ARM’s New CPU And GPU Cores Designed For Better Performance

May 30, 2017 05:51 PM EDT


Several reports have been gathered for some revelation of the latest technology coming from microprocessor designer ARM Expected; the premium Cortex-A75 CPU core and the mid-range Cortex-A55 core.

According to Anand Tech, the Cortex-A75 core provides 16 percent to 48 percent enhanced performance than the Cortex-A73 as studied and tested by several benchmark sites. However, the Octane 2.0 site has recently been discounted so the high score should have some notes next to it.

Reports gathered that the Cortex-A55 was engineered and designed to be useful in mid-range processors, or even paired with the Cortex-A75m for Big.LITTLE processors. The latter are comprised of a premium high-end core for power-intensive tasks, and a lower end core to support general housekeeping. This Cortex-A55 also improves its performance by 14 percent up to 97 percent compared to the ortex-A53, which only provides 15 percent improved battery efficiency.

As noted by Hot Hardware, the Cortex-A55 and the Cortex-A75 are the first ever chips designed by ARM to use the company's DynamIQ technology. This allows chipset designers to mix and match as many as eight CPU cores in a single cluster. Inside from it, developers can use combinations such as 1+ 7, 2+6, 3+5, 4+4 mixing with any configurations.

The CPU cores announced by ARM were built using the firm's new ARMv8.2-A architecture, in which they can't be combined with older ARMv8-A based CPUs such as the Cortex-A73 and Cortex-A53. Meanwhile, another thing was expected to be revealed is the new Mali-G72 graphics chip. This new GPU will give 20 percent improved performance over the G - 71 GPU with 25 percent better power efficiency.

For the fact that ARM doesn't produce these chips, but it provides designs for manufacturers such as MediaTek, Qualcomm, and Samsung. Consumers can learn more, especially when it comes to availability of chips using these new designs. Stay tuned for more updates.
