Together, these enhancements provide unparalleled scalability, security, and interoperability for a broad range of RISC-V Vector extensions.
If you are looking for an alternative to traditional SIMD style architecture, the new version of SiFive Intelligence X280 is definitely a good choice.
Thanks to its energy efficiency and intuitive programming model, this unique combination has made the SiFive Intelligence X280 a favorite among customers since its general availability in April 2021.
In the past six months alone, X280-related designs have won double-digit wins in a variety of data-driven application scenarios, including AI thrust, image processing, data center acceleration, and automotive.
Chris Jones, VP of Product at SiFive, added:
We couldn’t believe the market’s response to the X280, a product well suited for modern workloads and vector processing needs, and RISC-V was picking up momentum when it was introduced.
The new enhancements to the X280 are a direct result of listening to and working with customers and have been designed around the world. In addition, the software ecosystem that is expanding around the number of RISC-V is also growing exponentially.
It is reported that X280 SiFive Intelligence X280 is a RISC-V processor that supports multi-core and multi-cluster, fully supports RISC-V
Vector Extensions Standard and SiFive Intelligence Extensions, optimized for AI/ML computing at the edge.
In addition, the X280 is ideal for applications requiring high throughput, single-threaded performance, and power-constrained applications such as AR/VR, sensor hubs, IVI systems, IP cameras, digital cameras, gaming rigs, and more.
