It looks like that Intel will be in a big problem after a few years if ARM goes rigorously like this.

I believe that this whole hype and speculation we hear these days of late, comes from the fact that people realize that there has to be a viable alternative to Intel and x86. And I keep wondering what IBM and the Power Alliance is doing?

I use arm CPU and can use 64 bits support if it is available. I really just need mmap64 support and be able to dereference 64 bits pointers in virtual address space. For me, it make senses for ARM to add this support. Multicore cell phone is there. Linux can use it today if 64 bit is enable. I can see some interesting use case for Android app with 64 bits support + cloud computing.

I suspect as others that there is more to this than said here. It's basically ARM's way of keeping things beneath the radar until they have something which goes like bang on the market, unlike intel which keeps out strutting marketing stuff in increments of MHz. I guess they have some real customers in the net who have big plans.

"the company has lacked is the ability to process data 64-bits at a time" That's not why 64-bit processors are needed. I would've expected an EETimes article to be more accurate than this....

Was this process a prime requirement from Apple? We may soon see more Apple products with ARM 64 bits. May be in Apple computers and even iPAD. We wish they publish salient freature of this design and novel technology they employed.

How can ARM hype it so much without releasing the sepcs. Agree with fellow readers its more of hype rather than achievement.

It seems to be a marketeers type of announcement I would have to agree with a number of the current posters. What I as an engineer what to know is: When will the 64bit be sampling (in real numbers - no pun intended)? Where are the specs (just like Wheres the beef)? How fast, how much on chip memory, etc... It would be hard to consider this chip without some real numbers and if they are not "available" then it is a NON story for now, some day maybe but not now.

LOL, what' wrong with ARM management or PR. Everyday they break a new story regarding their paper triumph. Is the hype part of business strategy now. Also, constant claims of superior energy efficiency has never been proven by any objective metrics such MFOPS/Watt. EETimes seems to be particularly keen on cheerleading ARM. Get a grip. This rag is turning into zero value add...just like your Intel 22nm SOI story.

LOL, more under the ARM Fluff, all we hear is speculation and funny story performance comparisons surrounding A15 and now likely the 64-bit story. just more fluff without any details - ARM provided NO PPA details of A15 at their recent conference, this is almost a year after they said it was coming. LOL

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
