Details in a recent talk:
VROOM! A NEW HIGH-END RISC-V IMPLEMENTATION
Screenshot from 2021-10-14 10-51-03

  • Goal: Very high end RISC-V implementation – cloud server class
  • Out of order, super scalar, speculative
  • RV64-IMAFDCHB(V)
  • Up to 8 IPC (instructions per clock) peak, goal ~4 average on ALU heavy work
  • 2-way simultaneous multithreading capable
  • Multi-core
  • Currently boots Linux on an AWS-FPGA instance
  • Early (low) dhrystone numbers: ~2 DMips/MHz - still a work in progress. Goal ~5 with fully working BTC
  • GPL3 – dual licensing possible

Really impressive specs! would love to see it in a beagleboard soon?
