ARM kills off its anti-RISC-V smear site after own staff revolt

Arm has taken offline its website attacking rival processor architecture RISC-V within days of it going live – after its own staff objected to the underhand tactic.

The site – – was created at the end of June, and attempted to smear open-source RISC-V, listing five reasons why Arm cores are a better choice over its competitor’s designs. However, the stunt backfired, with folks in the tech industry, and within the company’s own ranks, slamming the site as a cheap shot and an attack on open source.

Good on ARM’s own employees for speaking up.
