Milk-V Pioneer is an innovative mainboard/workstation designed for developers, built on the powerful SOPHON SG2042 processor and packaged in a standard microATX form factor. With its PC-like interface and industrial compatibility, Milk-V Pioneer is the high-performance RISC-V personal computer the world has been waiting for. Milk-V Pioneer doesn’t skimp on hardware (e.g., 64-core CPU @ 2 GHz, 128 GB DDR4 RAM @ 3200 MHz, 1 TB PCIe 3.0 SSD, and more), comes in both mainboard and full PC versions, and is competitively priced with comparable x86 machines. Milk-V Pioneer allows developers to run RISC-V web servers, network switches, desktop workstations, colocated servers, and more. With Milk-V’s great performance and open toolchains as a foundation, native RISC-V development has never been easier or more accessible.
