ARM announces its next-gen ARMv9 architecture: focus on security, AI and vector processing

31 March 2021
The expectations are for 30% boost in CPU performance over the next couple of generations of Cortex designs.

    So to understand better. Basically phones with ARMV9 will be just as secured and safe like iphone ?

    Where it makes it hard to hack and so on.

          Absolute unit. Raytrace my genshins, senpai!

            Holy hell, they plan on supporting ray tracing

              its about time they focus on security. it took them long enough!

                Peter-B, 31 Mar 2021I doubt it. The Pi 4 has Cortex-A72 cores. Even A75/A76 wou... moreThe Pi Foundation & Odroid Team, they rely on obscure and niche chipmakers. Ones that are able to produce the chips at high volume, low cost, and access to sensitive software (aka Open-Source Drivers). Obviously these happen once in a blue moon.

                So it's going to be (probably) many many years until we see an ARM-v9 Odroid or Pi. We likely will never get another A72, A73, A75 solution. Cortex A77 and A78 seem even less likely. However, there is some buzz around the Cortex-A76 designs, so I would expect we see a derivative of this released in Q1 2023. If you can remember that long, come back and reply to this comment to see how accurate I was of the date/specs ; )

ISA (such as ARM, X86) is the name of architecture type (such as Risc, Cisc). Which can't be customised but upgrade. Microarchitecture is the thing belongs to each ISA and it can be customised. Do some study.

                      So ARMv9 will be in 2022 CPUs. That means most flagships of 2023 will have this new chipsets. Mid-rangers of 2024 will have them too. I'm buying a new phone in two years, maybe 2023. And then the next year I'll see 30% performance upgrade in an instant. Sad.
