First Generation Armv9 High-Efficiency “LITTLE” Cortex CPU based on Arm DynamIQ Technology

Scalability to serve multiple consumer devices

Cortex-A510 is a high efficiency Armv9 CPU that is a ground up microarchitecture design with considerable performance improvements compared to Cortex-A55. Cortex-A510 can be paired with the Cortex-X2 and Cortex-A710 in a big.LITTLE configuration, with a dynamic shared unit (DSU-110) as part of a Total Compute solution.
