For faster ARM Powered laptops, smartphones, servers and more, Nandan Nayampally, GM & VP of ARM’s Compute Processing Group announces the ARM Cortex-A75 and ARM Cortex-A55, the new fastest performance, most power efficient ARM designs for high end performance and for mid-range to entry level processing, the first processors launched on ARM DynamIQ technology, designed from the ground up for AI improvements, low latency, acceleration connections, ARM Cortex-A75 delivers 50% improvement in raw integer performance, even greater gains for specialized workloads at given nanometer manufacturing, with these also working even better on newer smaller nanometer manufacturing making these all that faster. ARM Cortex-A75's new performance enables faster ARM Powered Laptops and Smartphones with faster performance and better power efficiency, also suitable for infrastructure (servers, networking, more) and self driving cars and other uses in the automotive industry. ARM Cortex-A55 provides the new LITTLE to Cortex-A75’s big, with 2.5x the power efficiency of its predecessor, bringing performance to the edge across a variety of applications and performance points from IOT edge gateways to mainstream. Combining the two new CPUs in a DynamIQ big.LITTLE cluster gives you multiple configurations, and specifically doubles performance in a 1+7 configuration for example.

Marvell AndromedaBox Networking Edge development board, following the http://96boards.org size but with larger ports than the initial 96boards spec, it that can be configured to be used in many applications such as mobile NAS (network-attached storage), IoT gateways, home cloud server etc. The board features the 64bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 Marvell Armada 3700 processor, PCI-E 2.0 support, a USB 3.0 port, a SATA 3.0 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port, WiFi 802.11ac built in, 8GB of eMMC memory, and Bluetooth 4.2.
The projector shown first is Acer's Predator Z850 model, capable of projecting ultra-wide aspect ratio a 120" screen at 47cm distance. Rated for a brightness of 3000 lumen, the 1080p projector features an Ethernet port, USB port, and dual HDMI inputs, as well as three different modes of projection for particular game scenes. Also on display is Acer's Predator gaming line, including a tablet, a phone, desktops, laptops and monitors (with nVidia's G-Sync technology).
Director of marketing at Marvell SoC product line, here introducing the Marvell Armada 7040 and 8040, featuring dual or quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 configurations with Marvell MoChi and FLC Architecture. The demo quad-core board is shown running two virtual machines with a stress test for two cores. The board comes in 12Gbps (7040) and 24Gbps (8040) variants for network data processing, with a separate IC die for handling network functions. Prospective applications include 4-way NAS devices, network switches, running 3x(4x4) 802.11ac routers etc.
On display here is the SECO UDOO x86, a computer along the lines of Raspberry Pi that combines a processor (a 2.56GHz 14nm quad-core Intel 64-bit part), RAM (up to 8GB), and storage (8GB eMMC upgradable to 32GB). The board features WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 (integrated Intel Curie microcontroller), and a fanless design. It can drive up to 3 4K displays via the 1xHDMI and 2XMini DisplayPorts. It is intended for use as a Windows/Linux/Android x86 computer, or as a development board for universities and students. The basic version starts at US$89.
The Acer Chromebook 14 ($274 at Amazon) is a Chrome OS device that comes fully finished in metal for around US$300. Equipped with 14" 768p (1366x768) or 1080p (1920x1080) pixel display, dual or quad-core Intel Celeron processors, 4GB RAM, 16/32GB of Flash storage, 2xUSB 3.1 ports, the Chromebook 14 is meant primarily for web usage and light office applications. Claimed battery life is up to 14 hours for the lower-resolution version.
Synology, a Taiwan-based company specializing in NAS (network-attached storage) devices, has on display their RT2600ac router. The router is claimed to have a throughput of 2600Mbps. Equipped with four antennae, four LAN ports, 1xUSB2.0 port, 1xUSB3.0 port, and an SDHC card reader. The router runs Synology's OS for routers, dubbed Synology Router Manager (SRM) 1.1, that allow for features such as being able to roll back files on the network to their previous versions and load balancing between different network inputs. The router can accept multiple internet connections including cellular data dongles via USB.
Displayed here is Marvell's broad range of network switch solutions running ARM processors. The first board uses dual-core ARM Cortex-A9. has 24x10Gbps Ethernet ports and two additional 40Gbps ports. Marvell's ARM CPUs come embedded with their security engine that allows for monitoring data activity. We also see their prosumer range meant for professional use, with support for a 10Gigabit port.
