    Phoronix: Intel Joins RISC-V International, Will Help With RISC-V Open-Source Software

    Intel Foundry Services already courted SiFive as a customer and there were even those talks last year of Intel reportedly trying to acquire that leading RISC-V chip designer while today Intel has announced it joined RISC-V International as its latest move around this open-source processor ISA...

      RISC-V now w/ 100% more hardware vulnerabilities courtesy of Intel.

        Nah. Nvidia tried to scoop up ARM at almost the perfect time. ARM was finally truly competitive in Enterprise, meaning Nvidia had a clear path to the CPU side where they were already leading in GPU compute. RISC-V isn't even close to that level yet.

          Ahh... Intel me et al security features are deamons chasing the innocent arch's to poses them. Please can one exorcise them....?

            I would love for Intel to create a single-board computer using the RISC-V architecture with Intel Xe graphics. Maybe with Intel audio, Intel Wi-Fi and Intel Ethernet.

              Frankly I don't get the point. That the RISC-V ISA is free doesn't change the fact that manufacturers can (and absolutely WILL) implement antifeatures in the chips. Any Intel CPU will have its ME, subscription traps and other backdoors built-in regardless of its instruction set.

                ARM does not make server CPUs, they make CPU design IP that could be made into a server CPU. I doubt they even have a fully designed server chip anywhere at the company.

                  Makes sense. Intel's own manufacturing capabilities are so bad, they outsourced to TSMC and now need others to fill the void in their fabs.

                    Yes, but maybe it will be high performance. Imagine all the technical skills, know-how and competence at Intel, if they could apply that in creating a great RISC-V CPU. The Apple M1 crushes both Intel and AMD offerings. The x86 architecture is so inefficient.
