    Phoronix: GCC 15 Merges Support For Intel APX NF

    The latest feature work around Intel's Advanced Performance Extensions (APX) that is merged for the in-development GCC 15 compiler is supporting APX NF functionality for suppressing the update of status flags on arithmetic operations...

    When will see the first CPUs with Intel APX and will we ever see CPUs with x86S?

    Will Intel and AMD ever have anything that can compete with Apple M4 and Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite?
    Will Intel and AMD ever have any RISC-V or ARM CPU?

      From the "extensions programming reference" (version 052), APX is coming, but just in "future processors". X86S is not mentioned. Granted, X86S is still listed as a "proposal", and it depends on features that haven't even been released yet (such as FRED).

        x86's swan song.

        By the time hardware appears, it'll be readily ignored as the world will be rightfully focused on the new RISC-V chips.

          x86 is only the programming interface for the microcode translation layer. The backend hardware can be almost the same.

            Hehe sure ..., you have mixed-up the arches. X86 is readily available and RISC-V is a little footnote with expensive and under performing CPU that are already years old.

              APX is not on the public release roadmap at this time and is still in the testing phases, but it will certainly hit the Xeons first. x86s is just a proposal at this time and is not being seriously considered beyond whatever Intel has coming out of their lab fabs.

              AMD has their future APUs that use new design processes that will significantly increase performance and have already developed ARM SOCs with Samsung CPU tech and AMD RDNA GPU tech, to be used with the next Windows release, for the Windows on ARM market that will take off then.
