ARM Chips Set To Take On AI
Mobile chipmaking giant ARM – British born but now owned by Japan’s Softbank – is preparing to unveil a new generation of CPUs and GPUs at Taiwan’s large Computex event, which opens this week.
They include the Cortex-A75, a new flagship mobile processor design, with a claimed 22 percent improvement in performance over the previous A73 mode. It is also said to be set up to tackle the challenges of onboard AI and machine learning.
ARM’s Dynamiq chip changes will also be on show. They are said to include a redesigned memory subsystem and tweaks to how CPU caches work, which has led to a doubling of memory streaming performance on the A55 relative to the A53 preceding it.
