Asked about 128-bit processors, ARM commented that it's still way to soon for 128-bit chips and that 64-bit will be enough for a long time. The company said rumors about a 128-bit chip being developed by ARM are incorrect. Full details at X-bit Labs.
A news-paper recently published a story claiming that ARM Holdings, which develops micro-processing technologies for mobile devices, has begun development of 128-bit processing architecture. ARM and its partners are only beginning to roll-out 64-bit application processors for mobile devices based on ARMv8-A micro-architecture. In the coming years everyone in the ARM camp will try to improve their 64-bit offerings, not introduce all-new 128-bit CPUs that will not be needed for years to come.
“News reports have suggested that ARM is developing 128-bit processor technology: this is not true. 64-bit processors are capable of supporting the needs of the computing industry now and for many years to come. There are absolutely no plans underway for 128 bit ARM-based chips because they simply aren’t needed. Rumors to the contrary are simply incorrect,” said Ian Drew, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of ARM.
