September 05, 2023: Arm, the British chip designer, is getting closer to creating full-blown server CPU designs. The company has announced a new initiative called “Genesis,” designed to help Arm partners develop server CPUs based on Arm’s Neoverse architecture.
The Genesis initiative will provide Arm partners access to Arm’s silicon design kits, software development tools, and technical support. Arm is also working with partners to develop a standard set of specifications for Arm-based server CPUs.
The Genesis initiative aims to accelerate the development of Arm-based server CPUs and make them more competitive with x86-based CPUs. Arm believes that Arm-based server CPUs can offer several advantages over x86-based CPUs, such as lower power consumption and better performance per watt.
Practical Takeaways for Businesses:
The Genesis initiative is a positive development for Arm and its partners. It is a step towards making Arm-based server CPUs a more viable option for businesses.
