ARM Cortex-A72 promises big performance boost in 2016

Posted on Wednesday, February 04 2015 @ 16:39:45 CET by

ARM presented its upcoming Cortex-A72 chip design, which is intended for 2016 smartphones. This will become the fastest chip in ARM's lineup, it supports a big.LITTLE power-saving configuration by pairing up with a Cortex-A53 core and promises to be almost 90 percent faster than this year's Cortex-A57 core. Full details at The Tech Report.
The final piece of ARM's new suite of smartphone tech is an upgraded GPU known as the Mali-T880. ARM claims the T880 will achieve up to 1.8x the graphics performance of last year's mobile devices or a 40% energy reduction for the same workloads. The point of comparison here is the Mali-T760 GPU that we recently tested, but I suspect the assumptions baked into these numbers involve 28-nm silicon, not the 20-nm chip we tested. Of course, GPUs can be wider and narrower, so doing a direct comparison like we have with the A57 and A72 won't really fly without more specific information.
