Charbax writes "ARM is introducing the ARMv8 64-bit architecture. It can be for Smartphones, Tablets, and also for Servers, Desktops, Set-top-boxes and more. Here is an interview with ARM's CTO Mike Muller after this announcement keynote. At the ARM TechCon 2011 in Santa Clara (October 25-27th), ARM also showed the first ARM Cortex-A15 prototype and talked about their new ARM Cortex-A7 big.LITTLE platform. TSMC (the worlds largest independent foundry for the fabless semiconductor industry) says that they can scale processor manufacturing size down to 7nm over the next 10 years, and that 28nm is now in volume production, so they can keep busy. Texas Instruments is soon ready to showcase their OMAP5 28nm ARM Cortex-A15 processor, Marvell shows their "Tri-Core" PXA2128 on a tablet prototype for the first time and Freescale demonstrates the performance of their upcoming i.MX6 Quad Core ARM Cortex-A9 processor."
