Arm Ltd debuts new chip technology aimed at overtaking data centers

Arm Ltd, the British technology firm whose chip technology powers most of the world’s smartphones, on Tuesday released a new generation of technology aimed at taking over data centers and artificial intelligence applications ahead of its planned $40 billion merger with Nvidia Corp. Arm released a new version of what is called its instruction set architecture, the most fundamental recipe for a chip that defines what kind software it can run. Arm makes major updates to the architecture only about once a decade, and its major rival is Intel Corp, which supplies the so-called x86 architecture that powers most of today’s laptops and data center servers and underlies chips from both Intel and Advanced Micro Devices.
