The next big change in SoC architecture is here. Let Gary break it down for you in the way only he can.
Is the specter and meltdown fixes applyed in silicon this time?
Gary Sims (14 days ago)
Jaison Zhang While the move to 7nm is certainly significant, I think you have misunderstood some of the data. For example the graphs at 8:00 compare the A73, the A75 and the A76 at the same process node and the same frequency.
Jaison Zhang (14 days ago)
By "the way only he can", you mean misleading? Omitting the 7nm vs 10nm difference when comparing A76 vs A75 is just laughable. TSMC's 7nm claims 40% lower power compare to 10nm, that means A76 has close to ZERO impact on power efficiency. You can't just mention it at the beginning then go on claiming A76 has the edge without pointing (at any point) what 7nm does. A 3GHz A75@7nm would have achieved the same power efficiency with only 20% less peak performance.
Can't wait

Microsoft is dying fast...trying to use their failed smartphone technology on laptops is really going to fail whatever chip they try to use. This chip is not going anywhere either as it effectively allows microsoft to lock the bios on these portable devices to allow hackers and spyware to spy on you. Most of the worlds software portfolio is x86 which is not going to change anytime soon. So whats left? A restricted eco system from a dying brand trying to use trade monoploies to stop its ultimate demise with low sales numbers. Watch brother softs shares tank if it tries to build this one just like intel when it tried a trade monopoly with ms.

just 4 years to design new architecture from scratch. That is THE achievement, especially taking in account how much was achieved with new design. P. S. making any advancements taking in account number of transistors in core is THE achievement every and each time, add there is not much breathing room there as number of transistors is in tens of thousands, not in millions or billions as with pretty much all modern x86_64

New chips are all fun and games until OEM manufacturers decide not to provide or write feature set to save money on licences or what not that enables new features even on some flagships. Like my OnePlus 3 with Usb type C @ Usb 2.0 speed and no x12 modem to name a few!

For most users, their behavior pattern will not change. They'll open same apps regardless of what devices they buy or what's processor inside. That's why faster processor is not a must for them if older one still opening their apps just fine. What most users really need is better power efficiency for longer battery time. Every year there's a slight boost of efficiency but still not enough.
Veerabhadra Ravula (11 days ago)

Dipanshu Biswas (13 days ago)
Sir please tell about the onboard graphics capabilities of the A76 based processor vs the i3 7th generation like i3-7130U which I happen to have on my laptop. With 12gb dd4 2133mhz installed ram, it shows 5.9gb as GPU shared graphics and seems sufficient for everyday work including Adobe light room Autocad and Photoshop. I'm curious whether a mobile processor can replace the least of i3 series and still give equivalent performance and good battery life.
Dipanshu Biswas (1 day ago)
aa bb - I understand my confusion. Yes A76 based processor for mobile platform would have a graphic support Adreno or Mali (names I've heard) to perform completely. My question simply put sir, would a 64bit mobile processor with onboard graphic support perform equivalent to a 64bit Intel i3 or i5 processor with onboard graphic and still be able to give a better battery backup? Is that possible ?
aa bb (13 days ago)
Dipanshu Biswas Simply said, I think A76 is CPU, not GPU. Maybe you are referring to PowerVR, Adreno or Tegra, the GPU series that embedded into the SoC.

Can A76 cores encode 8k video ?
Gary Sims (13 days ago)
The Adreno is Qualcomm's in-house GPU. The Mali G series is Arm's GPU. Qualcomm uses its own GPU in the Snapdragon processors and Samsung uses Arm's Mali GPUs in the Exynos line.
111danish111 (13 days ago)
This is great stuff !! Thanks for the clarification . The Mali V76 and the Amberella H3 are a significant step toward consumer 8k . I have some confusion though . Is the Mali series incorporated into Adreno line ? Galaxy s9 wikipedia page says for the GPU: Exynos: Mali-G72 MP18 Snapdragon: Adreno 630 I have confusion between Mali and Adreno . What is the difference . Does Adreno has its own Video Processor or does it use a Mali based Video Processor ? What Video Processor does the S9 use and do you think if the S10 will potentially use the new Mali V76 video processor ?
Gary Sims (13 days ago)
Video encoding isn't handling by the CPU. Along with the Cortex-A76, Arm also announced the Mali V76 video processor. It can handle 8K encoding and decoding.
111danish111 (13 days ago)
3 Ghz multiple cores . They have a come a long way from their flagship revolutionary at that time 1 Ghz single core which was in my first android phone Google Nexus One .

YCANCM (13 days ago)
I don't think companies will jump to 7 nm. The 10 nm is working great and there space to improve. I think they would make it in 2020 or 2021 but not next year. The physics and the size 7 nm do not get together very will as my software engineering friend told me. So I don't know if they can make 7 nm ready by 2019

I wonder if the Snapdragon 855 will use this architecture, because this sounds promising. I was thinking about treating myself to a Google Pixel 3 this year after using a Nexus 5 for 4 years now, but I'm starting to question how I'd feel next year with the new and much improved architecture knowing I watched this video in advance.

