Meet ARM’s two newest cores for faster phones and greener servers
ARM has created a new family of processor cores designed with user demands for always-on computing as well as the need for more efficient computing on the data center side in mind. The new A50 family of cores will be available to chipmakers at the end of next year and ARM expects devices containing those cores to hit the market in 2014 and 2015.
Unlike Intel or even Qualcomm, ARM doesnt build or design chips, but instead licenses its technology to other chipmakers who take the ARM IP and build chips or systems on a chip around those core designs. The new cores are designed in a big version that offers 64-bit processing and more powerful cores, and a 32-bit little version that is aimed at the mobile market. The big A-57 core will deliver three times more performance at the same power... [via Gigaom]
