Now that ARM has unveiled its first new chip architecture in a decade, it's ready to show the CPU designs that will take advantage of those improvements. The company has unveiled a host of new Cortex CPUs (and companion Mali GPUs) that it hopes will power laptops, other computers and wearables in addition to the next wave of smartphones. The flagship is the ARM Cortex-X2, a CPU core meant to scale from "premium" smartphones to laptops. It r
  2. Nvidia's $40 Billion Arm Acquisition Is Under Scrutiny Photo: Justin Sullivan (Getty Images) As expected, Nvidia’s $40 billion acquisition of Arm is nowhere near a done deal. The EU and UK are ready to start investigating the merger, reports The Irish Times. Sources familiar with the matter told the publication that the deal will be thoroughly investigated, and could either be passed unconditionally or with concessions. The investigation comes in response to concerns that the deal will give Nvidia monopolistic power over current Arm licensees.
  3. Armv9 is Arm’s first major architectural update in a decade Arm is introducing Armv9, its biggest architecture upgrade since 2011. Image Credit: Arm Arm, the leader in chips used in everything from mobile devices to supercomputers, has unveiled Armv9, the company’s first major architectural change in a decade. The new designs should result in 30% faster performance over the next two chip generations. Arm is a chip architecture company that licenses its designs to others, and its customers have shipped more than 100 billion chips in the past five year
  4. ARM PCs will be a threat to Intel and AMD, CEO believes after Apple’s M1 success Real innovation will win out, Segars argues (Image credit: Future) Apple’s custom-designed ARM-based M1 chip has certainly made a big impact since it was launched inside MacBooks (and the new Mac mini), and ARM is keen to ride this wave of success, with the CEO making very optimistic noises about the chances of finally providing a meaningful challenge on the PC front. In other words, Simon Segars, CEO at ARM, believes tha
  5. UK watchdog begins investigating Nvidia's $40bn takeover of Arm Competition and Markets Authority examining deal to buy UK-based chip firm Britain’s competition watchdog has launched an investigation into the $40bn (£29.5bn) takeover of the UK-based chip designer Arm by the US company Nvidia. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has called for interested parties to submit views on the contentious deal before the launch of a formal investigation later this year. Arm Holdings, which employs 6,500 staff including 3,000 in the UK, is a global l
  6. Nvidia's $40 billion Arm acquisition may have a speedbump Could be just the first of many (Image credit: Nvidia) US competition regulators have demanded more documents from Nvidia amidst calls by its rivals to block its acquisition of Arm. Arm’s business model involves licensing chip designs to several hundred other companies including many that compete directly with Nvidia. These competitors claim the takeover will put them at a disadvantage as it would allow Nvidia to directly affect their operations
  7. How an obscure British PC maker invented ARM and changed the world 1987's Acorn Archimedes was the first production RISC-based personal computer. Enlarge Jason Torchinsky 166 with 105 posters participating Let's be honest: 2020 sucks. So much of this year has been a relentless slog of bad news and miserable events that it's been hard to keep up. Yet most of us have kept up, and the way most of us do so is with the small handheld computers we carry with us at all times
  8. Microsoft may be developing its own, in-house ARM CPU designs Bloomberg's unconfirmed report relies on confidential sources within Microsoft. Enlarge / Microsoft has so far neither confirmed nor denied Bloomberg's claims regarding in-house CPU designs. Aurich Lawson / Grid Engine 203 with 105 posters participating, including story author This afternoon, Bloomberg reported that Microsoft is in the process of developing its own ARM CPU designs, following in the footsteps of Apple's M1 mobile CPU and Amazon's Gravit
  9. Today, we’re releasing the first preview of x64 emulation for ARM64 devices to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel starting with the Build 21277. It can be installed on Windows 10 on ARM PCs by following the instructions as explained in this blog post. When we first launched Windows 10 on ARM in late 2017, the long tail of apps customers needed were dominated by 32-bit-only x86 applications, so we focused our efforts on building an x86 emulator that could run the broad ecosystem of Windows apps seamlessly and transparently. Over time, the ecosystem has moved more toward 64-b
  10. There’s a big difference between getting developers to write apps for a mobile platform that sells in huge volumes versus a completely unproven platform with no users. On Tuesday, at its third event in as many months, Apple is expected to announce the first models of Mac computers running on Apple Silicon, the in-house-designed SoC that will enable the transition from Intel to Arm-based architecture. There've been some rumors about the potential form factors of these Brave New Macs -- at least two MacBook models are expected. However, we don't know a great
  11. Arm has launched a CPU monster that will get Intel and AMD very worried Designed to power the next-gen always-on portables (Image credit: Future) Arm has just announced the Arm Cortex-A78C CPU, which can support up to eight cores and eight MB of cache to meet compute-intensive workloads. What makes the announcement even more noteworthy is that it comes days before Apple will unveil its first batch of three Arm-powered laptops at its ‘One More Thing’ event on November 10. The newly announced CPU is Arms
