RISC-V 3D GPU / CPU / VPU

Note: this is a hybrid CPU, VPU and GPU. It is not, as many news articles are implying, a "dedicated exclusive GPU". The option exists to create a stand-alone GPU product. It is being designed to be a complete all-in-one processor (System-on-a-Chip).

We seek investors, sponsors, engineers and potential customers, who are interested in the creation and use of an entirely libre low-power mobile class system-on-a-chip. Comparative benchmark performance, pincount and price is the Allwinner A64, except that the power budget target is 2.5 watts.
