Arm Announces Next Generation CPU Cores: Cortex-X3, Updated Cortex-A715 and Cortex-A510


and breve: Arm’s new high-performance Cortex-X3 core can deliver 25% more performance than its predecessor when used in a phone and score 34% better than the current generation Core i7 in single-thread benchmarks. Meanwhile, the Cortex-A715 focuses more on efficiency improvements, with the Cortex-A510 receiving only a minor redesign.

During Arm’s Client Tech Day 2022, the company a statement Its line of next-generation processor cores that implement the ARMv9-A architecture. Semiconductor companies like Qualcomm, Samsung, and MediaTek will use these designs in upcoming SoCs for smartphones, tablets, laptops, and more.


The Cortex-X3 is a new performance-leading processor design from Arm, delivering an 11% increase in IPC performance over last year’s Cortex-X2. The company also claims that the X3 runs at 3.3GHz and paired with 8MB of L3 cache can provide 25% better performance than its predecessor. Increasing the clock speed to 3.6 GHz and doubling the cache allows 34% better performance than the Intel Core i7-1260P processor in single-thread tests.

Switching to Arm’s new performance processor, the Cortex-A715 consumes 20% less power while delivering the same performance as the A710, and improves performance by 5% with the same power consumption. The company captured these metrics using an identical process node for both CPU designs.

Meanwhile, the “small” core of Arm’s Cortex-A510 CPU got a minor update, which kept the same name. The 2022 version features 5% efficiency improvements using the same node. Interestingly enough, the new A510 is the only core in the current lineup that still supports AArch32, meaning 32-bit applications will only run on these efficiency cores.

Arm also announced its new GPU designs at the same event, including the Immortalis-G715, which supports hardware ray tracing.
