Second-Generation, High-Performance CPU Based on DynamIQ Technology

The Arm Cortex-A family of high-performance processors is designed for devices that perform complex compute tasks, from edge to cloud, for next-generation experiences. Cortex-A76 enables the always-on ease of large-screen compute, to deliver laptop-class performance with mobile efficiency. A significant step forward in mobile computing, whether on a smartphone or laptop.

Features and Benefits

Superior Energy Efficiency

Improved energy efficiency and increased single-threaded performance allow Cortex-A76 to extend battery life and improve user experience across even the most complex compute tasks, including important productivity apps like Microsoft Office.

Developed for ML/AI

Cortex-A76 enables improved responsiveness and at-the-edge support for new machine learning and AI applications, and virtual experiences.

Superscalar Processor Core

Decodes, issues, and executes more instructions than previous generations. Enhancements also include full out-of-order processing, non-blocking high-throughput L1 caches, and advanced instruction and data prefetching.

Use Cases

Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

The car is the most complex electronic device many of us will buy, with more than 100 engine control units soon to become the norm for most vehicles. However, safety is a critical concern. Cortex-A76 supports the highest Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) standards, using the Cortex-R safety island to move us closer to fully autonomous vehicles.
