Avoiding common performance pitfalls
CPU performance is highly dependent on choices such as: processor speed, cache size, interconnect, memory speed, data ordering, data width and optimal integration of the IP blocks.
The following resources aim to highlight some of the common performance pitfalls you might encounter.
- Webinar - Three Tips For Maximising Your SoC Performance explains the methodologies and analysis techniques used at Arm, plus how these link to CPU performance.
- Webinar - How to optimize a system with the latest Arm DynamIQ processors explains the guidance available for the Arm DynamIQ processors, plus the new Arm Mali-G72 GPU.
- Design Reviews are a service offered by Arm whereby expert engineers visit our partners to perform a detailed review of a particular stage of the design cycle. Based on that review they can provide feedback, best practice advice and propose solutions to any issues identified. The Arm Community blog post Finding design errors before it’s too late shows some real-life examples of how Design Reviews were applied and saved Arm partners time and money.
- The System performance analysis at Arm white paper looks at the methodology and different levels of analysis undertaken during Arm performance system analysis.
