ARM launches a new CPU and GPU to enhance virtual reality on mobile devices

ARM Cortex-A73

With the introduction of DayDream for Android that will come with the new version, new devices must have certain characteristics in the hardware to enhance the use of virtual reality. Samsung, HTC, LG, Xiaomi and so many more are already preparing terminals that offer support appropriate to this big news from Google on Android.

ARM also is adding to the virtual reality party and announced the chip Cortex-A73 and the graphics chip in Computex 2016 Mali-G71. Both chips will be available next year with specifications that provide support to virtual reality. Two chips that will be more powerful than its previous predecessors, but that at the same time will have improved energy efficiency that will affect a better autonomy in the battery.

There are several manufacturers of chips, such as MediaTek, Huawei HiSilicon, Marvell and other seven more, which already have new chips licensed from ARM and have started to try them. Supposedly at the beginning of the coming year will be when we begin to see mobile devices with Cortex-A73 and Mali-G71.

With regard to the properties of these two chips, the Cortex-A73 is 30% faster than the A72 and is manufactured using the 10nm with FinFET. This means that the chip measures less than the.65 mm. The Mali-G71 will offer support to 4K resolution with a 120 Hz refresh rate. What is a 33 per cent on the ratio of minimum needed for virtual reality 90 Hz refresh. The graphics chip is responsible for updating the display 120 frames per second.

This Mali-G71 graphics chip is 50% faster and 20% more efficient than the previous Mali-T880. It has a latency of 4ms and has 32 shader cores, indicating that you display sharper images from a phone.
