Intel showed the Horse Creek platform with a RISC-V processor, which is manufactured using the Intel 4 process technology.
This solution is not developed by Intel. This is a product of SiFive, but it was released as part of the Intel Foundry Services (IFS) program at the facilities of the processor giant. Recall that this program was launched to expand the company’s business, and within the framework of IFS Intel acts as a contract manufacturer of semiconductor products.
Horse Creek is a single-board PC based on the SiFive P550 RISC-V quad-core processor. The crystal itself has an area of only 4 x 4 mm. The platform supports PCIe 5.0 and DDR5-5600. The board also has 8 GB of RAM and a large number of different connectors and interfaces. But for now, this is a non-serial product, so developers can make changes.
It is worth noting that Intel itself does not yet have a single product manufactured using the Intel 4 process technology, and even the first CPUs based on Intel 7 are expected only at the end of next year. On the other hand, a platform based on the RISC-V processor certainly cannot be compared with modern Intel CPUs.
