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 …

It’s Already Here! Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Officially Launched

Several months of prolonged rumors have ended in the final release of the much-wanted graphics card from Nvidia — GeForce GTX 780, designed for desktop devices. This is the second solution from this manufacturer for mainstream market, developed in accordance with 28 nm technological process (after Titan series), and the first representative of Nvidia GeForce 700 series. The product is based on Nvidia GK110 graphics core that features 2304 current processors, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs.



With the attempt to enhance the card’s productivity and make it rival with Titan solutions, Nvidia has dynamically increased GPU clock frequencies from 837 MHz to 863 MHz (nominal) and from 876 MHz to 900 MHz (overclocked). This adapter employs PCI Express 3.0 internal interface. Power supply is realized by means of two power connectors: one 6-contact connector and one 8-contact connector.


In regards to video memory, the manufacturer incorporates highly-efficient GDDR5 modules with 384-bit …
