ARM (ARMH) has launched its Cortex-A50 CPU core line: the first two designs are the A57, which ARM claims delivers 3x the performance of the processors found in today's high-end phones, and the smaller A53, which supposedly can match the performance of said processors while consuming 1/4 as much power. Initial licensees include AMD (previous), Broadcom, Samsung, and STMicroelectronics. Absent are Qualcomm and Apple, who use custom ARM cores. The first A50-based chips are due in 2014.

  • That math is brilliant. But 20nm is not up and running yet, and Apple and QCOM are on their own ARM silicon and probably won't switch. Plus, Due in 2014. When Atom's released by Intel.

     

    The beauty of it all is, how can an ARM processor perform under a real software like Microsoft or Mac? 2 years is a lot of time for smartphone and tablet software to become more efficient and require heavier workloads. Just my 2 cents.
