Instead of quoting "100 GMACs at 1W", it would be more interesting to see figures (perf & power) from usecase pov -- audio/speech algos (which are less data-hungry) and video/imaging algos (which are more data hungry). Then only we can understand how viable is the chip from product pov.

Rick misquoted what I said to him. I said 160GFLOPS ( not 125MFLOPS) which is also publicly available info.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
