Industry-leading Performance and Power Efficiency for Cloud-to-Edge Infrastructure
Our first Armv9 infrastructure CPU, Neoverse N2 offers best-in-class performance, efficiency, and compute density, while maintaining the cloud native experience.
Features and Benefits
Market-leading scalability and versatility that addresses a wide range of workloads from scale-out cloud to edge compute. In high core-count cloud applications, chip designers can deliver more than 128 threads per socket.
A significant 40 percent performance increase over the Neoverse N1 CPU along with industry-leading power and area efficiency, and single-thread performance for scale-out cloud and 5G applications.
Uses Armv9 CPU for infrastructure and introduces key features for performance, power efficiency, and security: Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) version two (SVE2) and Memory Tagging Extension (MTE).

Performance that Spans Cloud to Edge
To deliver on performance and versatility, 5G requires a more complex and robust infrastructure. Arm delivers technology for building faster, low-latency 5G networks.
Cloud customers are experiencing improved price performance over comparable traditional architecture-based instances on a broad range of workload.
System IP Configurable for Many Applications
The highly scalable mesh is optimized for Armv9 and Armv8-A processors, multi-chip configurations, and CXL attached devices. It can be customized across a wide range of performance points.
Arm SMMU v3.2 compliant MMU-700 is compatible with Arm v8.4 and v9 CPU’s. It enables virtualization in the Arm Secure World and QoS for IO traffic. MMU-700 is built for PCIe Gen5 BW.
GIC-700 hardware accelerates virtual interrupts to be delivered to virtual machines providing significant system performance improvement over Arm CoreLink GIC-600.
