Last October, ARM disclosed technical details about its new v8 architecture - which is the first to include a 64-bit instruction set. The next-gen architecture is expected to significantly extend the reach of ARM processors in the lucrative server market, which is currently dominated by x86 chips.
"We have been working on 64-bit processors for about 5 years now and collaborating with partners for the past three. We are now at point where all building blocks in place," Lance Howarth, EVP of marketing at ARM told TG Daily on the sidelines of ARM TechCon 2011 in Santa Clara, California.
"We have models that are running 64-bit operating systems along with compilers. We are currently feeding everything back to the open source community and seeding with system partners. As such, we expect to see systems based on 64-bit ARM architecture hitting the market by 2013 or 2014."
