As for challenging x86...eh, I donít think so, for RISC-V. At least not primarily; itíll insert itself into the market in other segments first.

Eating ARM's lunch in the super low end most likely.

What do you get by joining us?

In the beginning we were a sweat equity organization; no one received a salary; instead, contributors received units that converted to stock when we incorporated. At incorporation 45 people had worked on the Mill and became shareholders. After incorporation we are still a sweat equity organization; we now use a stock option system for sweat equity, and we still pay no salaries. Reward for work today is comparable to what it was before incorporation.

LOL they still can't attract VC so they can't afford to pay anyone

Every time someone tries VLIW architectures for anything other than DSPs, it ends up being too much of a pain in the rear end to be worth it.

Boy, are you guys going to have egg on your faces... a little birdie just told me that the Mill guys are in advanced negotiations to license the Intel Sufficiently Smart Compilerô from the Itanium team.

Perhaps they're hoping HP will buy them out so the Machine can incorporate the Mill.

Arenít the Tensilica Xtensas VLIW? Or is more that they are super customizable to add on instructions and people often add VLIW type stuff.

Somedays I wish I worked on projects with big enough budgets where playing with custom SIP is a requirement. Partially out of morbid curiosity as to what the toolchain and collateral is like for those cores and parts.

If those are the AMD TrueAudio thingies they could go up to 2x VLIW for DSP work.
