Since the RISC and CISC wars that raged in the late 1990s, people have claimed that RISC and CISC doesn’t matter anymore. Many will claim that instruction-sets are irrelevant.

But instruction-sets matter. They put limits on what kind of optimizations you can easily add to a microprocessor.

I have lately been learning more about the RISC-V instruction-set architecture (ISA) and here are some of the things which really impress me about the RISC-V ISA:
