Japanese-owned tech giant ARM has announced the impending launch of DynamIQ, a new architecture which the company bills as 'probably the biggest microarchitectural shift since ARM announced 64-bit ARMv8-A in 2011,' which allows for low-power and high-performance cores to be implemented in any ratio.Building on the company's big.LITTLE architecture, which partners low-power low-performance cores with a typically equal number of high-power high-performance cores in an effort to offer on-demand performance and longer idle battery life, DynamIQ is positioned by ARM as being considerably more flexible.'DynamIQ big.LITTLE carries on the 'right processor for the right task' approach and enables configurations of big and LITTLE processors on a single compute cluster which were previously not possible,' explained ARM's Nandan Nayampally at the unveiling.'For example, 1 3 or 1 7 DynamIQ big.LITTLE configurations with substantially more granular and optimal control are now possible.'The ability to add a single high-power core to a many-core low-power chip or even to have up to eight cores all of which have independent power and performance characteristics, ARM claims, is but one of the benefits that DynamIQ will bring to the platform for embedded machine learning and artificial intelligence systems - a clear indicator of the company's focus on automotive and other embedded AI markets going forward.DynamIQ also includes dedicated processor instructions for ML and AI, the company has claimed, which will scale over the next 3-5 years to offer a fifty-fold boost in performance over the company's Cortex-A73 architecture.

Nintendo’s new Switch console is a unique gaming machine, and not just because of its hybrid status as a portable or the plethora of controller configurations.The system sees Nintendo return to using proprietary cartridges for physical copies of games, but it also has 32GB of built-in flash storage, and accepts microSD cards for expandability.There are different reasons for using each of these three storage options, but which one has the fastest load times?The folks over at Digital Foundry decided to put the Switch to the test, using the game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as part of their analysis.In order to see which type of storage had the best load times, they loaded different parts of the game from each source: the console’s internal memory, the cartridge the physical copy comes on, and two types of SanDisk microSD cards — a cheap 16GB model and a pricier 64GB Extreme Plus.The expectation was that the game cartridge would have the fastest load times, but surprisingly Digital Foundry discovered it came in last place.
