A single high-end Xilinx FPGA has played host to an impressive 6,000 individual SERV cores — a new CoreScore world record.
There’s a new world record in the semiconductor field: 6,000 RISC-V cores crammed into a single field-programmable gate array (FPGA), as measured by the CoreScore benchmark.
“What do you do when you have the award-winning SERV, the world’s smallest RISC-V CPU,” asks Olof Kindgren, creator of the SERV core and the CoreScore benchmark that measures just how many of the tiny cores you can cram into a chip. “Well, among other things we of course want to see how many SERV cores you can fit into various devices. This is what CoreScore is for. And on top of that list of currently 30 boards we can now find Sylvain Lefebvre and his Xilinx VCU128 board that fits 6000 SERV cores.”
