ARM's new Cortex-A73 CPU, Mali-G71 GPU will power mobile VR in 2017

ARM at Computex 2016 has announced their new mobile and graphic processor technologies, the Cortex A73 CPU and Mali G71 GPU, designed for flagship devices of 2017. Both the CPU and GPU will enable next gen flagship device capable of delivering VR and AR experience and run 4K contents as well.

The Cortex-A73 is built using 10nm process using FinFET technology, that allows the chip to measure less than .65 square mm. It is claimed to be 30 percent faster than the A72, offering 30 percent increase in performance.

The Mali-G71 GPU uses the new GPU architecture called Biforst with up to 32shader cores and is Vulkan optimized. It  promises 50 percent increase in graphics performance and 20 percent increase in power-efficiency than the Mali T-880 GPU. It supports 4K resolution with refresh rate of up to 120Hz and alatency of 4ms.

ARM said that over 10 partners including HiSilicon, Marvell and MediaTek have licensed the Cortex A73, while the Mali-G71 GPU has been licensed by HiSilicon, MediaTek and Samsung. (Source | Via)
