    Phoronix: SiFive HiFive Unmatched RISC-V Developer Boards Begin Shipping

    Announced last year was the HiFive Unmatched as the most compelling RISC-V development board to date. Following supply chain issues and everything else brought on by the pandemic, this very interesting RISC-V developer board is now shipping to customers...

    I'd like to know how the open source drivers hold up when using an AMD graphics card in that slot.

        They're not ported yet, are they?

          I'd expect that once the Linux Kernel knows how to talk to the PCIe bus (probably already upstream), then everything should just work. I'd assume Mesa already builds on RISC-V, since their previous RISC-V board worked with AMD GPUs through the FPGA PCIe addon.

            They work just fine right now. There are videos of them being used on the board.

              Seems to have support by Debian : https://wiki.debian.org/RISC-V#SiFiv...e_Unmatched.22
              Here is how to install Debian on it : https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDe...bian_on_HiFive

              Depending on how this performs I am almost tempted to swap out a Xeon E5335 (8 core) server with this. Looking forward to some benchmarks

                i am temped to make a nas/small home server out of this... but i would like to see more ram, 16 lanes pcie3 (not 8), and two m2 x4. i'll keep an eye on this.

                if someone has it: will emby work?

                  And now we have the Allwinner D1 SOC with a RISC-V core.

                  $99.

                    Lower the price a bit and put in [SO-]DIMM slots and this would be one of the best non-x86 desktop motherboards you could get. No weird form factors, modern-enough technology, uses a conventional PSU, and a good amount of useful expansion slots and pin headers.

                    Very cool to know Michael is getting his hands on one.
