ARM announces its new 64-bit microprocessors: Cortex-A50 Series
Yesterday AMD announced its future Opteron microprocessors based on ARM64 , and during the announcement, Warren East, CEO of arm promised a surprise for today, which was soon brought to light: the new microprocessor ARM Cortex-A50 Series.
The ARM Cortex microprocessor line-A50 Series will consist of the CPU Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53, both form the new duo big.LITTLE to 64 bits of ARM, offering more power than the previous pair big.LITTLE to 32 bits ( Cortex-A15 + Cortex-A7), though both designs can be independently discharged.
Cortex-A57 (formerly Atlas) offers a yield of between 20-30% higher than Cortex-A15 to run both 32-bit (and higher when running native applications), but at the same time maintaining a level of consumption similar (ARM has yet to reveal an exact figure), making it the most powerful ARM CPU focused on tablets, notebooks and micro-servers (the Cortex-A57 design contemplates making SoCs with 16 or more cores, opening the door to multi designs Massively-core mercdo latter).
Cortex-A53 (formerly Apollo) offers similar performance to the Cortex-A9, but consuming just the 4th part and occupying an area 40% lower, making it a great alternative for smartphones and tablets cheap, and in the ideal companion of his elder brother Cortex-A57 running together under big.LITTLE execution.
It expects the first devices based on these two new licenses microprocesadors make their appearance from the middle of next year or early 2014, and they will be based soc made manufacturing processes 20 and 14nm.
