RISCV is a rival computing architecture for Arm and has been gaining momentum in the past few years. It received a major boost recently when Google announced it Android will support this new architecture.
Although there is still a lot to do before RISC-V Android smartphones are available, we wanted to know if anyone would be willing to buy one. We asked you to answer the survey last week. Here are the results.
Are you planning to buy a RISC V Android phone?
After publishing the companion article last week, nearly 1,900 votes in this poll had been counted. Which was the most popular choice? 51.37% said they would buy a RISCV phone if the current one was on par. an armexisting smart phones.
This is understandable as many people don’t care about the architecture of their phones as long as it works. RISC-V can be used with a variety CPUs and hardware that is inexpensive, as it is open-source.
45.68% said they would buy a RISC–V Android smartphone. This shows that some people would prefer a RISCV phone to an Arm-based Android smartphone.
Only 2.95 percent of respondents said that they would not buy a RISCV Android phone. While chips based on the new architecture are a step ahead of the Arm-based silicon, Arm chips offer more features.
- Rick: Welcome to our discounted set of instructions. I expect RISCV to challenge incumbents across all aspects of the computing ecosystem, from low-power to higher performance. I also patiently await the arrival of any of my development boards.
- While I appreciate Google taking such a bold stand here, I don’t trust Google to stick with hardware. A widely used architecture would provide some justification to continue compiling to bytecode.
