Announcing HiFive Unmatched

Nearly three years ago, we launched HiFive Unleashed, the world’s first RISC-V-based, Linux-capable development board. Today, we’re excited to announce its successor, HiFive Unmatched. Whereas three years ago, HiFive Unleashed could be paired with an FPGA-based expansion board to form a fully functional (if cumbersome) RISC-V desktop machine, today’s HiFive Unmatched is a single-board solution in a Mini-ITX form factor that is both more powerful and less expensive. RISC-V has come a long way and, with your support, we will push it ever further.
