European Program to Develop Supercomputing Chips Begins to Take Shape… including RISC-V!

The European Processor Initiative (EPI), an ambitious program to develop a pair of chips for domestic supercomputers, is poised to change the way Europe does HPC. And although the work is still very much in its early stages, it looks like the Europeans have selected their preferred processor architectures: Arm and RISC-V.

Launched in March 2018 by the European Commission, the EPI’s overall aim is to develop domestically produced low-power microprocessors for the European market.
