[ABOpen]Raspberry Pi Foundation Announces RISC-V Foundation Membership

AB Open Article: Raspberry Pi Foundation Announces RISC-V Foundation Membership

Quote:
The original Raspberry Pi launched in February 2012 as a low-cost single-board computer (SBC) primarily targeting the hobbyist and educational market and based around a Broadcom BCM2835 single-core Arm system-on-chip. Originally developed for set-top box use, the Broadcom chip boasted surprisingly powerful graphics but a weak, 32-bit processing core – something the not-for-profit Raspberry Pi Foundation has sought to address in more recent releases, eventually settling on a 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 IP.

Now, though, the Foundation has announced that it is joining the RISC-V Foundation, suggesting that a shift away from Arm could be on the cards. “We’re excited to have joined the RISC-V Foundation as a silver member,” the Raspberry Pi Foundation posted to its Twitter account. “[We’re] hoping to contribute to maturing the Linux kernel and Debian port for the world’s leading free and open instruction set architecture.”
This is not a product announcement, but signals that there will likely be a product announcement in the future that Raspberry is moving over from ARM to RISC-V, or at least will provide a RISC-V version of the Pi.

This is why that matters:

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.
