ARM's next-generation CPU cores are here and they are refinement of the Armv9.2 with a big focus on AI, as you'd expect. Aside from the upgrades to the respective big and little cores, much of the new cluster's performance boost comes from optimizations to the new 3nm architecture for both TSMC's FinFET and Samsung's GAA processes. The Cortex-X925 core is the successor to the Cortex-X4 and ushers in a change in nomenclature to keep in sync with the rest of ARM's current lineup. The new core promises a 15% higher IPC performance. The move to a 3nm process and the higher 3.6GHz...

Qualcomm is brilliant at designing chipsets, not so much at naming them. At the end of 2018 it introduced the Snapdragon 8cx, a chipset meant for Windows on ARM devices. Since then it has launched other “c” devices – the higher performance ones get the “cx” suffix, the mid-range devices get just “c”. Now the company has rethought the branding and decided to change it to Snapdragon X Series. This comes after “extensive analysis” and feedback from consumers who though that the “c” names were too easy to confuse with the Android-bound Snapdragon chips. Among many advantages of the new...

ARM’s big.LITTLE CPU configurations have been around for years and the standard practice so far has been to have as many – or more – little cores as there are big cores. This is now changing with the introduction of ARM’s new designs. The high-power Cortex-X4, middle Cortex-A720 and small Cortex-A520 were unveiled today and will work in tandem to balance between performance and efficiency. ARM also introduced the DSU-120, which is what drives the DynamIQ Shared Unit system that allows different CPU cores to work together. With the DSU-120, chipset makers can build designs with up...
