IP suite and Armv9 Cortex CPUs are part of Arm’s Total Compute
Arm has created Total Compute solutions, assembling hardware IP, physical IP, software, tools and standards based the recently introduced Armv9 architecture.
There are Armv9 CPU cores designed for consumer devices, including laptops, smart TVs, and mobile gaming. Arm Cortex-X2 is Arm’s most powerful CPU to date, delivering 30 per cent performance improvements compared with today’s flagship Android smartphones, says the company. It is also scalable across smartphones and laptops.
Arm Cortex-A710 is also based on Armv9 and has a 30 per cent energy efficiency gain and 10 per cent uplift in performance compared to the Cortex-A78.
Another announcement is the Arm Cortex-A510, which delivers 35 per cent performance improvements and increases machine learning (ML) performance, for use in smartphone, home and wearable devices.
Described as the backbone of the Armv9-A CPU cluster is a new DynamIQ Shared Unit, the DSU-110, which is scalable and supports up to eight Cortex-X2 CPUs, together with security and ML features.
Arm also announced that all cores for mobile applications will be 64-bit only by 2023, with support for all apps from Arm’s partners worldwide.
The latest CoreLink CI-700 Coherent Interconnect and CoreLink NI-700 Network-on-Chip Interconnect work seamlessly with Arm CPU, GPU and NPU IP to enable system enhancements. CoreLink CI-700 and CoreLink NI-700 have hardware level support for Armv9-A features, such as memory tagging extension (MTE), and support increased security, improved bandwidth and latency.
