ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.

It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.

As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …

GeForce GTX 660/650 Ti/650 will be released in one week

An American website presented its version of the sequence of announcements of mainstream and mid-range graphics card Nvidia Kepler. It was reported earlier that the model GeForce GTX 660 will debut at retail simultaneously with the GTX 660 Ti (August 16), but as it turned out, this is not the case: despite the inclusion of systems into packages, this adapter will be available for purchase as a separate product only on the third week of September, ie from 17 to 23.

Preliminarily, GeForce GTX 660 is based on a 28-nm core Nvidia GK106-200-A2, which includes 960-1152 stream processors and 192-bit memory bus that connects the GPU with chips GDDR5 in the amount of 1.5-2 GB. The recommended price is expected to be around $ 230.

From 17 to 23 September also will be available in sale the GeForce GTX 650 Ti and GeForce GTX 650. The first is based on the graphics core GK106, but with 4-5 streaming multiprocessors SMX or 768-960 shader blocks. The total volume of GDDR5 chips will be 1 …
