In the mainstream CPU market, the high-performance field is composed of X86 architecture, and the low-power field is occupied by ARM. While both sides are plotting to encroach on each other's core areas, RISC-V architecture sprung up and has been becoming the third largest CPU architecture, and the shipment volume has reached 10 billion cores in recent years.
At the recent Embedded World Exhibition, Calista Redmond, CEO of RISC-V International, announced that the shipments of RISC-V cores had reached 10 billion. She said that open standards are the key, "Linux has done this for software, and we are doing the same for hardware." "We estimate that there are already 10 billion (RISC-V) cores the market."
It took 17 years for the ARM architecture to reach 10 billion shipments in 2008. As Redmond said in May 2022, RISC-V may grow faster in the future. Adding that she believes that within the next five years RISC-V could accomplish what ARM has achieved in the past 20 years.
