ARM Adds Native FP16 Support

ARM’s Cortex-A75 and A55 feature a few interesting upgrades to the NEON SIMD engine:

  • FP16 support – without converting it first to FP32 as implemented in older architectures
  • a single instruction computing int8 dot product – potentially 4x faster over Cortex-A53
