Will Intel abandon x86 for RISC-V for its next-gen supercomputing chips?

Intel and the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) have declared a €400 million expense in a new lab devoted to producing RISC-V processors.

The facility will target on constructing RISC-V-primarily based CPUs to power significant-efficiency computing (HPC) programs, as properly as specialised chips for artificial intelligence and autonomous autos.
