This week, arm released the V9 instruction set. Although it is not as groundbreaking as the previous generation V8 brought 64 bit, it is self-evident that it will become the cornerstone of chips in the next 10 years.
According to arm, V9 instruction set improves security, vector computing, machine learning and digital signal processing on the basis of compatibility with armv8, and continues to improve processor performance, which is the most important innovation in the past 10 years.
After the release of the V9 instruction set, Samsung Electronics, Xiaomi, Google and oppo all appeared on the official congratulations list, but it was reported that,Apple is expected to be the first to launch arm V9. After all, the world's first 64 bit mobile phone processor was Apple's A7 (carried on iPhone 5S) in 2013.
For a long time, Apple has adopted the method of purchasing instruction set authorization, but developing its own IP core, that is, it does not use arm public version, which will be much faster in theory.
When V9 was released, arm said that it would be commercially available by the end of 2021. It seems that A15 processor can't catch up with it. Maybe M-series MAC processor can spell it.
