RISC-V is an open-standard (or open-source, depending on who you ask) instruction set architecture (ISA) for CPUs that was first established in 2014, maintained by RISC-V International. The basic premise for RISC-V is that any company can take the ISA and make their own CPUs, bypassing the closed ecosystems of Arm, AMD, and Intel. Since its debut, RISC-V has grown extremely quickly, with 16 billion cores sold forecasted by 2030.
