The new 5G network standard, which will bring faster speeds and lower latency to mobile devices, is expected to start rolling out later this year, with wider deployment happening in earnest next year.

The Cortex-A76 processor is based on Arm's DynamIQ technology, and it can deliver a 35% performance gain and 40% improved power efficiency in comparison to Cortex-A75 released previous year. They're also being built with laptops in mind, particularly the always-connected, Windows 10-powered notebooks that promise LTE connectivity and all-day battery life.

ARM has also added the Mali G76 GPU and the Mali V76 video processor for high resolution displays to its portfolio.

For more in-depth technical details on the Mali-V76, visit our blog.

Arm highlights the fact that it could easily ramp up performance if energy efficiency wasn't a concern but it has still managed to "bridge the performance gap without compromising on efficiency".

Mobile chip-maker Arm has unveiled a new set of high-end processor tech, targeting laptops, premium smartphones, and AR/VR devices as it cranks up the pressure on Intel and AMD.

Thousands more died from Hurricane Maria than official death toll
If a member of the family was reported lacking however not recognized to be deceased, researchers counted them as alive. Puerto Rico's Governor Ricardo Rosselló , who himself is a scientist, seemed blindsided by the Harvard study.


This is the reason why ARM gave the Cortex-A76 its performance uplift of 35 per cent over the current generation, to "make a real-world difference" to the tasks it can perform.

Apple's advantage comes from a more desktop-like design than Arm would dare to do.

ARM, the Britain-based semiconductor giant has announced a number of new products including a new CPU, GPU, and a VPU. Think of it as an analogue to Intel's past Tick-Tock strategy, but rather Tock-Tock-Tock for Arm with steady CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 20-25% every generation coming from µarch improvements.

Due to its support for INT8 operations and other improvements, Cortex-A76 will also be able to deliver 4x inference performance. These figures are baselined on A75 configurations running at 2.8GHz on 10nm processes while the A76 is projected by Arm to come in at 3GHz on 7nm TSMC based products.

Based on the DynamIQ technology, the new Cortex-A76 CPU is promoted as a "laptop-class" CPU by ARM. The G76 will allow developers to create games with higher graphics and support for virtual reality with 30 percent more performance and battery life.

The processor is meant to be a versatile playback tool for VR applications to even video walls- a 4×4 array of full HD displays or a 2×2 array of 4K displays. It can also support 16 1080p streams, enabling the creation of 4x4 video walls, which are popular in the Chinese market.
