Arm unveils updated Neoverse CPU roadmap, targeting cloud, ultra-high workloads and HPC

British Semiconductor Corporation Arm Ltd. today a statement A revamped product roadmap with new processor designs it says will provide a foundation for multiple types of workloads over the next few years.

Arm’s roadmap sees the addition of Arm Neoverse V2, codenamed Demeter, a new processor expected to play a major role in future data centers. The company said its latest core is designed to provide the highest per-thread performance for cloud and ultra-high-performance computing and high-performance workloads.

In an online presentation, Arm CEO Rene Haas said industry leaders across cloud, HPC, 5G and edge computing have chosen Arm Neoverse as the computing foundation for their next-generation multi-infrastructure platforms. Arm Neoverse is introduced in 2018 as the company’s answer to Xeon processors from Intel Corp and Epyc chips to Advanced Micro Devices Inc. Since it has evolved into three distinct platforms – the Arm V series, N-series, and E-series – each aimed at different computational tasks.

Arm’s Vice President of Product Solutions Dermot O’Driscoll stated during the presentation that V-series chip designs have been adopted by more than 20 chip makers. Schemes enable chip makers to Create new solutions At an extremely rapid pace and rapidly meeting the changing needs of customers and the market alike.

O’Driscoll explained that tomorrow’s cloud infrastructure will need to be able to handle the explosion of new data while tackling increasingly more complex workloads. At the same time, customers want to see increased energy efficiency as well, as they look to reduce their carbon footprint.

In particular, he said, customers are looking for solutions that increase cloud workload performance without additional energy and space requirements. Arm’s response to these demands, he said, is the Neoverse V2 platform, which will provide market-leading true performance for cloud and HPC workloads.

Moreover, it will be released soon. Arm said several partners are already working to get their chip designs based on the Neoverse V2 on the market. One of these companies is Nvidia Corp. , which uses V2 as the basis for the new Grace Data Center CPU. Grace is said to combine the energy efficiency of V2 with LPDDR5X memory to deliver twice the performance per watt compared to servers running on traditional architectures.

Arm said that Nvidia’s Grace CPUs are already in production and that several other customers also have chips based on the V2 scheme in late development. These clients include the likes of Ampere Computing LLC and Marvell Technologies Inc. and Amazon Web Services Inc.

Less information has been given about the upcoming N-series and E-series chip designs, which are set for release in 2023. While V-series cores are designed to push the boundaries of performance, N-series chips are designed for applications where thread count is prioritized over performance. monofilament Meanwhile, Arm E-series cores are intended for data level processing applications such as edge networks, 5G RAN networks, and other types of acceleration.

Arm said a third version of its base N-series designs is in development and will be available to partners later next year. The E2 successor is currently in development and should also be available next year.
