Fresh off a dramatic journey Not being bought By Nvidia, Arm has announced its latest flagship CPU. Coming soon to your 2023 Android device, we have Cortex-X3 and Arm Cortex-A715 CPUs.

As usual, these designs will be part of a system-on-chip CPU cluster. Taking the normal layout, the proposed design of the arm will have a 2023 SoC with a large Cortex-X3 core, three medium-core Cortex 715 CPUs and four smaller Cortex-510 cores, coming back from the current generation.

Arm promises that the X3 CPU will improve performance by 25 percent compared to the X2, while the Cortex A715 claims “20 percent power efficiency increase and 5 percent performance improvement” compared to the current generation Cortex A710. Arm claims that the A715 will be as fast as the Cortex X1 CPU since 2020. The A715 also drops 32-bit support, making it the last part of our theoretical flagship SoC to be just 64-bit. The smaller A510 CPU is coming back, but Arm says it’s “an updated version” with a 5 percent power reduction.

A 25 percent year-over-year improvement for the largest CPU alone would not fire any benchmark charts. For reference, Our test Shows Apple’s A15 is about 38 percent faster than the best Android phones (single and multi-core tested) and a single large CPU increase of 25 percent means 2023 Android phones will still be much slower than the 2021 iPhone. Apple uses arm architecture but not arm design, because Apple seems to be a better arm chip designer.

The distance of an arm’s length from the actual product

Arm’s announcement only Design Which other companies can use for an actual consumer chip and most of the time it means Qualcomm or Samsung SoC. The distance between the arm and a final product means you have to take the company’s projected performance claims with a grain of salt, as it still has to be filtered through someone else’s execution of the arm’s design. Last year, none of Arm’s X2 speculations came true. The company has promised “30 percent faster“The CPU, when in reality, is the X2-based chip on the market Was slow Or equivalent to X1 chips from the previous year.

There Rumors already That Qualcomm will not use Arm’s proposed SoC design layout for its 2023 chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Rumor has it that the layout of Qualcomm will be a Cortex X3, two Cortex A720s, two A710 CPUs of the current generation and three A510 CPUs. The Fairness For this it will be that Qualcomm still does not want to completely eliminate 32-bit support for the Chinese market and the 32-bit train will continue to run if two A710 CPUs are pulled from 2022 next year.

Arm has also announced a new GPU design, which most vendors don’t usually use. Qualcomm has its own GPU division, Adreno, and Samsung now makes GPUs Including AMD. Your best bet to see a flagship arm GPU on a product is with a rare flagship Mediatek SoC. For the price, the new ARM GPU has a new branding called “Immortal GPUThe Immortalis-G715 is the first arm-designed GPU with hardware ray tracing (Samsung and AMD announced similar features last year). Arm claims that the GPU is 15 percent faster than last year.

Arm is telling its partners to be crazy with the big, M2-fighting chip design, but we’re not sure anyone is listening.

Arm also hopes that vendors will enhance Arm chips with SoC designs made for laptops and desktops. The company has created a new configuration that will include eight X3 CPUs, four A715 CPUs and Zero Little Core. Arm tried to float the same idea last year when it suggested a chip with eight X2 CPUs, but we don’t think anyone took the company on offer. Qualcomm is finally planning to attack the laptop market Towards the end of 2023 With chips designed by its Nubia acquisition.
