ARM unveiled a Cortex-A17 core for midrange mobile devices, which will appear first in a MediaTek MT6595 octa-core SoC that includes four 2.5GHz -A17 cores. ARM compares the Cortex-A17 with the Cortex-A9, claiming 60 percent faster performance and improved power and area efficiency.
Phoronix: ARM Cortex-A15 Quad-Core Linux ODROID-XU Tests
When the first ARM Cortex-A15 SoCs started rolling out in devices I found the dual-core A15 performance to be crazy fast for ARM and still find the Cortex-A15 performance to be great for low-power devices.
With mobile phones and tablets getting more advanced every single day, so does the hardware that goes inside them. Mobile chip designer ARM and TSMC have managed to create the first 64-bit Cortex-A57 processor. Even more impressive, they did it utilizing 16nm technology developed by TSMC.
I have a cubieboard 2 : ARMv7l Cortex-A7 dual core and this will be the first time I build linux from scratch. I know I could download an image but I want to learn how to do it and configure things myself, and I have been a SWE for many years.
I have downloaded crosstool-ng and I am trying to figure out what configuration I should take. I see things for cortex a8 and a9, arm-unknown etc.
Amlogic has begun sampling a new system-on-chip (SoC) that combines a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, an ARM Mali-400 GPU, and Amlogic's proprietary HD video decoding engine. Targeting next-generation consumer electronics running Linux and Android 2.2, the AML8726-M supports full 1080p HD video capabilities and a range of connectivity options, says the company....
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, has confirmed that his company is working on three new processors for its devices. While one is a quad-core chipset, the two others are octa-core. The quad-core chipset is based on ARM Cortex-A9 and one of the octa-core chipsets is based on ARM Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7.
