ARM DynamIQ microarchitecture takes aim at AI and machine learning
The new technology, announced this Tuesday, is called DynamIQ, and ARM describes it as "probably the biggest micro-architectural shift since ARM announced 64-bit ARMv8-A in 2011". Toss in some new SIMD instructions, faster memory and caches, and the intrinsic advantages of a new CPU core designed five years hence, and it's no longer insane to think ARM could deliver a performance advantage that huge in specific workloads in such a short period of time (subject, of course, to power and thermal constraints).
ARM's DynamIQ architecture builds on its earlier big.LITTLE with the ability to mix up to eight cores of differing performance/power ratios, while also adding instructions created to accelerate AI and ML applications. This boosts innovation in SoCs designed with right-sized compute with heterogeneous processing that deliver meaningful AI performance at the device itself. 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. "Along with this we have an optimised memory sub system with faster access and power saving features", he said.
The Dynamiq instructions will also be specifically tailored to improve artificial intelligence and machine learning, with a 50-fold boost in AI performance coming in the next three to five years, ARM said.
This will help ARM move into markets beyond mobile, Nayampally explained, particularly as the demand for compute speeds up.
The technology should be useful for the evolving smartphone market, given the priorities around heterogeneous computing and device-based AI on mobile devices.
ARM's not giving exact dates for the technology's anticipated arrival, only stating that it expects its hardware partners to ship an additional 100 billion ARM-based chips by the year 2021, having shipped roughly half that number between 2013 and 2017.
This new microarchitecture will also allow for safer autonomous systems, according to ARM, with DynamIQ bringing with it greater levels of responsiveness for ADAS solution and increased safety capabilities which will enable partners to build ASIL-D compliant systems for safe operation under failure conditions.
With the DynamIQ, with is essentially an extension of ARM's Cortex-A processor design and will form the next family of Cortex-A processors due to emerge later this year, the Cambridge-based tech firm is enabling a expanded combination of cores on a single chip, with each core able to support an individual power profile allowing chipmakers to implement custom frequencies in each core.
The petitioners were also asked to show the documents whether they had gone to banks to deposit the old currency notes or not. The pPrime minister's speech gave hope to those in difficulty to deposit demonetised currency by March 31.
The Navy crew arrived at 4:30 a.m. and began removing water from the fishing vessel, then turned the task over to the Sockeye . Truline made it to the Newport Beach (Calif.) Shipyard hours later. "We were able to keep up with the flooding", Simpson said.
Twin suicide bombings in the high-security Kafr Sousa district of the capital in January killed 10 people, eight of them soldiers. Iraq's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that at least 40 of those killed were Iraqi, as well as 120 more wounded.
USA drillers boosted the rig count for a 9 straight week by 14 to 631 last week, data from Baker Hughes showed on Friday. That said, it appears that there are still opportunities left in the best parts of the US shale oil patch.
Specific USDA areas targeted for cuts include its statistical capabilities and staffing at its county-level service centers. Hladik says many parts of rural America did not recover fully from the Great Recession that started almost a decade ago.
It was quite unfortunate that the Congress in Kerala was without a president for the last two weeks, he added. The proposal came soon after Gandhi lost four of the five assembly elections held in five states.
I hate it for the fans. "Hopefully we can spread (the schedule) out a little bit more and get guys a little bit more rest. On the night, the four-time MVP was 13-for-22 from the floor, adding a team-high seven assists, six boards and a steal.

Trump loses $1bn, now 544th on Forbes billionaires list
Last year, Warren's paltry $1.7 billion ranked him 32nd in Texas and 1067th among the world's billionaires, according to Forbes . Trump hasn't released his tax returns, but during the election campaign he claimed to be worth in excess of $ 10 billion .
Uttar Pradesh gets Hindu firebrand leader
Given his following among a large section of Hindus as the "saviour" of the religion, Yogi would suit the RSS more than Modi. The party is back in the state after 15-years by winning 312 seats in the recently held assembly elections.
