The RISC-V architecture, which is in direct competition with ARM, is making more news headlines recently. So how do RISC-V and ARM differ, what products is RISC-V being integrated into, and will it overtake ARM?
How do RISC-V and ARM differ?
RISC-V is the name for a computer architecture that continues to show up in product news, but when compared to ARM, there are few differences. Of course, both instruction sets are different, and therefore code written for one will not operate on the other. Still, besides that, both are reduced instruction set computers that have fewer (and simpler instructions), than a CISC processor such as an Intel i5 or an AMD Ryzen.
