RISC rides again: New RISC-V architecture hopes to battle ARM and x86 by being totally open source

Prototype RISC-V chip
A new instruction set by the original creator of MIPS aims to reinvent the ultra-low power, high-efficiency processor — and to do so with an architecture that’s fundamentally open and available to anyone who wants to build a chip. Can that approach succeed in the modern era?
