Cortex-A50 Chips With Thrice Performance Increase By ARM


                      The A50 Cortex chips have been announced by ARM today,which are supposed to be 3 times faster than the fastest processors of today, keeping battery life in mind as well.T ARM’s timeline matched AMD’s as well, as they expect to ship the first A50-based devices to ship in 2014.
ARM promises Cortex-A50 chips with 3X performance increase by 2014

                  ARM says that the performance boosts will be due to multi-threading improvements, a shift to 64-bit processing, and perhaps most importantly a die-shrink, as the A-50 series chips will be made with transistors that are a mere 20nm across. As with any die-shrink, that will lead to faster and more efficient circuitry. The backwards-compatible 64-bit processing is also interesting, as it allows chips to “seamlessly transition from a 32-bit to a 64-bit execution state”, so in the next few years phone and tablet chips will be ready for a shift to 64-bit computing (and concurrent increases in RAM size), paving the way for ever more complex mobile OSes.

           ARM also  announced two chips as the lmain products of the A50 series, the Cortex-A53 and the Cortex-A57. The A57 will be the high-end performance chip, and we can expect to see them in some of the most beastly mobile devices in 2014 . The A53 will be held to around the same computational power as todays Cortex-A9 processors, but they will be much smaller in size and use about 1/5th of the energy. The size-shrink might make them more useful for wearable computers and other embedded devices, with more battery juice as well
             On the other hand,Intel is also not left behind.They are already seeing the future dominated by 48 core processors! 
          What do you reckon?
