ARM has arrived at Computex 2017 with a couple of new smartphone processors that it has developed with the express purpose of powering artificial intelligence-based solutions on mobile devices. That’s not surprising at all given that artificial intelligence is in vogue these days and as the industry makes a shift towards this technology, we can expect companies like ARM to follow suit as well.

ARM claims that its new Cortex-A75 CPU core delivers laptop-level performance without using any more power than existing mobile processors. The company says that compared to the previous A73 core, the new CPU core provides a 50 percent increase in performance.

The company’s new A55 CPU core is said to be 2.5 times as power efficient as the current A53 core which is an impressive improvement for a mid-range CPU. Both of the new processors rely on ARM’s “DynamIQ” foundation, it’s that design which enables the processors to be used in a variety of applications.

It’s different from ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture in the sense that it doesn’t pair an equal number of high-powered CPU cores with low-powered ones. DynamIQ works with up to eight completely different cores so one powerful core can be coupled with mid-range or lower-power cores as required.

ARM has also introduced its new Mali-G72 graphics core at Computex 2017. It’s more power efficient than its predecessor and also promises 17 percent more efficiency at machine-learning processing.

Even though these processor cores have been announced today, they won’t be available in consumer devices before 2018.
