- Arm unveils its first-ever public CPU roadmap and performance numbers
- Client CPU’s expected to deliver year-over-year performance improvements of >15% for compute through 2020
- Arm positioned for laptop share gain with roadmap designed for 5G always-on, always-connected devices
Advances in Arm technology have put desktop-class PC performance into our smartphones, fundamentally changing how we use technology in our daily lives. This is a direct result of Arm’s annual cadence for introducing new world-class CPU designs, which have delivered double-digit gains every year in instructions-per-clock (IPC) performance since 2013. The introduction of Arm’s latest CPU design, the Cortex-A76, was a milestone for the industry, delivering 35% gains in performance compared to previous generations.
Today is another milestone for Arm because for the first time, we are publicly disclosing forward-looking compute performance data and a CPU roadmap for Arm’s Client Line of Business from now through 2020. In my blog, I share important details about the client roadmap including:
- The follow-up to Cortex-A76 will be codenamed ‘Deimos’ and available to Arm partners in 2018. ‘Deimos’ is based on Arm DynamIQ technology, optimized for the latest 7nm nodes, and is expected to deliver a 15+ percent increase in compute performance.
- In 2019, the CPU codenamed ‘Hercules’ will be available to Arm partners. ‘Hercules’, also based on DynamIQ technology, will be optimized for both the latest 5nm and 7nm nodes and continues the trajectory of increased compute performance, while also improving power and area efficiency by 10 percent (in addition to the efficiency gains achievable from the 5nm process node).
