SiFive claims ‘fastest licensable RISC-V processor IP’ for its 11+SPECInt2006/GHz core | Steve Bush, Electronics Weekly

By December 9, 2021December 10th, 2021No Comments

Building on the earlier Performance P550 processor, company engineering estimates are that it will have 40% more performance per clock cycle  – to 11+SPECInt2006/GHz – and it has architecture enhancements improve maximum clock frequency – together adding to 50% performance gain over the P550.

Performance can be scaled. Maximum is with sixteen cores in a coherent complex with platform-level memory management and interrupt control. Support is included for the new Risc-V hypervisor extension for virtualisation.
