ARM to embrace multithreading

Written by


It takes two arms to strangle the competition
ARM is planning to implement multithreading on its future architectures and the chipmaker believes the move will help boost the performance of its high-end chips aimed at demanding markets.

Mind you, ARM is the epitome of plucky British design, getting more out of less, much like Lotus sports cars or Mosquito fighter-bombers of WWII fame, so the decision to embrace multithreading really isn’t all that surprising. However, it will take a while before we see multithreaded ARMs in our smartphones.

It appears that ARM will focus on multithreading in its future server chip designs, but we have no doubt that the concept will spread to consumer chips sooner or later. Don’t get too optimistic just yet, ARM hasn’t included multithreading on its latest Cortex A15 design and it could be quite a while before we see multithreaded ARM chips in consumer devices.

I wouldn't mind seeing ARM become a viable PC CPU granted Windows would not be supported (not sure what versions though). M$ has been committing total suicide with Windows 6/7/8 any way so it's just a matter of time for Linux folks to stop playing in the console playground and make Linux a viable production environment as it's undeniably awesome for a server environment.

Awesome, that's like something Nick would sub-title, but slightly more clever than his average :)

stfu idiot, man you brit fags r so up your own asses and full of sh*t - answer this: when was the last time arm actually produced something, as in actually made a processor, as opposed to leaving that minor aspect up to others? Fool :D And if arm get too big for their boots they'll be taken over in a nanosecond

I thought about deleting this, but I'll just leave it as a testament to your stupidity...

oh yeah and correct me if I'm wrong but I heard somewhere that EVERY ONE of your auto makers is now foreign-owned, some by Indians, some by Germans and Kuwait and Russia too iirc! Is that correct? Plucky my ass! You see why your boasting about industry sounds ridiculous?

I'm Bosnian. The only auto maker we ever had was owned by the Germans, i.e. VW...

And you're missing the point anyway. Lotus makes ultralight sports cars... De Havilland's Mosquito was light (made out of plywood), agile and fast. ARM makes simple, cheap chips that do the job, just like the Mosquito or an Elise...

And every one of yours was massively bailed out by the government because they produce inefficient crap that nobody wants. A bit like Nvidia.

Imagine a DS or a cell phone in the future with a quad core ARM at 400MHz at 22nm and a < 3W TDP.

I'm quite sure it will be faster than 400Mhz, next step is supposed to be dual-core 1.5Ghz
