Arm has unveiled a new generation of Neoverse cores that are intended to provide the highest levels of performance and power efficiency in the data center. In addition to improvements in hardware-based security, the new flagship core, Neoverse V2 (codenamed Demeter), is stated to provide “market-leading integer performance” across cloud and HPC applications.
Neoverse V2 will soon be included in Nvidia’s highly anticipated 72-core Grace CPU. Nvidia stated that the new Arm platform was chosen because of its unrivaled performance-per-watt.
Mobile phones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are the main uses for Arm-based CPUs. With its Neoverse platform, which currently supports a number of performance-centric processors and caters to use cases across cloud, HPC, and the edge, Arm has recently started to push its way into the datacenter.
Consequently, instead of relying entirely on Intel Xeon and AMD EPYC CPUs, cloud vendors like AWS and Alibaba have learned the performance benefits of creating their own custom Arm-based silicon. Evidence points to companies like Microsoft and Meta soon following suit.
Arm-based CPUs are now found in about 5% of servers, according to the most recent data from Omdia, but the company anticipates making significant progress in the following years as significant investment starts to pay off.
According to Arm, data is in high demand across industries, including 5G, the cloud, and smart cities. As a society, people desire more freedom, knowledge to guide their choices and behaviors, and connection—to other people, their experiences, as well as their stories.
