ARM announces its new CPU Cortex-A12 and Mali-T622 GPU # CTX2013

ARM announces its new CPU Cortex-A12 and Mali-T622 GPU # CTX2013

Continuing the new product announcements from the event Computex 2013, this time it’s the turn of ARM, announcing its new and GPU, its new proposals for mid-range portable devices.

Currently, most higher-cost portable devices are based on the Cortex-A15 chip, while the vast majority of low-cost portable devices are based on the ARM Cortex-A9, Cortex-A8, Cortex-A7 and Cortex- A5, microprocessors pale before performance Cortex-A15.

ARM Cortex-A12 CPU
The yield gap between Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A9 is very large, as Cortex-A15 has a yield per cycle than double the Cortex-A9, ARM so urgently needed a product that would cover this gap, which by finally makes its appearance today: Cortex-A12.

The new ARM Cortex-A12 chip promises a 40% return per cycle top and a size 30% lower than the Cortex-A9, while maintaining full compatibility with the instruction set (32 bits), the modern execution outside order, and the execution big.LITTLE with microprocessor Cortex-A7.

ARM Mali-T622 GPU
ARM’s new GPU based on a new graphics architecture review Midgard? V2? The one that has been optimized for lower power consumption (up to 50% less than the previous implementation).

The ARM Mali-T622 GPU will be available in two configurations, one standard and one dual-core (Mali-T622 MP2). The GPU design has been optimized for use in conjunction with the Cortex-A12 CPU, and can even make sharing the second-level cache (L2) of the CPU, and its improved power management and voltage.

It is expected that the first ARM based Cortex-A12 are available from next year on products from manufacturers like Samsung, Qualcomm and others.
