lowRISC: another year bites the dust? Anonymous 10/18/2017 (Wed) 05:41:40 [Preview] No. 11571
http://www.lowrisc.org/faq/

>When can I buy a lowRISC SoC?
>As with most tech projects, the most accurate answer is “When it’s ready”.
>We are expecting to crowdfund an initial instantiation of the lowRISC platform during the course of 2017.

I'm pretty sure the lowRISC FAQ said 2016 last year. It didn't happen, obviously, and it was changed to 2017, but we're running out of that, too. Ten weeks left, boys. Is a lowRISC SoC vaporware for another year?

At what point do we start looking to the J-x processors based on Hitachi's SuperH architecture? The last SH-4 patents are expiring this year.

Has anyone suggested that the board software be modified to allow noJS users to post more than one file at once? If not, I'll make that suggestion over on /operate/.

I think his file format was rejected or something, he definitely thinks he uploaded something but looking at the HTML says it's nothing.

HiFive or whatever it was called released a dev board yesterday for $1000 dollars.

That's a dev board though, that's an investment for businesses looking to use the technology, not for enthusiasts.

I wonder, does anyone know why RISC chips always run so fucking hot? The heatsinks on the Talos machine are insane. How is it that x86 has gotten around this?

>why RISC chips always run so fucking hot
ARM is RISC and run really cold. I don't think that a issue is RISC. Power was constructed primarilly for servers, so it will have more cores running, more L1 cache entries, so on.
>How is it that x86 has gotten around this?
From what I know, adaptative methods. For example, the clock and voltage adapts to the need of the user.

That was a great reply, thank you.

it's exactly for enthusiasts, unless by enthusiasts, you mean the kind of enthusiast artist that buys Crayola instead of watercolor. HiFive is offering a modern computer, on an entirely new, unexploited platform, for us to program, all for a measly grand. The opportunity here is huge, and poorfags are gonna dismiss it just cuz it's not China cheap and includes proprietary parts.
