(Reuters) – British chip designer ARM on Tuesday launched its first 64-bit processors to power the next generation of smartphones and tablets and offer low-energy solutions for servers.
The Cambridge-based company, whose technology is in Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S3, said its latest blueprints would deliver three times today’s processing power using the same amount of energy.
The move to 64-bit architecture, from ARM’s current 32-bit designs, will give ARM-based chips increased processing power but retain the energy efficiency central to its technology, the company said.
I’ve been watching the ARM processor platform with interest, we’ve seen already some movements in the sever space based on the ARM processors, the migration to 64bit architecture will create further possibilities and I wonder might drive further adoption accordingly.
