Recently, Arm introduced its next-generation data center chip technology called Neoverse V2, the architecture first used in Nvidia’s latest data center processor, Grace.Arm claims Neoverse V2Higher performance per thread and half the power consumption of its competitor x86.

According to foreign media theregister, at a press conference, Arm’s vice president of product solutions, Dermot O’Driscoll, answered reporters’ questions about RISC-V, acknowledging that RISC-V is promoting “some competition” with British chip designers, But there is currently no threat to Arm and its data center technology.

In the past few years, RISC-V has achieved tremendous development. With its neutral and open characteristics, it has quickly gained support in mainstream fields, especially in the fields of automotive and aerospace, such asIntel subsidiary releases 5nm RISC-V processor for autonomous driving, NASA selected RISC-V to build the next generation of high-performance aerospace computing chips, and SiFive, the leading RISC-V chip manufacturer, recently announced a complete chip design portfolio for automakers.

In the face of reporters’ questions, O’Driscoll emphasized Arm’s strength in intellectual property, licensing, customer relationships and software ecosystems, and pointed out that RISC-V is relatively immature in these areas – although RISC-V has been around since 2010 It has always existed, but the free and open instruction set architecture (ISA) has only recently made its way into commercial products.

Chris Bergey, senior vice president and general manager of Arm’s infrastructure business, said: “We really don’t think RISC-V can become a serious competitor in the data center space now or in the near future.” He talked about RISC-V “We do respect the power of the community, but we are more mature. You look at these solutions that we offer, they are very unique,” said V.

While Arm doesn’t see RISC-V as a threat right now, O’Driscoll said Arm is “absolutely keeping a close eye on what RISC-V is doing.”

I don’t take RISC-V seriously, but with the development of RISC-V, Arm has largely converged on its tough kernel licensing attitude. Such as reducing the cost of their IP licensing in some cases and allowing licensed users to add custom directives. Before the development of RISC-V, these low-profile actions were a fantasy for Arm.
