Sipeed Teases a RISC-V System-on-Module That “Beats the Raspberry Pi 4” in Performance | Gareth Halfacree,

With four RISC-V cores running at 2.5GHz and up to 16GB of RAM, the compact Lichee Module 4 A aims to outperform Raspberry Pi’s best board.

Embedded computing specialist Sipeed has teased a high-performance system-on-module (SOM) built around the free and open-source RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) — and claims it can out-perform the Raspberry Pi 4’s Arm Cortex-A72 cores.

“We are glad to public[ly announce] the high performance RISC-V SOM, LM4A,” Sipeed posted to Twitter this week, coinciding with the RISC-V Summit in San Jose this week. “It beat[s] RPi4B [the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B] in Dhrystone and CoreMarks [benchmarks], prov[ing] RISC-V is qualified in HPC [High-Performance Computing] field.”
