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

Cloud-to-Edge Scalability

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.

Performance for 5G and Scale-Out Cloud

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. 

Armv9 Features for Infrastructure

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).
