The chip is capable of running at a high CoreMark while consuming very low amounts of power, making it suitable for mobile phones

Here’s presenting a microprocessor having a high performance/power of 64-bit RISC-V core at 110,000 CoreMarks/Watt. It was created after completing the feat of producing a RISC-V device that was able to run at up to 5 GHz while consuming as little as 70mW. On the CoreMark benchmark, the chip achieved 13,000 CoreMarks, making it quite fast. To attain this level of performance, the company called Micro Magic, which designed and developed the product, utilised its EDA tools with a small team in record time.

At the same time, the company achieved another milestone by reaching a CoreMark of over 8,000 CoreMarks at 3GHz while consuming less than 70mW.

When compared with existing parts processors in the 3GHz to 5GHz range, the 64-bit RISC-V CPU provides a robust performance of more than 10x than any CISC/RISC/MIPS implementation.

“For applications like cell phones, it makes a big difference whether one can use their phone for a whole day, or several, on a single charge,” says Lee Tavrow, PhD and co-founder of Micro Magic, “Typically low power devices are also much lower performance, but with our IP, we allow our customer to have both the world’s fastest speed at 5Ghz and lowest power at 70mW and 3GHz in the same device.”
