The super large core of them is Cortex X1. The large core is Cortex A78. And the small core is Cortex A55.Cortex-X1 is the first commercial product of ARM “CXC Project”. In terms of performance, Cortex-X1 will be 30% higher than Cortex-A77. Relative to Cortex-A78, Cortex-X1’s integer arithmetic performance increases by 23%. Cortex-X1 also has twice the machine learning capabilities of Cortex-A78. The main frequency of Cortex-A78 is up to 3GHz, and the performance per core per watt increases by 20% relative to the previous generation.
Compared with the Snapdragon 865, the new generation of Snapdragon flagship processors introduces a super-large core for the first time. It may inherit the 5G baseband. We also expect it to become Qualcomm’s first integrated 5G flagship SoC.
