SiFive Demonstrates RISC-V Rack Mount HPC Cluster

As 1 of the most important driving forces at the rear of the RISC-V architecture, SiFive tends to introduce and showcase RISC-V solutions not available from anyone else in the sector. This week the company shown the industry’s to start with RISC-V cluster that could be employed for substantial-general performance computing.

The 4-way cluster created by AB Open is centered on four SiFive HiFive Unmatched developer motherboards each and every that includes a Flexibility U740 system-on-chip for compute responsibilities as nicely as a SiFive HiFive1 Rev. B growth board delivering handle of 4 relays utilized to electric power on/off the 4 boards. Each HiFive Unmatched motherboard with the Independence U740 SoC is an person system that can run high-stage running systems and is geared up with PCIe 3. x8/16 and M.2 slots as very well as GbE and USB ports.
