Yesterday, Pine64 made an announcement about the Star64 Single Board Computer (SBC) prototype. The company mentioned this SBC will be powered with the RISC-V based StarFive JH7110 64-bit processor.

The processor integrated on the Star64 is the same one found on the recently launched StarFive VisionFive 2 board.
