Meet the VisionFive 2

 VisionFive (Revision 1) is the first single-board computer based on RISC-V Architecture by StarFive. Now, VisionFive 2 is the enhanced version of VisionFive, with higher processing power and a lower price.


Check out the unboxing and 1st review of VisionFive 2 by Lander Tee:


VisionFive 2 is the world’s first high-performance RISC-V single-board computer (SBC) with an integrated GPU. Compared with its last generation, VisionFive 2 has been fully upgraded with significant improvements in the processor work frequency, multimedia processing capabilities, scalability, etc. Its superior performance and reasonable price make VisionFive 2 the best affordable RISC-V development board ever.
