China launches pre-orders for first RISC-V laptop

Chinese companies DeepComputing and Xcalibyte have begun accepting pre-orders for the first laptop that runs on a processor with RISC-V architecture. The Roma laptop is designed for developers who create and test software for the RISC-V platform.

Manufacturers talked about a “system on module” (SOM) that combines a RISC-V chip with four processing cores, a graphics accelerator, and a neural processing unit (NPU) to accelerate the execution of artificial intelligence and machine learning operations.

The companies plan to release two versions of the laptop: Roma Pro and Roma Standard with 12nm and 28nm chips, respectively. In this case, SOM can be upgraded.

The device supports up to 16 GB of LPDDR4/LPDDR4X RAM, you can also install an SSD up to 256 GB.

The authors of the development stated that it is compatible with most Linux variants.

You can pre-order the laptop here. The first hundred buyers were promised an NFT token. Deliveries of Roma will begin at the end of the year.

China is actively developing the RISC-X architecture, which is based on RISC-V. It is supposed to be open and free.

Meanwhile, China's Loongson Technology developed its Loongson Architecture or LoongArch. In 2021, the company introduced the 3A5000/LS3A5000 chip with a quad-core processor on a 12nm process for laptops.
