As can be seen from the official website of RISC-V International, Tencent Technology has officially joined RISC-V International and is listed in the Premier Members row.
The open-source RISC-V is an alternative to Intel’s proprietary X86 and UK Arm architectures, and RISC-V International is a not-for-profit organization that manages the open-standard RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), associated specifications, and community of interested parties. RISC-V combines a modular technology approach with an open, free licensing model so that anyone can benefit from RISC-V contributions and resulting optimizations.
Premier members of RISC-V International have an annual membership fee of up to $250,000, but enjoy seats on the RISC-V International Board of Directors and Technical Steering Committee. In various voting and activities, the top members of RISC-V International have the largest voting rights, and among the top members, the number of members from China occupies an absolute majority.
