ARMv9 is introducing the Arm Confidential Compute Architecture (CCA) for confidential computing with dynamically created "Realms", Scalable Vector Extensions 2 (SVE2) for greater machine learning performance and digital signal processing capabilities, and other improvements over ARMv8.

Arm is expecting CPU performance increases of "more than 30%" over the next two generations of mobile and infrastructure CPUs.
