The next gen 10 nm mobile CPU runs at 3.5 GHz and 0.5 V, with an outstanding energy efficiency of 0.25 mW/MHz. Additionally, Intel and ARM will update the existing Cortex A55 to Intel's 22 nm manufacturing process, which will enable it to run at 2.35 GHz and 0.4 V.

Intel might still be leading in the desktop/laptop PC CPU sector, but when it comes to mobile device processors, ARM is the uncontested leader. It looks like the two companies have agreed to collaborate on a next gen mobile processor that will use the 10 nm HPM manufacturing processes, as well as update the current Cortex A55 that will use Intel’s 22 nm process. The announcement was made at the ARM Tech Con 2017, where the British company presented its future plans that involve Intel.

The update on the Cortex A55 will allow the mid-range mobile CPU to work at 2.35 GHz and 0.45 V, bringing a 30% performance boost and 100 times lower energy leaks over the 28 nm current model. As for the next gen 10 nm mobile CPU, this is expected to ship to OEMs by the end of 2017. Current test models are clocked at 3.5 GHz and 0.5 V, and its energy efficiency is 0.25 mW/MHz.

Apple’s A11 Bionic SoC found in the latest iPhone 8/X models is currently the fastest on the market, but 2018 should bring even faster SoCs that use the next gen 10 nm Cortex A CPUs.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
