Arm has announced a new CPU variant that can be seen in laptop SoCs. The Arm Cortex-A78C is a variant of the high-end Cortex-A78 that will power the next generation of flagship smartphones. The company launched the Cortex-A78 as its most premium Cortex-A CPU in May this year, claiming to have 20 percent sustained performance upgrades and 50 percent energy savings compared to last year’s Cortex-A77 Will increase. While the Cortex-A78 cores are almost exclusively meant for smartphones, Arm says the new Cortex-A78C will power next-generation devices, such as the always-on laptop.
Arm announced through a company blog post, Which showed that the new Cortex-A78C will support 8 large CPU core clusters for more “homogeneous multi-core computing”. In comparison, Arm’s high-end Cortex-A78 – which is expected to be part of Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 And samsung Exynos 1080 The smartphone supports 4 large CPU cores and 4 small CPU cores (Cortex-A55) in SoCs – Arm’s proprietary dynamic system.
The company says that the new, more flexible eight-core configuration of the Cortex-A78C can scale to multi-threaded performance that will improve gaming and productivity. Like the Cortex-A78, its new C variant is also compatible with the recently launched Mali-G78 GPU. The new CPU also increases L3 cache memory to 8MB, which can result in increased performance, especially when working with large datasets, the post says.
Arm also states that the new Cortex-A78C CPU enhances data and device security and that its pointer authentication code (PAC) can significantly reduce exploits that allow attackers to take on software control flows. The company says that this will help to keep data secure even when installing third-party applications.
Arm has not stated explicitly whether its new Cortex-A78 CUP will soon be part of the power laptop or mobile gaming device SoCs. If that happens, it will be interesting to see how the Cortex-A78C levels up on the laptop processor against the performance of the Intel processor core.
