The development board, which will be available in summer 2023, is powered by the Intel Horse Creek SoC, which is based on the Intel 4 process and includes a SiFive Performance P550 Core Complex quad-core application processor. The processor supports chaotic pipeline, RISC-V RV64GBC ISA, on-board DDR5-5600 and PCIe Gen5.
With 2x PCIe expansion slots, 1/10 GbE networking, USB 3, on-board graphics and remote management-ready interface (OCP DC-SCM), it is claimed to be suitable for developing desktop and rack-based build/test/deployment servers for RISC-V software development.
