High Performance RISC-V Processors

Balanced Performance

With the ever-expanding SiFive portfolio, RISC-V has rapidly evolved from its early market traction within the embedded processor market to take on the high-performance application space. SiFive is leading the way with our Performance family, a broad range of feature-rich-OS application processors, from the entry-level, dual-issue multistage pipeline P270 all the way up to the latest out-of-order processors.

Where power, footprint, and cost constraints generally override the need for high performance. Add to these constraints the complexity of delivering new RISC-V technology that stands shoulder to shoulder with advanced proprietary architectures, and it is clear that a large category of processor consumers has, before now, gone underserved without a variety of high-performance choices from the market.

The SiFive Performance family of RISC-V processors is designed for maximum throughput, while preserving power efficiency for workloads as varied as branch-intensive operating systems, and multimedia processing. Ranging from 8-stage, dual-issue, in-order architectures equipped with 256-bit vector engines, to advanced three and four-issue out-of-order processors, with and without vector compute capabilities, with best-in-class industry benchmark performance, the SiFive Performance Family represents the future of V compute.
