image for Arm wants to obliterate Intel and AMD with gigantic 192-core CPU

Arm has provided an updated roadmap on its Neoverse platform, first unveiled back in 2019, setting out more on what's to come.

Current Neoverse N1 designs reach 128-cores and 128-threads, while future N2 products are expected to cement that design while significantly improving on all other metrics.

Focusing on pure performance at any cost, Arm Neoverse N2 designs will surely make Intel and AMD sit up and take notice.

Built on a 5nm node, Perseus will offer up to 192 cores with a 350W TDP, rivalling and potentially surpassing EPYC and Xeon in key categories.

Both Neoverse V1 and N2 support SVE (Scalable Vector Extensions), which is also used in the Fujitsu A64FX chip powering the world’s fastest supercomputer .

According to AnandTech’s Andrei Frumusanu, the V1 will likely be an Arm v8.4+SVE1 design, while the N2 will likely feature a v9+SVE2 design.

Processors based on the N2 and V1 platforms will also offer PCIe Gen 5, with support for DDR5 and HBM2e memory. »

Many people in this sub are quick to share their less than compassionate attitude towards those less fortunate than them.

You don't want to see them, you don't want to share space with them, you don't care how they live or die.

Stop kidding yourselves, these people are no worse or better than you or me, and you could easily end up in their place. »
