ARM announces Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 GPU for your next flagship phones

Computex 2019 is kicking off now, and ARM announced its next-generation CPUs and GPUs, which is what your next flagship phone's processor will probably be based on. The new chips include the Cortex-A77 CPU and the Mali-G77 GPU, and they include significant improvements.

ARM is promising improved machine learning and mixed reality experiences with Cortex-A77, due to a 20% IPC improvement over the last generation, the Cortex-A76. It's a 7nm design, and ARM says that it's increased machine learning performance by 35x over the last two generations.

Next is the Mali-G77 GPU, which is built on the new Valhall architecture. This promises a 40% performance boost over the Mali-G76, with 30% better energy efficiency and 30% more performance density. ARM is also promising a 60% boost in machine learning performance. This also comes alongside the new Mali-D77 display processor.

ARM also announced a new ML processor, which is included in ARM's Project Trillium machine learning compute platform alongside the NN software framework. The idea is to add a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) to chipsets, and ARM says that it's increased energy efficiency by 2x, memory compression techniques by 3x, and more.

You can expect these new technologies to show up in your smartphone or ARM-powered laptop in 2020.
