This week, Intel and the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) announced a €400 million (about $426 million) investment in a laboratory to create RISC-V-based processors that might be used to build zettascale supercomputers.

The facility, however, will not only focus on CPUs for next-generation supercomputers but also processor applications for artificial intelligence and driverless vehicles.

The research laboratory will most likely be located in Barcelona, Spain, and will receive €400 million over 10 years from Intel and the Spanish government. The collaborative research laboratory’s primary goal is to create chips based on the open-source RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) that may be utilized for a variety of applications such as AI accelerators, autonomous vehicles, and high-performance computing.
