Arm on top of the world: 70 million chips a day shipped
Arm's silicon partners shipped a record 7.3 billion Arm-based chips in the last calendar quarter of 2020, equating to more than 900 chips per second and 70 million chips a day.
That is 22 per cent up year-on-year, the Cambridge technology innovator revealed. The growth rate suggests that 100 per cent of the world’s shared data will soon be processed on Arm.
Arm partners shipped 25 billion Arm-based chips in 2020 (up 13 per cent year-on-year), bringing the total deployment of Arm-based chips to-date to more than 190 billion.
More than eight billion GPUs shipped cumulatively and more than one billion GPUs reported shipped in 2020; Arm Mali™ graphics processors remain the world’s number one shipping GPU.
The Arm ecosystem continues to expand with 162 licences signed in FY20 by 104 different customers. There are now 90 active Arm Flexible Access partners benefiting from easier access to a broad range of world-leading Arm IP, tools and support.
Rene Haas, President, IP Products Group, Arm, said: “We expect demand for Arm-based solutions across all markets to continue and to accelerate following the introduction of the Armv9 architecture.
“Armv9 is enabling our partners to offer greater performance and security in the products they are creating for 5G networks, more efficient data centres, and a huge range of endpoint and automotive-based computing.
“This growth underlines our expectation that 100 per cent of the world’s shared data will soon be processed on Arm; either at the endpoint, in the data networks or the cloud – forming a seamless compute thread throughout.”
