ARM launches a new ARMv9 micro-architecture

ARM, a well-known chip R&D, and design company, recently announced the launch of a new ARMv9 architecture, which is a new chip prepared by ARM for the chip industry.

The ARMv8 architecture launched by the company 10 years ago has now covered a large number of smartphones, IoT devices, and other smart devices as control chips.

And this new version emphasizes artificial intelligence and security. So far it seems that computing performance has been placed in a secondary position, unlike before.

The reason for emphasizing artificial intelligence is that the company believes that artificial intelligence is the direction of development in the future, so it prepares chips in advance to prepare for the future.

Chips have become the focus of current technological development. Now more and more devices are beginning to carry chips for control systems or to provide more intelligent functions.

ARM predicts that the shipment of ARM devices will exceed 100 billion units in the next five years, and 100% of the data shared by the terminal or the cloud will be processed on the ARM chip.

The company said that the ARMv9 architecture will be equipped with 300 billion chips in the future. Although this number looks large, the speed of future technological development is beyond imagination.

ARM said that when we look to the future defined by artificial intelligence, we must lay a leading computing foundation and be prepared for the unique challenges of the future.

The ARMv9 architecture will be at the forefront of the next 300 billion ARM chips, including the economics of general-purpose computing, design freedom, and general specialization.

The focus of the architecture is on artificial intelligence and security. It is estimated that by the middle of this century, there will be more than 8 billion voice-assisted devices, and 90% of applications will contain AI elements.

ARM and Fujitsu collaborated to create SVE Scalable Vector Extensions. Now SVE 2 is part of ARMv9 for better machine learning and data processing.

In terms of security, the agency will obtain a certification shielding layer called CCA, which shields data access during use and directly protects user data through the hardware layer.

The company has not yet specified when the new micro-architecture system will be released, but as a new micro-architecture system, the industry naturally needs to wait patiently.
