1.8x More Vector Workloads
Neoverse V1 with SVE delivers 1.8x more vector performance across a range of HPC kernels compared to Neoverse N1.
2x Better Floating-point Performance
Neoverse V1 with SVE delivers 512bits of vector processing per core, doubling the capability over Neoverse N1 with NEON.
4x Better Machine Learning Performance
New Int8 Matrix Multiplication instruction on Neoverse V1 offers up to 4x the ML processing capability of Neoverse N1.

Neoverse N-Series

The Neoverse N1 and N2 offer the broadest range of workload performance flexibility. Neoverse N2 performs well on cloud-based workloads like NGINX but is also very effective for 5G-edge applications, such as DPDK L3 forwarding.
1.4x More IPC on the SPECint®2006 Benchmark
On an unloaded system with all CPU resources available to a single thread, Neoverse V1 delivers +40% more IPC than Neoverse N1 on the SPECint2006 benchmark.
1.3x Higher Throughput on NGINIX Application
When configured as a web server or a reverse proxy server, Neoverse N2 delivers 30% higher transaction throughput over Neoverse N1 on the popular NGINIX application.
1.2x More Throughput on DPDK L3 Fwd

On DPDK L3 forward packet processing the Neoverse N2 core delivers 20% more throughput than Neoverse N1.
