  1. The next big change in SoC architecture is here. Let Gary break it down for you in the way only he can.

  2. Professor Sims – Whilst I marvel at the innovative minds that develop technology, I really appreciate the mind that can explain new tech to those of us who have no tech background. Among the latter set, you are unmatched. Nicely done yet again.

  3. Sir please tell about the onboard graphics capabilities of the A76 based processor vs the i3 7th generation like i3-7130U which I happen to have on my laptop. With 12gb dd4 2133mhz installed ram, it shows 5.9gb as GPU shared graphics and seems sufficient for everyday work including Adobe light room Autocad and Photoshop. I'm curious whether a mobile processor can replace the least of i3 series and still give equivalent performance and good battery life.

  4. Your YouTube programs are very educative. In fact I have developed interest in Android phones after seeing your videos. Kudos!

  5. This coupled with apple announcing they will make their own CPU for Mac, I can see the ARM platform overtaking x86 on desktop completely within the future.

  6. For most users, their behavior pattern will not change. They'll open same apps regardless of what devices they buy or what's processor inside.
    That's why faster processor is not a must for them if older one still opening their apps just fine. What most users really need is better power efficiency for longer battery time. Every year there's a slight boost of efficiency but still not enough.

  7. New chips are all fun and games until OEM manufacturers decide not to provide or write feature set to save money on licences or what not that enables new features even on some flagships. Like my OnePlus 3 with Usb type C @ Usb 2.0 speed and no x12 modem to name a few!

  8. just 4 years to design new architecture from scratch. That is THE achievement, especially taking in account how much was achieved with new design.
    P. S. making any advancements taking in account number of transistors in core is THE achievement every and each time, add there is not much breathing room there as number of transistors is in tens of thousands, not in millions or billions as with pretty much all modern x86_64

  9. Gary, pls help me. This new SoC can work in 3.0GHz, so why does Windows performance on ARM SoC sucks?
    And is it same with Linux kernel?
