ARM has announced the next generation CPU and GPU kernel. All of them are built on Arm V9 architecture. According to the company, the one-core performance of new solutions for CPU up to 35% higher than that of the cores of the actual generation.
In the CPU segment, ARM introduced the Cortex-X2 core, Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510. The flagship core Cortex-X2 will be used as part of processors for high-performance laptops, as well as mobile devices of the future generation. The “large” core Cortex-A710 are suitable for use in both laptops and mobile devices. Cortex-A510 are the first new “small” ARM cores presented in the last four years. According to the manufacturer, they are able to show themselves perfectly when working with small and background loads and are ready to provide almost the same performance as “big” cores of the current generation.
ARM notes that the performance in single-threaded applications in Cortex-X2 is up to 16% higher than that of the corex-x1 cores of the current generation. In addition, they are twice as more efficient in the tasks associated with the operation of the AI algorithms (matrix multiplication). In turn, Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 show by 10 and 35% higher performance in single-threaded tasks compared to the current Cortex-A78 and Cortex-A55 kernels. At the same time, Cortex-A710 twice, and the Cortex-A510 is three times better cope with the tasks associated with the AI. It is also noted that the Cortex-A510 IPC nuclei indicator is 10% increased by 10%, and the frequency of operation is 15%. At the same time, they are 35% energy efficient.
Cortex-X2 kernels will support the new Dynamiq Shared Unit layout (DSU-110). Within its framework, the clusters can be used up to eight Cortex-X2 cores that will support up to 16 MB of 3-level cache memory, as well as up to 32 MB of unified system-level cache memory (System Level Cache, SLC). Computing blocks of the processor and GPU, as well as memory will be combined with new CoreLink CI / NI-700 tires.
The following layouts of the cores for the final CPU are announced today: four Cortex-X2 and four Cortex-A710, one Cortex-Z2, three Cortex-A710 and four Cortex-A510, four Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510, two Cortex-A710 and Six Cortex-A510, and finally four Cortex-A510.
Mali’s Mobile Graphic Processor Series has replenished three new GPU: Mali-G710, Mali-G510 and Mali-G310. The first model is flagship. It has been stated an increase in productivity up to 20% and improving work in machine-learning tasks by 35% compared with the current GPU Mali-G78.
GPU Mali-G510 is designed for applications such as television and augmented reality, where it will show up to 22% better performance than existing solutions, as well as provide doubling performance in machine learning. In turn, Mali-G310 is designed to use in low-cost devices. For him, the company states a six-fold increase in texturing performance.
All presented novelties will form the basis of chipsets for laptops and mobile devices that will begin to be issued from 2022.
