Today Arm is announcing its new Neoverse V1 and N2 microarchitectures.

With a 50% generational IPC uplift, the Neoverse V1 goes for maximum performance in the infrastructure market, with similar design philosophies to the Cortex-X1 in the mobile space. Furthermore, although Arm is being vague on the architecture of these new CPUs, they represent the company’s first ever designs supporting new SVE (Scalable Vector Extensions).
