New ARM designs clocked

By Katyanna Quach, 31 May 2016

Chip design boffins at ARM have unveiled specs for the Brit firm's latest ceepie-geepie offerings.

The new Cortex-A73 CPU architecture promises to save more power, improving power efficiency by 30 per cent compared to the previous Cortex-A72, whilst boosting performance, and crucially, endurance. The new CPU will also be faster, theoretically operating at 1.3 times the peak performance of the '72.

The Mali-G71 GPU is likewise designed to improve the virtual reality experience by supporting 4K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and 4ms graphics pipeline latency.

The Mali-G71 can be built with as many as 32 shader cores, twice as many as prior ARM graphics offerings, providing crisper images.
