Amazon Designing New, Faster ARM-Based Processors

According to the rumor mill, Amazon is designing faster ARM-based processors for its cloud servers.

The new Amazon Web Services chip uses technology from Softbank Group Corp-owned (9984.T) Arm Holdings, the sources said. One of the sources familiar with the matter said it will be at least 20% faster than Amazon’s first Arm-based chip, named Graviton, which was released last year as a low-cost option for easier computing tasks.
