New AWS processing chip "will be 20% faster"
AWS is working on a second-generation processing chip that looks set to speed up its data centres by a fifth. Reuters quoted two sources who said AWS expect a 20% gain with the new chips, though neither AWS or Arm Holdings - the chip manufacturer - commented. If successful, AWS will be less reliant on chips from Intel and AMD. AWS and Arm released Graviton, its first iteration, last year.
