MBC5 is a licensed Game Boy chip by various manufacturers such as Sharp, Texas Instruments, ROHM, OKI and Nintendo, and the last widely used Game Boy MBC mapper, supporting larger file-size ROMs than before. Although the MBC6 exists, it was only used in one known game. A MBC7 exists as well; too, few games would use it.

MBC5 supports up to a 8MiB ROM, and 128KiB RAM (twice the RAM as before). MBC5 supports tighter CGB Double Speed Mode timing not fully supported in earlier memory bank controllers.[1]
