Quad core Cortex-A15


Following its dual-core Cortex A15 design, ARM has now announced its newest quad-core Cortex-A15 MP4 Hard Macro processor.

Based on the new 28nm architecture the quad-core Cortex-A15 will carry the "hard macro" brand, which means that it will have fixed specifications, thus enabling manufacturers to bring products to market more quickly and at a lower cost.

On the technical side, the new quad-core Cortex-A15 MP4 works at 2GHz, provides performance of over 20,000 DMIPS and includes Neon and FPU technology, ECC for L1 and L2 RAMs, 2x32KB L1 and 2MB of L2 cache. You can check out more about the features over at ARM blog.

The good side of the story is that ARM managed to provide additional performance while staying within the power consumption envelope of the Cortex-A9 hard macro processor, thanks to the 28nm process.

Thanks to, what ARM calls, extremely competitive balance of performance and power, ARM believes that this one could end up to be a perfect choice for notebooks as well as extreme performance-oriented network and enterprise devices.

ARM plans to unveil the full configuration and implementation details at the Cool Chips conference that will be held on 18th of April in Yokohama, Japan.
