Will RISC-V be a contender now that Nvidia is buying Arm?
Nvidia and Arm promised the ARM architecture would continue to be available for licensing, but you could see other players looking for a backup plan. Western Digital, Nvidia, Google, and others have leveraged RISC-V as part of their portfolio. Whether the home base changes from one country to another, it doesn’t matter to RISC-V. RISC-V doesn’t have a geography or entity with a hold on it. VentureBeat: I know Nvidia was very excited about taking Arm into the datacenter and into AI, more on the high end. There are some other institutes that have started to come to fruition around RISC-V. We continue to see a lot of great interest there.
