ARM launches cores for virtual and augmented reality

Pete Hutton – ARM EVP and President of Product Groups They will be in SoCs this year and in handsets in 2017. The Cortex processor – A73 – is the smallest 64-bit v8 core ARM has done – at under 0.65mm2 per core on a 10nm finfet process. The small size has been achieved by architectural improvements rather than by physical means like shrinking interconnects. It simply uses less transistors to achieve greater functionality – delivering 30% higher performance than Cortex-A72. The processor has been optimised to run at peak performance for longer, while staying within the piwer budget, to support applications like large screen computers, industrial gateways, auto infotainment and smart TVs. Ten partners have licensed the Cortex-A73 so far, including HiSilicon, Marvell and Mediatek. “In 2017, we will see devices with the Cortex-A73 and Mali-G71 processors that stand out thanks ...
