HiFive Unleashed is the ultimate RISC-V developer board. Featuring the world’s first and only Linux-capable, multi-core, RISC-V processor – the Freedom U540 – the HiFive Unleashed ushers in a brand new era for RISC-V.

The revolution has started. We can’t wait to see what the world unleashes.
And it is a bargain, because it is $1 less than $1000.

Thanks for the info. I had been checking the SiFive site every week or so, looking for the announcement, since they said it would happen in the first quarter. I had heard rumors of up to $3k - which is pretty high for the hobbyist level, so the news that it's less than $1k is great. THANKS.

Why would anyone spend $1k on hardware like that?
