ARM introduced processor Cortex-A73 and the Mali GPU – 71, designed for virtual reality

Within the framework of the Computex 2016, ARM announced the new Cortex-A73, an update of the A72 line and coming to be focused on the support to virtual reality, as well as having greater energy efficiency.

According to PhoneArena, the new chip (also known as Artemis) will be 30% more efficient and faster than the previous and it was built with 10 nanometer FinFET process. In addition, can implement speeds up to 2.8 GHz and should arrive during the next year, after the tests and licenses being made by several companies such as MediaTek, HiSilicon, Marvell, among others.

Its size is 25% smaller than the A72 line, allowing for example designs hexa – to be built core, which are of the same size as a processor A53 octa – core. In addition, this update already will be the problem of the thermal throttling (or thermal limitation), so that maximum performance can be achieved without having problems of temperature.

ARM also revealed the Mali-G71 GPU, which can support resolutions 4 K with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 33% more than those needed for virtual reality, as well as a saving of 20% of energy consumption in relation to the Mali-T880 and has optimization for the latest graphics, Vulkan API.
