Unmatched: RISC-V mini-ITX PC board from HiFive

HiFive Unmatched ushers in a new era of RISC-V Linux development with a platform in a PC form factor. Powered by the SiFive Freedom U740, a high-performance multi-core, 64-bit dual-issue, superscalar RISC-V processor.

This is a more affordable replacement for the Unleashed board and has M.2 slots for an NVMe drive & wireless card along with an x16 PCIe slot.

Interesting... I wonder how much it costs...

The projected price is $665 but that doesn't include a power supply. The old Unleashed board cost ~$3,000 with the expansion so the Unmatched board is pretty good value. I might even buy one myself...

That's way better than 3000$, still not great,

but yeah, its an improvement...

Though, 665$ is still twice as expensive as some intel or amd processors. Heh...

Still, it has modern security and virtually no backdoors so far to my knowledge, so thats a plus.
