Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Are there any dual-GBE, PoE-capable SBCs?

Chinese Academy of Sciences releases "Xiangshan", a high performance open source RISC-V processor that runs Linux
5 projects | /r/linux | 26 Jun 2021
Just found https://github.com/darklife/darkriscv whose (incomplete) core is surprisingly short. Which means you won't have to learn a lot. You can run it in simulator or on one of the listed fpga boards.

If you are interested in high performance look into vroom , c910 and xianghan, maybe you could adopt one of them.
Open-source high-performance RISC-V processor

I see that many open riscv cores use Scala that generate verilog. Is this common practice?

Here’s a good example of one: https://github.com/OpenXiangShan/XiangShan
How Much Would It Cost For A Truly Open Source RISC-V SOC?

There are already open source designs that are reportedly close to older ARM smartphone design in term of performance (c910 and xiangshang).
RISC-V Pushes into the Mainstream

> Because at this point they have more to gain than by keeping them proprietary. RISC-V is not yet overall competitive with ARM. So it's not like these RISC-V cores could be commercialized that successfully. Keeping them open probably makes further development faster.
This open source core is about equivalent to a Cortex-X1. https://github.com/OpenXiangShan/XiangShan

Then you can help open source hardware designs like xiangshan or vroom.
server/workstation-grade HPC RISC-V microprocessors?
3 projects | /r/RISCV | 20 Aug 2022
There is vroom , c910 iirc is used by alibaba for servers, xiangshan i think aims at ARM smartphone chromebook performance level (like the c910).
RISC-V only takes 12 years to achieve the milestone of 10 billion cores, 5 years faster than ARM.

To me at least the fact that the ISA is royalty free means that open source cores can be developed (Some did that target high performance smartphone and server use cases).

Also would be hard competing with ARM A73 class open source riscv cores like XiangShan and the T-head which are out-of-order, superscalar, and multicore capable.
