Anyone who follows the industry during the last decade will hear about the Army. We know the company best because it is a means of providing and providing architectures, as well as projects of processors that provide virtually all modern mobile devices. Last 7-5 years, in particular, we observed the advancement of the meteorological properties of mobile SoC, which can be found in our smartphones and tablets
However, Arm's ambitions are far beyond the limits of mobile and embedded devices. The overall computing market is much larger, and, looking at things in the business sense, high-tech devices such as servers and their infrastructure are much more profitable. Therefore, for a successful processor designer like Arm, which is still on the rise, it is a very lucrative market in order to strive for the current Intel leader can profess.
For this, while Arm was wildly successful in mobile and embedded, anything that requires more performance has by now been unattainable or has significant drawbacks. During the last decade, we have heard about numerous prophecies about how products based on architecture will bring the server and infrastructure to the market at any time "by storm." Over the past few years, we have seen how different suppliers are trying to bring this end to the end: unfortunately, the results of the first generation of products were less successful, and therefore, although some did better than others, the server ecosystem first encountered a lot of difficulties.
A New Focus on Performance
Although Arm has been successful in mobile devices for quite some time, the overall performance of their designs often leaves something desirable. As a result, the company is pursuing a new focus on performance that covers everything from mobile to servers. Working to achieve this goal, 201
For the release of such products as the Snapdragon 8CX, we already had our hands on the first mobile devices with Cortex A76 and very independently tested all the requirements for Arm performance and efficiency.
And then, of course, is Neoverse, the star of today's Arm announcements. Neoverse Arm tries to make for servers and infrastructure what it is already doing for its mobile business, significantly increasing its productivity and increasing its competitiveness. We'll get into Neoverse much deeper at one point, but in the cotext, this is one part of much more effort for Arm.
All of these new microarchitecture are important for Arm because they represent points of entry on the market. Now productivity is approaching high-performance players such as Intel and AMD, and Arm is confident in its ability to maintain significant annual improvements by 25-30% – significantly exceeding the pace at which existing suppliers can go through.
The point of overlapping the server: the effects of the events of the last several months
The last few months have been extremely exciting for the Arm Setter ecosystem. Last year on Hotchips, we reviewed the Fujitsu session with the new A64FX HPC processor, which represents not only the switch from SPARC to ARMv8, but also the first chip for the implementation of the new SVE (Scalable Vector Extensions) Added to the Arm architecture.
Thunderum2 from Cavium has seen extremely high performance, making the new processor the first to compete with Intel and AMD – with partners like GIGABYTE offering full server-based system solutions based on new ones
More recently, we saw that Huawei unveiled its new Kunspeng 920 server chip that promises to be the most productive Arm Server processor
The big commonality between the three products is that each represents the efforts of individual vendors. on the implementation of a special microarchitecture based on the architectural license of ARMv8. In fact, this raises the question: what are their own plans for Arm on the server market and infrastructure? Well for those who are watching closely, today's coverage of the new Neoverse line should not come as complete surprise as the company originally announced the brand and the road-map back in October.
Introducing the Neoverse N1 & E1 Platform: Enabling the Ecosystem
Today's announcement is the creation of an ecosystem; we will consider in more detail two new "platforms" that will be at the center of Arm's infrastructure strategy for the next few years, the Neoverse N1 and E1 platform:
Today's announcement of the Neoverse N1 platform sheds light on the fact that Arm raised the issue in the first of October, detailing exactly what "Ares" and how the server / infrastructure counter-part t to architecture The Cortex A76 will bring significant productivity improvements to the Arm Infrastructure ecosystem.
