Esperanto, a company run by The Case for RISC co-authors Dave Ditzel and Dave Patterson, has announced its first RISC-V products – including a 4,112-core processor aimed at high-performance artificial intelligence (AI) applications.

Detailed in full on WikiChip Fuse, Esperanto’s aim is to produce three intellectual property (IP) core families based on the open RISC-V architecture: ET-Maxion, a high-performance core designed as an alternative to Arm; ET-Minion, a high-efficiency core; and ET-Graphics, the first RISC-V-based graphics processor.

Each will be implemented on Taiwan Semiconductor (TSMC)’s 7nm process node, the company has claimed, and will be available in hardware and licensable IP forms.
