Accelerating Digital Immersion Through a Total Compute Strategy

Advances in digital immersion continue to inspire more natural and intuitive ways to interact with digital information and devices. This in turn is creating more advanced, complex, and demanding multi-compute workloads, especially for cutting-edge XR, gaming, viewing, and AI-based experiences.


To realize these requirements, there has to be a massive shift in the approach to SoC design. Total Compute from Arm is a way to move beyond optimizing individual IP to take a system-level solution view of the SoC that puts use cases and experiences at the heart of the designs.

Optimizing Performance, Security, and Developer Access

Total Compute focuses on optimizing these key features across Arm’s IP and software and tools. This means higher-performing, more immersive and more secure experiences on devices, and an easier app development process.
