Arm Details Next-Gen v9 Processor Core Designs
Arm today announced details of its v9 processor core designs, which scale from smartwatches to laptops and compose what Arm calls its "Total Compute Solution". The suite of designs includes several new Cortex CPU cores, several new Mali GPU (graphics) cores, and a new interconnect design to link the cores that's 15% more efficient than before. The new core designs are faster and more power-efficient across the board, while introducing new security features. The new flagship CPU core is the Cortex X2, which is 16% faster than the X1 it replaces. The new standard "big" core is the A710, which is 10% faster and 30% more efficient than the A78 it replaces. The new A510 low-power "little" core is 35% faster and 20% more efficient than the A55 it replaces. The A510 also suitable as a main core for wearables like smartwatches. On the graphics side, the flagship Mali G710 GPU core is 20% faster than the G78 it replaces. At the other end of the lineup is the Mali G310, which Arm claims is the most performant entry-level GPU, rendering the Android interface twice as fast as previous-generation GPUs. Arm licensees like MediaTek, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Apple are expected to announce chips using the updated Arm architecture by the end of this year, with the first phones using this technology reaching the market in 2022.
