Neox Series RISC-V 3D GPUs Will Be Demoed Next Week

Neox Series RISC-V 3D GPUs Will Be Demoed Next Week

We often hear about RISC-V, its competitive open-source architecture, and how it is making inroads into the CPU industry. However, last year we reported on an open source GPU under development, which would seriously bolster the development of open-source graphics engines. This week Think Silicon announced that it is ready to “showcase the industry’s first…

Researchers Benchmark Experimental RISC-V Supercomputer

Researchers Benchmark Experimental RISC-V Supercomputer

A group of researchers from the Università di Bologna and Cineca has explored an experimental eight-node 32-core RISC-V supercomputer cluster. The demonstration showed that even a bunch of humble SiFive’s Freedom U740 system-on-chips could run supercomputer applications at relatively low power. Moreover, the cluster worked well and supported a baseline high-performance computing stack. Need for…

China's Ubuntu Kylin Targets Second RISC-V Board

China’s Ubuntu Kylin Targets Second RISC-V Board

Ubuntu Kylin, China’s official fork of Ubuntu, which is named after a mythical part-dragon, part-horse (maybe part-giraffe?) beast, is now targeting a second RISC-V platform following its release for the five-core HiFive Unmatched Mini ITX board earlier this year. According to The Register, the new port for an unnamed StarFive development board will be part…

AMD Job Posting Hints at Embedded RISC-V CPUs

AMD’s Radeon Technology Group (RTG) is hiring a RISC-V CPU/GPU designer for its existing team of architects developing embedded RISC-V CPUs. A new job posting indicates that the development of RISC-V-based solutions is well underway at AMD, whereas the fact that Radeon Technologies Group is hiring specialists could give a hint about the applications RTG is working…
