ARM today show off the Cortex A72, a new processor core for smartphones and tablets that delivers big gains in efficiency while still offering plenty of computing power. The company claims it reduces power consumption by 75%, but increases performance by a factor of three in smartphones. The A72 runs at up to 2.5GHz in smartphones and 3.5GHz in tablets. The chip will be made with ARM's 16 nanometer processes, which will help deliver the chip's performance improvements. The A72 will be paired with a new Mali GPU, too, for a more complete computing package. Companies such as Qualcomm and MediaTek will use the A72 in their own application processor designs. ARM said it doesn't expect to see the ARM Cortex A72 reach the market in end-user devices until early 2016.
