop UI for someone who has no experience at all with Raspberry Pi or any other things like that at all?

  4. Ray Knight says:

    Where do you see this as available to order? The Amazon link is still showing as “Currently unavailable.” and has been for some time.

    • Giorgio Mendoza says:

      That’s strange, maybe they sold out? I was able to get one, it says it’ll arrive in June 2-20

  5. Yury Meshkov says:

    I ordered Orangepi 5B on it was delivered to US in less than 3 weeks. This board should be no different.
