ARM DynamIQ: Expanding the possibilities for artificial intelligence

New dedicated processor instructions for ML and AI: Cortex-A processors designed for DynamIQ technology can be optimized to deliver up to a 50x boost in AI performance over the next 3-5 years relative to Cortex-A73-based systems today and up to 10x faster response between CPU and specialized accelerator hardware on the SoC that can unleash substantially better combined performance.

Gerard Pique refuses to blame tiredness after shock defeat for Barcelona
Former Real Madrid youth trainee Joselu gave Deportivo a deserved lead in the 40th minute after an error from Barca goalkeeper. Arda Turan, Denis Suarez, Andre Gomes - three players you don't generally see starting for Barcelona, and today showed why.

And doing it on a device with today's processors will result in a problem that anyone who's tried a marathon virtual reality gaming session with their Samsung Gear VR has experienced: the phone will likely overheat and shut down. "DynamIQ is the next stage, complementary to the existing technology, with up to 8 cores in a single clutser to bring a larger level of performance". DynamIQ is an evolutionary step forward for the ARM big.LITTLE technology launched in 2011, and while it follows the same principle of using the "right processor for the right task", the new architecture allows for new configurations that were not possible in the past. There's also a redesigned memory sub-system, which only powers the required memory banks at any given time, and this should boost performance and battery life further. Toss in some new SIMD instructions, faster memory and caches, and the intrinsic advantages of a new CPU core designed five years hence, and it's no longer insane to think ARM could deliver a performance advantage that huge in specific workloads in such a short period of time (subject, of course, to power and thermal constraints). This "monumental shift in multicore microarchitecture" is not the processor itself - new Cortex-A processors will be built by ARM's partners, both of which will be announced later this year. This move has should net increased performance, power efficiency, and reliability. "It will fuel innovation in an ever-demanding market for new designs, from thinner devices to cloud-based solutions - wherever computing happens". Known as DynamIQ, the new technology will be heading to automotive, smart home, smartphone, and other connected device markets in the near feature. Aiming to double the 50 billion chips shipped between 2013 and 2017, ARM supplies more than 450 silicon partners and 1,000 community partners. And thanks to DynamIQ's anticipatory systems, they can switch between on and off quicker than ARM's current chip generation.
