ARM announces Cortex-A73 CPU and Mali-G71 GPU for 2017 flagships

ARM has announced their latest mobile processor and graphics processor technologies designed flagship devices in 2017 – the Cortex-A73 CPU and Mali-G71 GPU.

The Cortex-A73, at 0.65mm2 per core (on a 10nm FinFET process technology) is the smallest and most efficient ‘big’ ARMv8-A core. It claims 30% uplift in sustained performance and power efficiency over Cortex-A73 with frequencies reaching up to 2.8GHz.
