I don’t see a third party board being a rival to the RPI in all domains yet. I think it’s gonna be hard to beat the RPi regarding user support and HATs / hardware built for it. Altough, if the board happen to be 100% compatible, that could be nice, but then it’s just a RPI…

I’d be extremely happy with a RISC-V board that’s a straight up Raspberry Pi clone, something RISC-V and affordable is a win for open source ISAs. Even more happy if the processor design itself is open source (I don’t know if the chip mentioned in the article will be though).

Doesn’t really look comparable. The picture doesn’t show any ports, so it wouldn’t do many things the people usually do with Pis.

RISC-V is only expensive because there aren’t a lot of people making them and because it’s still not mature so you’re paying for R&D costs, more so than ARM. With time and development this will almost certainly change.
