ARM unveils Dynamiq multicore chip designs for faster AI and cloud computing

DynamIQ, which ARM calls the "biggest [architectural] shift since [the] 64-bit ARMv8-A in 2011", targets automotive, networking, server, and personal computing devices. This boosts innovation in SoCs designed with right-sized compute with heterogeneous processing that deliver meaningful AI performance at the device itself. Those partners will be announced when the new processors are launched later this year, while products based on this technology should be available sometime in 2018. Microsoft has already laid some of the groundwork for additional applications back in December when it announced that it would be bringing its apps to the company's mobile processors, in an attempt to get hardware makers to build a wider variety of devices for the operating system.

Building on the company's big.LITTLE architecture, which partners low-power low-performance cores with a typically equal number of high-power high-performance cores in an effort to offer on-demand performance and longer idle battery life, DynamIQ is positioned by ARM as being considerably more flexible.

U.S. Bancorp (USB) Shares Bought by Folger Hill Asset Management LP
The company reported the earnings of $0.82/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.81/share. In other news, insider Andrew Cecere sold 374,636 shares of the stock in a transaction on Wednesday, January 25th.

The DynamIQ cluster technology will allow up to eight completely different cores to be used in a big.LITTLE style. With big.LITTLE, each cluster was targeted for a particular performance level. ARM has also redesigned the memory subsystem (shared across all cores) to not only improve power management, but to also to speed up data access. It can scale with significantly reduced latency through more efficient communications.

"Not only can you tune the clusters, you can tune individual processors and actually trade off the right performance for the right power and energy characteristics", Nayampally said.

The " Supergirl " star is dating her co-star Chris Wood , Entertainment Tonight reports . The upcoming episode is scheduled to premiere on Monday, March 27, 2017, at 8:00 p.m.

ARM is projected to ship 100 billion chips between 2017 and 2021 to its more than 450 silicon partners and 1,000 community partners, which doubles the 50 billion it shipped between 2013 and 2017. The flexibility and versatility of DynamIQ will redefine the multi-core experience across a greater range of devices from edge to cloud across a secure, common platform. DynamIQ also brings greater levels of responsiveness for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and increased safety capabilities.

For every industry ARM expects DynamIQ to touch, artificial intelligence is expected to play a key role.

Greek police intercept 8 parcel bombs headed to European Union institutions & companies
Police have not yet announced who the recipients were but only that the packages were to be sent to European countries. Greek authorities were on alert after the dispatch of two parcels laced with gunpowder last week.

Taken together, ARM says that the next generation of Cortex-A processors using DynamIQ will be capable of achieving a 50x increase in AI performance over the next five years (compared to a contemporary Cortex-A73 design).
