A New Class of General Purpose Processor
The Ascenium Aptos is a general-purpose processor without an instruction set. Aptos belongs to a new class of processor - the Software Defined Processor. Aptos eliminates the performance bottlenecks and high power consumption of the current CPU's extremely complex hardware implementation, including the deep instruction pipeline, branch prediction, speculation and Out-of-Order execution. Aptos unleashes performance via architectural simplification!
Ascenium is Redefining How it Should be Done
LATEST AT ASCENIUM
Current general-purpose processors are based on a 50-year-old design approach based on the ISA (Instruction Set Architecture). This approach has run out of gas despite ever more exotic and expensive optimization attempts. Single-core single-thread performance gains have stalled.
Time to Think Outside the Box!
Ascenium's approach : Aptos is both a disruptive processor architecture as well as a revolutionary LLVM backend that better exploits the parallelism available in standard high level programming languages. The Aptos architecture continuously physically evolves in space and time under compiler control to optimally implement the functional intent of the user's program.
Ascenium will disrupt datacenter computing with a much higher performance and lower power solution that takes a completely different "out of box" approach to general-purpose processor architecture.
