Banana Pi BPI-F3 is a single-board PC with an 8-core RISC-V processor, dual Ethernet and PCIe 2.1

Most of Banana Pi’s single-board computers are powered by ARM-based processors. But the upcoming Banana Pi BPI-F3 has a RISC-V processor instead.

The company says the SpacemiT RISC-V K1 processor selected for this board is a 64-bit, 8-core chip with single-core performance comparable to what you’d expect from a 1.3 GHz ARM Cortex-A55 processor. So the BPI-F3 isn’t exactly going to be a speed demon, but it could be an interesting development platform for those looking to get their feet wet with RISC-V architecture… especially when you factor in some of the board’s other features.
