6,000 RISC-V cores on Xilinx FPGA break the CoreScore world record

The new world record for the densest arrangement of RISC-V cores (by CoreScore benchmark) Is achieved by pairing 6,000 RISC-V SERV cores with the VCU128 board, one of Xilinx’s most powerful FPGA designs.The benchmark test simulates how many SERV cores can be deployed on a single piece of silicon, and Xilinx’s Virtex UltraScale+ VCU128 FPGA can be suitable Up to 6,000 SERV cores Through its internal reconfiguration. The previous record holder has a total of 5,087 cores hosted on Xilinx’s VCU118.

FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) is a peculiar piece of hardware because they have very few fixed function elements. Instead, they are built to be programmable on the fly (or in the field), mimicking the transistor arrangement defined by the programmer. This essentially makes FPGAs our closest product to adaptive processing electronics, changing at any time based on the workload at hand (this is a simplified explanation).
