For those who don't know, CPUs by INTEL, AMD, ARM and so forth are closed-source - you don't know for sure what is inside the CPU or what it does internally. Only select companies that sign strict Non Disclosure Agreements get any kind of detailed insight into what is actually going on inside these CPUs. This creates SIGNIFICANT PRIVACY RISKS for people who buy systems with closed-source CPUs. RISC-V on the other hand is an OPEN-SOURCE - public and transparent - CPU architecture design. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RISC-V It targets everything from smartphones, tablets and PCs to large SuperComputers and has been in development for about a decade. The very first RISC-V LINUX PCs containting the brand new processors are now being made, mostly for enthusiasts and developers. https://venturebeat.com/2020/10/29/sifive-unveils-plan-for-linux-pcs-based-on-risc-v-processors/ RISC-V means that you KNOW MUCH MORE ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON INSIDE YOUR COMPUTING DEVICE than was the case with close-source CPUs.
