Mostly people have not heard about the RISC V, it is the exciting new hardware development and is fostered primarily by the Chinese Government. It can be done to reduce the domestic reliance on CPUs and the GPUs from the Western technology companies. The end users can’t notice anything but RISC V have an certain impact on the Global smart phone market. In the year 2022, as the most vendors adopt the open hardware philosophy.
RISC V development is Chinese company Sipeed that reveals earlier this month, that it was already running Android 10 on the Alibaba or T head RISC V platform the open sourced XuanTie C910. But users just keep in mind that the platform has only been shown running Android 10.
Now Nothing on Android 12 that is already main stream. It is based on dual core processor that is clocked at 1.2 GHz with the Vivante 3D GPU and the 4 GB LPDR4. It means that it is probably going to target the entry level segment of the market for example Cheap Smart phones.
It is suggested by the spieed that the RV64 mobile will come next year, and it is good news in the spirit of competition. This phone will be more powerful than the same quad core A73 processors and that put it directly against the Qualcomm snapdragon 663 or 662 and the both launched in 2020.
But the questions still remains that, where will spieed get the IP to build accompanying 5G or LTE radio technology. The 2nd question arises: why would anyone chose to go for RISC V, rather than sticking with Arm?
Before 10 years the company Called, Ainovo released the RISC V Android tablet with the unfortunate name Ainol Novo 7. It runs Android 4.0 ice sandwich, and it is powered by an Ingenic semi conductor JZ4770. But sadly it never really caught up as, AMD raced towards world domination.
