    Phoronix: Arm Outlines More Neoverse N2 + Neoverse V1 Platform Details

    Arm published today a set of blog posts outlining more power/performance and feature details of their forthcoming Neoverse N2 and Neoverse V1 platforms...

    They also said that 14% of total EC2 instances, and 49% of newly-created instances, are Graviton2.

    That is remarkable growth.

      Great, but is this available in full public retail board form (or something), or is it just big-iron only?

        ARM's first real foray into "Big Iron" was their Neoverse N1 which was derived from their clean sheet design of the Cortex A76 with the replacement of big.LITTLE with DynamicIQ.

        You can think of it as roughly analagous with how Intel takes a core design and makes consumer iSomethingMeaningless and Xeons from that design. Same with AMDs Epycs and Zens.

          Here's a nice summary about the V1 and the N2 from the Register. As they mention in the article there will be a deep dive into both on their sister site The Next Platform which is dedicated to HPC and Supercomputers.

            Ugh, guess Apple M1 will not have a competitor yet...

              In general, ARM's mobile cores are still ahead of their server cores, in terms of IPC. And we already knew that the A78 & the X1 (its juiced-up cousin) hadn't caught Apple.

                You can buy Altra-based workstations, but they're not cheap:


                ...except compared to a Power Mac. But, everything is cheap by comparison to a Power Mac.

                  Not quite yet. Consider doing with Windows and ARM what Apple did with MacOS and M1. The common desktop hardware platform requirement is one thing. The Windows Rosetta requirement is something else...

                    I guess we will see an M1 competitor from Qualcomm sooner or later now that they've acquired Nuvia. There is also Nvidia, if they succeed with the take over, they might be more aggressive in attacking the desktop market. That might be further down the road though.
