Today ARM will reveal what it has up it's sleeves, with an announcement about their updated Armv8.1-M. This will add M-Profile Vector Extension to the current model, which will give a boost to it's ability to process input locally, without needing to connect to the cloud for back up. It will also include Low Overhead Branch Extensions which will optimize the performance of onboard memory. These two improvements, along with the others which you can read about at The Registerr will make your IoT devices a little more powerful in a few years, once Armv8.1-M hits the market.
"This technology is expected to be the foundation of future beefy Arm Cortex-M CPU cores that chipmakers can license and stick in their components."
