ARM Computex Taipei 2016 pre-show press and analyst conference with EVP & Chief Commercial Officer, Rene Hass and VP Marketing and Strategy of CPU Group, Nandan Nayampally launch ARM Cortex-A73 and ARM Mali-G71. This video also includes the Q&A towards the end of the video. You can also watch my Interview with Nandan Nyampally here.
ARM Cortex-A73 is the fastest ARM processor yet (30% faster than ARM Cortex-A72), ARM Mali-G71 is the fastest ARM GPU ever (50% faster than ARM Mali-T880). Sampling on 10nm before the end of this year, to be in flagship devices from early next year.
ARM Cortex-A73 enables more efficiency and performance for Mobile SoCs, at under 0.65mm2 per core (on 10nm FinFET process) the ARM Cortex-A73 is the smallest and most efficient 'big' ARMv8-A core. 30% faster, 30% more power efficient compared with ARM Cortex-A72. Size and efficiency improvements enhance the ability of silicon providers to use the Cortex-A73 in ARM big.LITTLE configurations. These improvements create further opportunities for designers to scale big cores along with the GPU and other IP in a single SoC. Ten partners have licensed ARM Cortex-A73 so far, including HiSilicon, Marvell and Mediatek. In addition to smartphones, ARM's latest premium IP suite offers the increased performance density and throughput required for other consumer electronics applications such as large-screen compute devices, industrial gateways, in vehicle infotainment and smart TVs.
ARM Mali-G71 GPU enables 50% better graphics performance (compared with Mali-T880), 20% better power-efficiency, 40% more performance per mm2. The Mali-G71 scales efficiently up to 32 shader cores, twice as many as the Mali-T880. The uplift means the Mali-G71 surpasses the performance of many discrete GPUs found in today's mid-range laptops. The product is also fully coherent, helping to simplify software development and efficiency. To power immersive VR and AR experiences on mobile devices and leading silicon providers including HiSilicon, MediaTek and Samsung Electronics have already taken licenses. Bifrost, the third-generation ARM GPU architecture, is the foundation of the Mali-G71. The architecture is optimized for Vulkan and other industry-standard APIs, building on innovations from the previous Utgard and Midgard architectures.
