    Several press releases from RED Semiconductor:

    "Augmenting the OpenPOWER ISA first developed by IBM, RED Semiconductor is using the draft SVP64 implementation of Vector+1 to design a family of new microprocessors to be marketed as their Vantage family, of which the first device a 2-core will be the Vantage-Luna."

    "Extending the POWER ISA first developed by IBM, RED Semiconductor is using the Libre-SOC Draft SVP64 implementation of Vector+1 to design its ‘Vantage’ family of new microprocessors which will be marketed globally for high performance computing applications. "

    "RED Semiconductor is working with industry partners to accelerate the implementation of a 1-core ‘Vantage’ cipher-accelerator microprocessor chipset [...]. Planned for first-customer shipments in early 2024, the ‘Vantage1’ chip will be targeted at data security and privacy applications [...]."

    And from the homepage:
    "Supporting native Power ISA and translated x86 and ARM instructions, SVP64 will enable developers to break free from the constraints of traditional processing platforms, with a rapid conversion to SVP64 hardware and code architecture. [...] Advanced microprocessor chip-set optimized for OS-based compute-intensive applications: - Initial 2 and 8 core variants will scale to 1k+ cores"
