ARM is facilitating the arrival of ARM SoCs to notebook computers, and for this it has now announced its new high-performance Cortex-A78C core, a revision of the original Cortex-A78 core that allows it to be combined with only other equal high-performance cores, thus differentiating itself from the ARM big.LITTLE architecture where up to 4x high-performance cores + 4x energy-efficient cores are combined.
With this change in architecture, an SoC with only 8x high-performance cores can be formed, a great help in multicore applications, something essential for a PC, and something that is only possible on a PC due to its space for dissipation and use of large batteries.
Not everything was going to be high-performance cores, and the level 3 (L3) cache has also been increased to 8 MB . Unfortunately, what matters most was not revealed, and it is to have some performance test or to know what this SoC will aspire to compared to a conventional x86 processor.
“These enhanced features are ideal for enabling high-performance, heavily threaded workloads such as ‘physics’ in games and professional productivity applications. When combined with Mali GPUs, the 8-configuration configuration is expanded and enhanced. gaming capabilities throughout the day.
Mali-G78 provides the graphics performance and improves battery life to support a more immersive gaming experience while on the go for longer. Meanwhile, the L3 cache enhancements allow developers to bring enhanced gaming experiences, such as AAA games, to next-gen devices. “
