HPE, not HP

Hi, IMHO if it's Hewlett Packard Enterprise that's involved - the title should state HPE, not HP. Otherwise it is a bit misleading. ;)

1. Actually RISC-V supports 32, 64 and 128 bit adress spaces. There are actually two reserach efforts that are using the 128 bit option. So it is not a "only on paper" feature ! Useful for memory mapped sparse address spaces that storage folks use.

2. OO is orthogonal to the ISA but RISC-V does make OO much easier to implement. Not having artifacts like condition codes makes a micro-architceture designer's life a lot easier. Two OO implementations have been released.

Nice article Rick.

 

> The RISC-V instruction set supports 32- and 64-bit designs as well as vector and out-of-order extensions.

 

One point of clarification though - there's no out-of-order extension. Rather RISC-V doesn't make OoO difficult to implement.
