ARM Discloses First Details of ARMv8 Architecture

ARM unveiled its next generation chip architecture embracing 64-bit processing and extended virtual addressing.


The ARMv8 architecture consists of two main execution states, AArch64 and AArch32. The AArch64 execution state introduces a new instruction set, A64 for 64-bit processing. The AArch32 state supports the existing ARM instruction set. The key features of the current ARMv7 architecture, including TrustZone, virtualization and NEON advanced SIMD, are maintained or extended in the ARMv8 architecture.
