Able to take on IBM
A Japanese ARM-based supercomputer has taken the top spot in the bi-annual Top500 supercomputer speed ranking.
Will it be as reliable as Apple Maps?
Apple has been telling the world+dog how it no longer needs Intel for its Macs and can safely move users to ARM based mobile chips.
Has Allen Wu been fired?
ARM has clashed publicly with its Chinese operation over the antics of the group's Chinese CEO. ARM UK insists Allen Wu has been fired for failing to disclose conflicts of interest, but he says he is still in charge.
24 cores, 25 percent perf up
ARM Mali GPUs are the number one shipping graphics processor covering gaming, XR, AI, and entertainment. ARM shared with us the updated GPU roadmap and introduced Mali-G78.
Neural processing makes better photors
All of a sudden, everyone became a better photographer, and this is due more to machine learning and neural processing units in modern phones, rather than people mastering the skill.
High-performance PC SoCs too
Qualcomm introduced Prime core clocked rest from the cluster with Snapdragon 865, and Huawei had two higher clock performance cores in Kirin 990. With that in mind, ARM has introduced the Cortex-X custom program. The result is up to 30 percent peak performance compared to previous generation Cortex A77 cores.
20 percent faster 5nm optimized
The next generation of phones mostly expected in early 2021, will come powered by Cortex A78 new core. The new Cortex A78 will improve performance by up to 20 percent in the same power envelope.
Free access to its chip portfolio
ARM is hoping to imporove the use of its chips by offering up access to around 75 percent of its chip portfolio for free to qualified startups.
Bloomberg dusts off another old story
Apple plans to sell Mac computers with its own main processors by next year based on the chip designs currently used in its iPhones and iPads.
As Apple settled with Imagination
Huawei, for the most part, relies on ARM IP. It uses the ARM Cortex CPU and Mali GPU cores for its SoCs. The company has high AI aspirations with its Ascend series of chips. Now recent rumors point out that the Chinese giant is setting up a GPU research center in South Korea and focuses on AI and datacenter.
