@yuki Without much useful instructions its not very fast at practical use.
The committee really needs to fully finish standardization and concede on inelegant but necessary ISA instructions.

@lynne
What instructions, exactly?

@yuki Agh, I wish I could find a CoreMark score for the M1, but the EEMBC database doesn't have any listed. Still, the numbers do seem to make sense:

eembc.org/coremark/scores.php

(Irksomely, they don't list score per core, though that's understandable given their embedded focus)

It sounds like a similar story - without the masses of junk x86 needs to run fast, ARM and RISC-V have a lot more potential, not just faster - or at least competitive - but with far less power.

Keep an eye on Imagination Technologies - they're working hard on RISC-V options, with plenty of design background.

@yuki wow!

@yuki dependent on the distance. you may use less power but the radius will be 10cm.