Cortex A76 7nm @3.0GHz Very poor clock speed!!!
LowLightVideos (14 days ago)
AnandTech's article: "Arm's Cortex-A76 CPU Unveiled: Taking Aim at the Top for 7nm" (page 4) says that 3GHz will be optimistic for a smartphone using these cores because "mobile chips generally aren’t performance binned but rather power binned, vendors need to lower the target clock to get sufficient volume for commercialisation". On page 1 they say: "In Arm’s words, it’s a “laptop-class” performance processor with mobile efficiency. The vision of the A76 as a laptop-class processor had been emphasised throughout the TechDay presentation ...". SoCs for smartphones may only have 1 or 2 of these cores with the remainder comprising of A55's - so the benefit will be limited to a few threads in this first round with the subsequent version realizing more tweaks and possibly a 4+4. For a phablet or larger, with a larger battery, as long as 8-10 hours can be obtained all will be good, but for a smartphone fewer hours than that will meet with dismay. Indeed AnandTech's article *projectively* _estimates_ that these cores will fall short of Apple's A10 and A11 - and with Samsung putting the 845 onto 7nm it will fall short there too. As per the usual, next year's gonna be great! I wouldn't call this a _leading_ smartphone SoC before then, and probably later than that.
LowLightVideos (13 days ago)
Yes, at semimd there's an article: "Logic Densities Advance at IEDM 2017", which says: "Most of the semiconductor production equipment being used for fabrication of 10nm chip will also be used for 7nm manufacturing, according to Woo. Those 7nm chips will be 10 to 15 percent faster than 10nm chips, while reducing power consumption by 35 to 40 percent, she said.". The 845 is quite good for power consumption, so a 20% performance wouldn't be impossible; if that comes from a tiny bit of IPC it looks like a 500 MHz boost is coming, putting it well past 3 GHz. 2+2+4 is better (for perf) than 4+4, so maybe we'll see a bit of that too and a more aggressive clock like 3.5 (on the 4's, with one of the 2's slower).
111danish111 (13 days ago)
However Galaxy S9 already has four 2.8 GHz cores so I doubt if they will have too much trouble increasing it by 200 Mhz .
Gary Sims (13 days ago)
I think for the mid-range then you are going to see SoCs with 2 Cortex-A76 and 6 A55, more maybe even 1+7. However for the high-end we will certainly see 4+4 processors.

Isaac Adam (14 days ago)
Gary Sims Oh man...
Gary Sims (14 days ago)
Isaac, it won't be available in *all* laptops and *all* smartphones, that just isn't possible. Also, the cost of the processor has little to do with the overall cost of the current Arm based Windows 10 Always-Connected PCs.
Isaac Adam (14 days ago)
Gary Sims But does it mean that the laptops and smartphones of 2019 will be cheaper?
Isaac Adam (14 days ago)
Gary Sims I see. Hopefully this Cortex A-76 will be available to all laptops and smartphones by 2019.
Gary Sims (14 days ago)
The Snapdragon 850 is based on the Cortex-A75. It is a possible for the SD1000 and next Kirin. Certainly won't be in the A12.

davidlt (14 days ago)
Based on leaked information (e.g. via LinkedIn profiles) it's currently called 855. Of course nothing stops Qualcomm from changing it before making a release. Remember that 850 is not for smartphones, it's a different line of SOCs. There are also rumors about 1000 series, which might be 12W solution (definitely for laptops).
Pratyush Kishore (14 days ago)
I think they will not call it 855 but something bigger as the performance increase is quite high compared to 850 which are basically overclocked 845s
Gary Sims (14 days ago)
The 850 is a different processor, it has already been announced and it is basically a Snapdragon 845 tweaked for laptops. It uses the Cortex-A75.
Ben Dunn (14 days ago)
Isn’t it being called the 850 not the 855?
Gary Sims (14 days ago)
I think it is safe to say that the next Snapdragon processor for 2019's flagships will be based on the A76. If Qualcomm follows its schedule from last year then it will be announced some time towards the end of this year.

Every OEM are interested on CPU performance rather than GPU, the mid-ranger and budget phones have very inefficient and less powerful GPUs, and it's the same GPU with some less power consumption but almost the same bandwidth.

Isn't moving from 10nm to 7nm already means 30% bettey performance and battery efficeiancy? So the new Arch only gives 5% better performance and 10% efficeiancy if they are both 10nm ?

I think, part of this was explained in recent Computex ARM event. IIRC, on the same node performance is 20 or 25%, not 35%. You need to find the video for more details.
