Apples & Oranges

RISC-V is an open, royalty-free instruction set architecture, unlike Intel's x86 the ARM chip architecture which requires a license to implement recent processor designs.

RISC-V and x86 are completely different markets, the first is for embedded and the second is definitely not. RISC-V is punching it out with ARM, period.
