Looking Towards the Future: FreeBSD on the RISC-V Architecture

Since its first release for the i386 processor in 1993, FreeBSD has been ported to run on a wide array of different CPU architectures and platforms. In this article, we will look at the youngest of these architectures on which FreeBSD currently runs: the RISC-V instruction set architecture.

RISC-V: The New Architecture on the Block

RISC-V is a relatively new chip architecture that is quickly making its way in the tech world and is proving to be quite a rival for the existing well-known architectures.
Today, we will look at the history of RISC-V and how it differs from the other offerings.

FreeBSD arm64 Performance – Getting more out of your FreeBSD Deployment

With the release of FreeBSD 13, arm64 has been elevated to Tier 1 status. FreeBSD support for arm64 has grown steadily since the architecture was incorporated in 2015 based on work supported by the community, ARM and Marvell (then Cavium). Learn about processor performance, hardware factors, and Big.Little in our latest article.

The Next Level – FreeBSD on arm64 In The Cloud

FreeBSD in the cloud

FreeBSD/arm64 is the FreeBSD port to the 64-bit ARM architecture, also known as AArch64 or ARMv8. All supported FreeBSD releases include support for ARMv8 and there are many packages and ports (3rd party applications) available to support the software you normally deploy with FreeBSD.

Tracing the History of ARM and FreeBSD


Did you know that during the course of the day, you have spent more time interacting with Arm processors than any other architectures. And FreeBSD can take advantage of this technology. Let’s take a look at the Arm architecture.
