Well sipeed is apparently targeting a mister replacement with the gowin arora v 138k + Andes risc v cores
Their dev tooling is kind of meh, and Altera LEs aren't directly comparable to gowin LES, but it does look quite interesting for half the price and 138k le.
Would need a carrier with HDMI TX (12.5gbps serdes so 4k120 works lol) and low latency ram unless there's a direct to logic bus vs axi
But that's relatively easy to do: maybe HYPERRAM/rldram and ti tdp1204 on a USB c pd carrier with breakouts for controller gpio.
Promising and much cheaper than kria. Supposed to release in August.
Looks pretty interesting. Supposed to be released next month. With the 3 BTB connectors you could potentially design a board where you just plug in the FPGA + Risc V SoC either directly or via some ribbon cables and perhaps even design a portable device. $120 for the system on module is pretty cheap.
here it is in its own PCIe dock which is overkill and adds $195 to the price.
