Quad Core Cortex-A7
Cortex-A7 Processor Overview
Regarding the Cortex-A7 processor, once rated as arm's most effective application processor developed to date, it significantly expands ARM's low-power leadership in entry-level smartphones, tablets, and other advanced mobile devices. The Cortex-A7 processor is an energy-efficient ARMv7-A architecture-based processor introduced by ARM, using a 28nm/40nm manufacturing process for single-core multi-core MCUs, characterized by outstanding low power performance based on guaranteed performance.
What about the Cortex-A15 Vs Cortex-A7 quad-core processors?
The Cortex-A7 quad-core processor has exactly the same architecture and feature set as the Cortex-A15 processor, the CortexA7 is 100% ISA compatible with today's mainstream Cortex-A15, and the A7 supports new virtualization instruction sets, integer division, and 40-bit memory addressing. This means that any code running on the A15 core can run on the A7, but the operation is slower. But makes sense for the SoC chip to be equipped with both Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7, both of which can also be switched instantly depending on the task load, a mechanism ARM calls big.LITTLE. "For this part, ARM's official website describes "the cortex-A7 processor with exactly the same architecture and feature set as the Cortex-A15 processor, except that the microarchitecture of the Cortex-A7 processor focuses on providing optimal energy efficiency, so both processors are available in big. Work together in a LITTLE configuration to deliver the ultimate combination of high performance and ultra-low power consumption.
Is Cortex-A7 good?
The Cortex-A7 has the advantage of being more performing, consuming less power and less expensive than the Cortex-A8, and is also compatible with the Cortex-A15 ISA. Arma's outlook for the Cortex-A7 is: "As a stand-alone processor, the Cortex-A7 can match entry-level smartphones below the $100 price point for the period 2013-2014 with high-end smartphones for $500 in 2010."
