Hardware provider Arm has announced the release of new processors it says is better suited for a 5G world. The new Cortex-A77 CPU provides advanced machine learning capabilities, the Mali-G77 GPU offers a new architecture for mobile experiences, and the Arm Machine Learning processor has been improved with increases to energy efficiency and memory compression.

“Looking ahead, perhaps one of the biggest challenges we face today is the number of different solutions available in the market. A seemingly endless list of software options and hardware architectures amplifies the ecosystem fragmentation, making scalability from edge to cloud very difficult. Not to mention, it’s increasingly difficult for developers and for the adoption of new technologies. 5G will demand performance and efficiency, which means we need a common architecture to ease design and deployment,” Rene Haas, president of IPG at Arm, wrote in a blog post.
