Submission + - ARM goes 64-bit with its new ARMv8 chip architectu (techworld.com.au) 3

angry tapir writes: "In less than a decade, a microprocessor core could be no bigger than a red blood cell, the CTO ARM has predicted. ARM has already helped develop a prototype, implantable device for monitoring eye-pressure in glaucoma patients that measures just 1 cubic millimeter, CTO Mike Muller said at ARM's TechCon conference. At the conference the company also introducted its first 64-bit chip. The ARMv8 adds 64-bit addressing capabilities, an improvement over the current ARMv7-A architecture, which is capable of up to 40-bit addressing. The architecture puts ARM into more direct competition with Intel and its 64-bit Xeon processors."
