Ascenium Wants to Reinvent the CPU – And Kill Instruction Sets Altogether

Ascenium is one of the startup companies making waves in the CPU and general purpose computing design space. The company is helmed by Peter Foley, CEO and co-founder, who previously worked on Apple’s Apple I and Apple II computers as well as a long list of hardware-design focused companies. Ascenium has recently secured $16 million in funding via a Series A raise, which clearly signals a belief in the company’s mission. And what is that mission, exactly?

To outdo existing CPU architectures in both performance and power efficiency via the first software-defined processor.
