Arm has revealed three new solutions, hoping to bolster the 5G, IoT and AI markets as they takeoff heading into the next generation. These technologies look to enhance the customer experience of appliances as large as an autonomous vehicle, to something as small but equally powerful as your smartphone.
Firstly, there’s the Cortex-A77 CPU, looking to enable meta language and augmented/virtual reality experiences within mobile devices. With an increased IPC performance, improved up to 20 per cent, as well as enhanced integer and FP performances, by 20 and 35 per cent respectively, the Cortex-A77 aims to build on the already complex smartphone experience.
Secondly, there’s the Mali-G77 GPU: with an improved Valhall architecture, the new model offers a 40 per cent performance update. More importantly, with a 60 per cent advancement on machine learning performance, boosting on-device intelligence as a result, the Mali-677 enables a wider design capability for mobile applications.
Finally, the machine learning (ML) processor, as a part of Project Trillium, Arm’s heterogeneous ML compute platform, offers increased energy efficiency, improved memory compression techniques and scaled performance, up to 8-cores.
