ARM announces multicore processor architecture targeting automated driving
ARM has revealed the first steps in its next generation processor technology. Changes to the ARMv8 instruction set will boost the performance of artificial intelligence and machine learning by up to 50 times using a more flexible cluster of processor cores
Nick Flaherty , Mar. 21, 2017 –
The DynamIQ cluster technology will allow up to eight completely different cores to be used in a big.LITTLE style. The move is aimed at a wide range of applications, including driverless cars and automotive driver assistance systems as well as enterprise servers.
"By 2020 we expect to see a lot of artificial intelligence deployed from autonomous driving platforms to mixed reality," said Nandan Nayampally, General Manager of ARM's Compute Products Group. "Even with 5G you cannot purely rely on the cloud for machine learning or AI so as performance continues to grow it needs to fit into ever smaller power envelopes."Click here to read more ...
