ARM Unveils New Server Architecture And Next-Gen 64-Bit Mobile Performance

MojoKid (1002251) writes | about 4 months ago


MojoKid (1002251) writes "ARM recently held a tech day in Austin, TX and during the three-day session, the company covered a wide range of topics, with a primary focus on server ecosystems and next-generation mobile hardware. ARM gave an in-depth exploration of its new CCN-508 server interconnect. AMD and Intel don't really have an analogous chip to this. Think of the CCN-508 as the hub that all other CPUs, GPUs, ethernet, CPU cache, and other components connect to. The "cache coherent network" architecture ARM is introducing here offers a 128-bit bus that provides a total of 230GB/s of sustained bandwidth with up to 360GB/s burst bandwidth available. Representatives from Red Hat and Canonical also discussed their respective efforts in bringing up the software stacks required to make ARM an equal player with x86 in the server world, and HP was on-hand to discuss Project Moonshot, its initiative to build a dense server product around ARM and x86 cores. Finally, ARM also noted that 2014 will be the year that Android starts to seriously make an effort in 64-bit evolution as well. Benchmark data was offered, claiming impressive boosts for various workloads in tests like Geekbench, with the Cortex-A57 expected to deliver between 12 — 33% faster performance in 64-bit mode."
