Arm Announces Neoverse V2 and E2: The Next Generation of Arm Server CPU Cores
Just under four years ago, Arm announced their Neoverse family of infrastructure CPU designs. Deciding to double-down on the server and edge computing markets by designing Arm CPU cores specifically for those markets – and not just recycling the consumer-focused Cortex-A designs – Arm set about tackling the infrastructure market in a far more aggressive manner. Those efforts, in turn, have increasingly paid off handsomely for Arm and its partners, whom thanks to the likes of products like Amazon’s Graviton and Ampere Altra CPUs have at long last been able take a meaningful piece of the server CPU market.
But as Arm CPUs finally achieve the market penetration that eluded them in the previous decade, Arm needs to make sure it isn’t resting on its laurels. Of the company’s three lines of Neoverse core designs –the efficient E, flexible N, and high-performance V – the company is already on its second generation of N cores, aptly dubbed the N2. Now, the company is preparing to update the rest of the Neoverse lineup with the next generation of V and E cores as well, announcing today the Neoverse V2 and Neoverse E2 cores. Both of these designs are slated to bring the Armv9 architecture to HPC and other server customers, as well as significant performance improvements.
