We’re Nearly “There”, ARMed And Dangerous

“The Arm Cortex-A76 CPU is the second generation premium core built on DynamIQ technology. Paired with a Cortex-A55 CPU in a scalable DynamIQ big.LITTLE configuration, the Cortex-A76 delivers laptop-class performance with mobile efficiency, bringing the mobile experience (fast responsiveness, always on, always connected) into all classes of intelligent mobile compute devices. With superior energy efficiency and far greater single-threaded performance, the Cortex-A76 CPU extends battery life and improves user experience for sustained high performance across even the most complex compute tasks.”

OMG! 7nm! All day on a battery for smartphone or notebook! Huge performance increase over last year’s design! ARM is just about ready for anything ordinary users of IT need done. Put this technology into server-chips and we’re there.

I don’t know about you but I’ve been quite happy with my 28nm smartphone except for endurance, and the fact that my grandson lost it for me… At 7nm and improved architecture, I’m set for life. Put that kind of power into the servers on my LAN and the house will be humming. We are surviving at 35nm with a hair-drying AMD server now. By the time I get my Solo EV, I should have improved ARM technology running everywhere.
