Arm Unveils Neoverse V3 and N3 CPUs: Revolutionizing Computing Landscape

Arm has unveiled its long-awaited third-generation Neoverse CPU cores: the Neoverse V3 and Neoverse N3, alongside the Neoverse E3 tailored for edge computing and low-power applications.

The Neoverse V3, Arm’s pinnacle CPU core yet, adopts the Armv9-A (v9.2) ISA and integrates a 1MB/2MB/3MB L2 cache with ECC capability. According to Arm’s assessments, a simulated 32-core Neoverse V3 demonstrates a 9% – 16% performance boost compared to its predecessor, the Neoverse V2, in typical server workloads.

Remarkably, in AI data analytics, the Neoverse V3 processor showcases an impressive 84% performance surge over its predecessor. However, it’s essential to note that the Neoverse V2 remains formidable in its own right. For instance, NVIDIA’s Grace CPU harnesses 72 Arm Neoverse V2 CPU cores to achieve superior per-thread performance.
