Right, and I’ll be first in line to buy a Raspberry Pi 2/3 class RISC-V board, from whoever is first to market. Well, and probably whoever is 2nd as well
Meanwhile I’ve got the HiFive1 and will be evangelizing that far and wide, including at work (where I make compilers for custom CPUs). It’s tantalisingly close to a Pi 1 in speed (even more so to original iPhone!). If only it had more RAM
If you can get future chips on to 40 nm (I believe that’s what both the BCM-2835 (Pi 1) an BCM-2836 (Pi 2) are on) they should kick butt!
