The RISC-V Architecture Ships 10 Billion Cores in 12 Years.

In an announcement at Embedded World, Calista Redmond, CEO of RISC-V International, said there are currently ten billion RISC-V cores in use.

ARM RISC-V architecture has shipped 10 billion cores and is expected to overtake x86 and Arm architecture in the future

RISC-V is an open-source, free instruction set architecture (ISA).

Instructions can be accessed either in 32-bit or 64-bit address space, and they can be used for a variety of tasks.

The road to ten billion was not an easy one. It is reported that seventeen years of trial and error for the ARM architecture took to achieve the milestone in 2008.  

On the other hand, RISC-V completed 10 billion in just twelve years.

By 2025, 80 billion RISC-V processor cores are expected to be in use, according to Redmond.
