    Phoronix: SiFive Tapes Out Their First 5nm RISC-V Processor Core

    SiFive's OpenFive business unit announced today they have completed their first tape out of a RISC-V processor core using TSMC's 5nm process...

      The Age of RISC-V is here. ARM is legacy.

        Russia. Definitely some collusion going on here.

          Remember that RISC-V is only the ISA , it is not the implementation. While I like the idea behind RISC-V and hope it catches on I do fear that it is only a question of time before extensions/improvements are no longer required to pass through RISC-V international. If that happens we can just crank our stereo up to max and hit play on Properllerheads' history repeating because that it exactly what will happen.

          On the other hand it would be nice if all platforms and/or devices was able to run the same code, all information (which includes software) was free, copyright was a thing of the past and software patents where unheard of. I am pretty sure that I will be roasting in hell way before ...or even if that happens!

            I like how they can connect multiple dice together Michael - (typo) does this mean we can all roll 20's at once?

              Given that ARMv8 is functionally like MIPS (not in encoding though) with some cruft removed, which itself is mostly RISC-III and RISC-IV (based on those academic ISAs), and RISC-V is the successor, that's mostly true.
              All hail our RISC-V overlords.

                I'm pretty sure they're just making a joke.

                  But ARM just released ARMv9. So ARMv8 is the old stuff now.

                    Tell me about it. Just bought a Zen2 APU and goddamn AMD is already announcing Zen3 APUs; I'll be legacy in three weeks time
