Chip designer ARM presented an updated version of its client CPU roadmap at ARM Tech Symposia Taiwan 2018. At the event, ARM announced its intention to increase CPU performance by at least 15 percent annually by 2020. Furthermore, ARM proclaimed that Moore's Law is still alive and kicking:
Under the roadmap released at Arm Tech Symposia Taiwan 2018 held November 1 in Taipei, the company's 7nm Deimos CPU to be released in 2019 will be 15% higher in performance than its 7nm Cortex-A 76 processor launched in 2018, and its Hercules platform to be built on 5nm node and hit the market in 2020 will see computing performance 2.5 times faster than Cortex A-73 CPU rolled out in 2016.

Speaking at the symposium, John Ronco, vice president and general manager for Embedded & Automotive at Arm, said that by releasing its latest CPU development roadmap, Arm wants to highlight that the Moore's Law has not become outdated and that the company will continue cooperating with TSMC and other semiconductor partners to boost processor performance year by year through architecture and process upgrades.
