The new processors from ARM provides the brainpower for our mobile devices to cope with advanced artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies.
ARM said, the new Cortex-A75, Cortex-A55 processors, and new Mali-G72 graphics processor, have been designed to address the changing nature of computers driven by AI and other more human-like experiences.
The new Cortex-A architecture enables system-on-a-chip (SoC) architecture designers to scale up to eight cores in a single cluster.
Based on ARM’s DynamIQ big.LITTLE technology, each core is used as the “right processor for the right task,” diverting commands and control depending on application and system tasks, thereby improving overall power usage and efficiency.
According to ARM, the Cortex-A processors also contain dedicated processor instructions for machine learning and AI tasks. ARM said, during the next three to five years the AI performance can increase by over 50 times.
The Cortex-A75 will deliver a 50 percent increase in performance in comparison to current devices. The ML and VR-ready processor is also suitable for autonomous vehicle use, particularly when speedy responses are required.
The new processor is capable of delivering up to 2.5 times the power efficiency than older models.
The Mali-G72 will deliver an advanced mobile VR and gaming experience for users, and also optimizes machine learning.
The processors will be shipped in devices from the start of 2018.
