NEON technology is a 64/128-bit hybrid SIMD architecture developed by ARM to accelerate the performance of multimedia and signal processing applications […].
The NEON architecture provides at least 3x the performance of ARMv5 and 2x the performance of ARMv6 SIMD on a range of media and DSP applications.
