The chip designer ARM has just presented at the Computex 2019 its new CPU top range ARM Cortex-A77, a new design that as you have deduced substitutes the ARM Cortex-A76 on the podium of this brand. The new ARM Cortex-A77 does not make a breakthrough compared to the A76, since it basically uses the same architecture and continues its design to be manufactured in 7nm.
However, the improvement over the previous generation is not negligible and ARM quantifies it by 30-35% thanks to the increase in instructions per cycle with similar figures for consumption and thermal levels. These high performance cores can be combined with the ARM Cortex-A55 thanks to the compatibility with big.LITTLE technology in different combinations, although surely the most common is the 4 + 4. We assume that until the end of the year we will not see the first SoC announcements based on these new ARM CPUs.
Jointly we have also known the new GPU of last generation ARM Mali-G77 that uses the new architecture Valhall that according to ARM improves in 40% the graphical power, 30% in energetic efficiency, performance and until in a 60% in AI with respect to the previous generation Mali-G76. This new GPU can include between 7 and 16 cores is compatible with the Vulkan API, OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0, 3.1, 3.2 and OpenCL 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 Full Profile.