  12. Leaked Apple ARM CPU benchmark beats Intel Core i9 16-inch MacBook Pro The A14X Bionic looks mighty impressive (Image credit: Future) A newly leaked benchmark shows Apple's ARM-based A14X Bionic processor outperforming an Intel i9-powered MacBook Pro by a healthy margin. The new chip is expected to debut on November 10 during Apple's "One More Thing" event. An unnamed device powered by the A14X Bionic chip was reportedly benchmarked in Geekbench 5, which was likely an engineering sample, according to Wccftech. In terms o
  13. Multiple reports have indicated that Apple plans to transition to its own ARM-based processors in Macs starting as early as 2020, and the company recently made a significant hire that lends credence to that objective. ARM's lead CPU and system architect Mike Filippo joined Apple last month, based out of the Austin, Texas area, according to his LinkedIn profile. Filippo led the development of several chips at ARM between 2009 and 2019, including the Cortex-A76, Cortex-A72, Cortex-A57, and upcoming 7nm+ and 5nm chips. Filippo also served as Intel's lead C
  14. UK chip designer cites “US origin technology" as a reason to cut ties with Huawei. Enlarge Getty Images It looks like Huawei is not just being shunned by the US, but now, the world! According to a report from the BBC, ARM has told its employees the US export ban means it can no longer work with Huawei, dealing a crippling blow to Huawei's SoC division, HiSilicon, and to Huawei's ability to create smartphone chips in the future. ARM's interpretation of the US export ban comes as a surprise, as the company is not b
  15. Making macOS run well on ARM processors isn’t the hard part Less surprise will mean more delight Mark Gurman at Bloomberg has the confirmation we’ve all be waiting for: Apple will reportedly use a 12-core 5nm ARM processor in a 2021 Mac. There’s plenty of time to work out the details, but getting both the rollout and the technical side of this transition right won’t be easy. We watched a generation of pretty bad Windows 10 ARM laptops come out. Then we got the excellent Surface Pro X, which still has very aggravating software compatibility gotchas. The
  16. Microsoft close to emulating x64 code on ARM laptops Microsoft’s Windows 10 on ARM efforts are about to take another step, with evidence Microsoft is close to enabling the execution of 64bit code on Windows 10 on ARM laptops. Currently, ARM laptops use the WoW emulator designed to run Win32 code on x64 computers to run Win32 code on ARM64 code, but that neat hack, unfortunately, means 64bit Windows applications are simply not supported on Windows 10 on ARM laptops. Now a recent GitHub commit noticed by twitter account Longhorn explicitly mentions support for x64 cod
  17. It's official: x64 emulation is coming to Windows on ARM The idea that Microsoft was going to support AMD64 (or x64) emulation on Windows on ARM has been floating around since November of last year, when we exclusively reported that the company was working on it. Now, it's official, the firm announced today. As it stands right now, ARM64 PCs can run three kinds of apps: 32-bit native ARM apps, 64-bit native ARM apps, and 32-bit emulated Intel (x86) apps. Soon, you can add 64-bit emulated Intel (x64) apps to the mix. Performance on emulated apps isn't as good
  18. Several U.S. companies temporarily cut their ties with Huawei earlier this year after the Department of Commerce added the Chinese tech giant to its 'Entity List'. Among the companies that suspended business with Huawei were Google and Qualcomm. Shortly thereafter, British semiconductor firm ARM followed suit. Today, ARM announced that it has decided to keep supplying Huawei with its chip designs after its legal team concluded that its v8 and v9 architectures are of non-U.S. origin. That means supplying these technologies to the Chinese firm won't violate existing U.S. restrictions
  19. Google is working with Qualcomm to brings ARM capabilities to Chrome. Doing so would dent Microsoft Edge as the browser continues to battle Chrome’s dominance. Over the last year, Microsoft has been working with chip giant Qualcomm on Windows 10 on ARM. The idea is to make PCs more affordable by blending the best aspects of desktop computing and mobile tech. Now, Google is once again challenging Microsoft directly with its own ARM integration for Chrome desktops. Windows 10 on ARM has had mixed results so far, not least because Microsoft’s app is
  20. Apple’s new ARM-based Macs won’t support Windows through Boot Camp It’s up to Microsoft to change that Apple will start switching its Macs to its own ARM-based processors later this year, but you won’t be able to run Windows in Boot Camp mode on them. Microsoft only licenses Windows 10 on ARM to PC makers to preinstall on new hardware, and the company hasn’t made copies of the operating system available for anyone to license or freely install. “Microsoft only licenses Windows 10 on ARM to OEMs,” says a Microsoft

  24. ARM’s new edge AI chips promise IoT devices that won’t need the cloud The smart devices of the future might not need servers to enable AI Edge AI is one of the biggest trends in chip technology. These are chips that run AI processing on the edge — or, in other words, on a device without a cloud connection. Apple recently bought a company that specializes in it, Google’s Coral initiative is meant to make it easier, and chipmaker ARM has already been working on it for years. Now, ARM is expanding its efforts in the field with two new chip desig
