The popular free operating system Ubuntu will now be officially available(opens in new tab) on a second line of RISC-V single-board computers, this time the VisionFive(opens in new tab) board from Chinese manufacturer StarFive.

The Raspberry Pi(opens in new tab)-like board, which matches a dual-core 64-bit U74 processor running at 1GHz with 8GB of RAM, a 4K video decoder (though no proper GPU) and some interesting co-processors for neural networks and deep learning. There are also all the ports you’d expect including GPIO, on a board that measures just 4 x 2.8 inches (100 x 72 mm) and has previously only been able to run an official Fedora Linux distribution.
