The Basis for Solutions Approach

Armv9 Architecture

Armv9-A supports the 128-bit wide fixed-length vector extensions first seen in Armv7 and Armv8. SVE2 goes further to provide variable length vectors, enabling vector-length, agnostic programming for enhanced application performance on mobile computing devices.

Arm Compute Subsystems (CSS) for Client

Arm's first CSS for client markets is based on the latest Armv9.2 CPU cluster and Arm Immortalis GPU with new Arm Physical Implementations to address the need for more efficient compute in best-in-class consumer solutions.
