As promised, SiFive has unveiled a new computer featuring the company’s SiFive FU740 processor based on RISC-V architecture.
The company, which has been making RISC-V chips for several years, is positioning its new SiFive HiFive Unmatched computer as a professional development board for those interested in working with RISC-V. But unlike the company’s other HiFive boards, the new Unmatched model is designed so that it can be easily integrated into a standard PC.
The whole thing is powered by a SiFive FU740 system-on-a-chip which is a 64-bit processor that features four SiFive U74 CPU cores and a single SiFive S7 embedded CPU cores.

This is really called FU? I’m not sure how I’d feel about buying something when the company calls it that.
Reminds me of the Huawei Kunpeng 920. That’s already at 7nm (unfortunately they can’t get any more made by TSMC). U74 is 16nm and U84 is 7nm (and has 3x the performance of U74).
