  • RISC-V Adds Support For CD-ROM Images To Its Default Linux 6.1 Kernel Configuration

    Phoronix: RISC-V Adds Support For CD-ROM Images To Its Default Linux 6.1 Kernel Configuration

    Not that you are likely to connect a CD/DVD drive to a RISC-V system in 2022+, but RISC-V's default kernel configuration with the upcoming Linux 6.1 kernel is adding support for CD-ROM file-systems...

    that's cool, but have you seen this kernel developer running an Unmatched RISCV64 Linux desktop with AMD RDNA2 dGPU? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv4-_a_3BKg

      Speaking of that reminds me that Intel's Horse Creek board was recently demo'd and appears to feature an ATX power connector and a full-length PCIe 5.0 slot, with x8 connectivity.



      The exciting article ends on a slight down note:

      "No availability date for the new Horse Creek Dev boards has been announced yet."

        I'm gonna get an ARC (for AV1 encoding), and I'll try to get it running on my Unmatched first. If anyone wants a shell on that machine let me know, I don't need that card right away.

        I might be able to get an external IPKVM on it or something, if somebody has suggestions.

          I'd love to see a lower powered (i.e. can be powered by the PCIe slot alone), fanless ARC card that could be used for things like this! Or a RISC-V board that had an ARC-based dGPU soldered onto it

            Not fanless, but I'm sure I've read about a ARC A380 card without the supplemental power connector.

            Regarding fanless, you're going to be extremely limited on that front. Nvidia GTX 1030 comes to mind... I'm not sure there's anything newer or better than that. I think AMD could do fanless with Navi 24, but wouldn't count on anyone taking the bait... er... initiative.

            Maybe this SiFive / Intel partnership will see a RISC-V SoC with an Intel tGPU in package.

              FYI, the VisionFive2, Star64 and other new cheap boards based on JH7110 are significantly faster than the Unmatched.

              It's gonna be much fun when they start shipping.

                Horse Creek is based on SiFive's fastest core and made on the Intel 4 process. They claim it's roughly equivalent to an ARM Cortex A75, although probably not counting Neon performance since the SiFive core lacks the new RISC-V vector extensions.

                  And that's despite using the older P550 core. IIRC SiFive announced the P650 back in 2020 already.
