Analyst Weighs In on 64-Bit ARM

August 16, 2012

In a recent report in Real World Technologies, chip guru David Kanter dissects the new 64-bit ARM design and what it might mean to the IT landscape. His take on the architecture is almost uniformly positive, noting that not only did the designers manage to develop an elegant instruction set that was backwardly compatible with the existing ISA, but they also took the extra step to jettison a few of the poorly designed features of the 32-bit architecture.
