ARM announces DynamIQ technology that will improve AI performance in its processors

ARM moves beyond mobile with DynamIQ

DynamIQ takes this big.LITTLE technology to the next level, improving the heterogeneous processing capabilities of ARM processors.

"We see it as our responsibility to address the industry's demand of ubiquitous AI, autonomous systems, and accelerating the integration of virtual worlds toward a mixed-reality experience", an ARM spokesperson said. The flexibility and versatility of DynamIQ will redefine the multi-core experience across a greater range of devices from edge to cloud across a secure, common platform.

The new processors will enable flexible multicore processing - where a computing device has to juggle many different tasks of varying sizes at once. Now more than 3.5 billion people use ARM-based devices, with the company looking to grow year-on-year in the next five years.

The company is positioning DynamIQ chips for cars (accounting for the added workload of autonomous vehicles) and connected home devices, in addition to smartphones and the like.

ARM considers Dynamiq to be the biggest micro-architectural shift since ARM announced its 64-bit computing architecture in 2011. A compact "single-cluster" design consolidates multiple components in a single chip, and enhanced big.LITTLE, an ARM technology that intelligently switches between processor cores, shares memory between cores more efficiently. Every core in this cluster can be a different implementation and a different core and that brings substantially higher levels of performance and flexibility.

"Not only can you tune the clusters, you can tune individual processors and actually trade off the right performance for the right power and energy characteristics", Nayampally said. Aiming to double the 50 billion chips shipped between 2013 and 2017, ARM supplies more than 450 silicon partners and 1,000 community partners. DynamIQ also represents the sort of ARM ISA enhancements referenced by Microsoft recently in a blog post about the future of cloud infrastructure. These advanced capabilities enable faster responsiveness to ML and AI applications. Meanwhile, DynamIQ's scalability should also prove useful for networking environments. With that in mind, Cortex-A processors designed for DynamIQ technology can be optimized to deliver up to a 50x boost in AI performance over the next three to five years, ARM says, as well as up to 10x faster communications with tightly coupled on-chip hardware accelerators.
