Strong Showing for First Experimental RISC-V Supercomputer | Nicole Hemsoth, The Next Platform

A European team of university students has cobbled together the first RISC-V supercomputer capable of showing balanced power consumption and performance.

More importantly, it demonstrates a potential path forward for RISC-V in high performance computing and by proxy, another shot for Europe to shed total reliance on American chip technologies beyond Arm-driven architectures.

The “Monte Cimone” cluster will not be crunching massive weather simulations or the like anytime soon since it’s just an experimental machine. That said, it does show that performance sacrifices for lower power envelopes aren’t necessarily as dramatic as many believe.
