Explaining that you are growing your cooperation with Arm over the course of the day, Samsung said the company’s goal is to exceed 3GHz in its new processors.
Samsung wants to increase the speed of its new processors and has improved its collaboration with Arm. Arm is a company that focuses on designing only semiconductor chips and licensing IP rights to IP producers. Developing small-scale chips is extremely expensive, so even large companies such as Samsung rely on Arm for some of their products.
This cooperation is important for Samsung to use the smaller part size in different shapes. For example, it will provide the ability to position more transistors per millimeter, meaning that in smaller sizes, more performance can be achieved by spending the same amount of power.
Smaller transistors have higher energy efficiency, which leads to less heat generation. Higher clock speeds mean more computing at the moment ie higher efficiency. The new chips will use Arm’s Artisan physical IP platform and will be based on Samsung Foundry’s 7LPP (7nm Low Power Plus) and 5LPE (5nm Low Power Early) production technology.
This collaboration will enable Arm’s new generation Cortex A76 processor to reach speeds above 3 GHz. While the best available CPUs provide all the performance that consumers need, artificial intelligence and machine learning modules will benefit from these new processors to a large extent. According to Samsung, the first batches of new 7nm chips will be ready by the end of the year. If we take this timeline into consideration, we can say that the first devices with the Cortex A76 will be at the beginning of 2019, the Galaxy S10 is expected to be marketed.
