ARM goes 64-bit with its new ARMv8 chip architectu

Hardware 3

angry tapir writes "In less than a decade, a microprocessor core could be no bigger than a red blood cell, the CTO ARM has predicted. ARM has already helped develop a prototype, implantable device for monitoring eye-pressure in glaucoma patients that measures just 1 cubic millimeter, CTO Mike Muller said at ARM's TechCon conference. At the conference the company also introducted its first 64-bit chip. The ARMv8 adds 64-bit addressing capabilities, an improvement over the current ARMv7-A architecture, which is capable of up to 40-bit addressing. The architecture puts ARM into more direct competition with Intel and its 64-bit Xeon processors."

I forgot the obligatory car analogy

This nanocarbon frame and that disele engine put this subcompact in the same category as a stealth tank

too bad that article is useless (1)

It mentions 64-bit addressing, not 64-bit registers. Maybe it's just me, but 64-bit registers is not the same as 32-bit registers with extended addresses.
